The area around St John’s Square has been pedestrianised & cobbled & the eateries there are able to make use of the space for al fresco dining.

Birley Street has been transformed into a Freemont Street (Las Vegas)- style attraction with huge Loch Ness Monster-style arches bathng the area in soft lighting & music. This pedestrianised street is full of cafes & more al fresco dining.

The Houndhill Centre is Blackpool’s under-cover shopping mall with national chains such as Primark, Next, Deichmann, Clarks, New Look, Jane Norman, La Senza & the flagship development, Debenhams. There are plenty of places to eat & drink here or even just to sit & people watch.
