Blackpool has to be one of the great entertainment capitals of the world, alive with colour and energy. Although it fell slightly in popularity as cheap European breaks became available several decades ago, it is today once again as popular as it ever was. Book in to a Lancashire hotel or B&B in the area and you'll be in for a truly unique experience, as Blackpool is completely different from all the other towns in Lancashire, and a world away from industrial heritage and medieval castles. Entertainment and having fun are what Blackpool is all about. These worthy aspirations are embodied in the Winter Gardens, Grand Theatre and, perhaps above all, in the iconic Blackpool Tower. Presiding over a glittering empire of piers, arcades, bingo halls and fast-food outlets, Blackpool Tower is a true symbol of Lancashire's answer to Las Vegas!
Lancashire Hotels for Blackpool Tower
Blackpool tower goes a way back. Opened in 1894, it was a conscious imitation of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It takes pride of 103rd place in the list of the world's tallest freestanding towers and is one of Blackpool's premier tourist attractions. Visit Blackpool Tower from your Lancashire hotel and you'll find that it's simply a tower. There are all sorts of entertainment venues and fun experiences packed into it, such as a bar on the fifth level and a magnificent sea-view terrace. This is the best spot to relax and enjoy views up and down the Fylde coast and across the city, which is gloriously lit up at night.

It's impossible to come to Blackpool, stay at a Lancashire hotel or guesthouse here, and not experience the delights of Blackpool Tower for yourself.
