Whether you’re heading to the Pleasure Beach in your ‘kiss-me-quick’ hat, for the razzle and dazzle of the shows or want to escape the crowds in the tranquil Lake District, hiring a car at Blackpool Airport is the most convenient way to travel.
A beach that seems to stretch on forever and the promise of top class entertainment has attracted visitors to Blackpool since Victorian times. Go wild at the zoo, take a spin on the dancefloor at the Palace Ballroom, or buckle up for a thrilling ride on the Big One rollercoaster. After all that excitement, enjoy a more sedate but equally enthralling drive along the promenade at night, to enjoy the famous illuminations at their best.
The Lake District stands in stark contrast to the bright lights of Blackpool. An easy hour’s drive up the M6 and you’ll be in Kendal – the heart of Lakeland life. From popular tourist spots such as Beatrix Potter’s House, Hill Top, and Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage, to secluded nooks where you can enjoy the view, the drives around the lakes, meres and waters promise stunning vistas at almost every turn. With your hire car you’re free to go wherever you want, and while away as much time as you like, with no timetables to hold you back from enjoying your trip to the fullest.
