Stanley Park and Blackpool Model Village

Spanning 390 acres, Stanley Park is a relaxing and magical place filled with nature, wildlife, and stunning architecture. With a long sporting history, the park has a variety of fun activities you can enjoy such as crazy golf and trim trails with facilities for the little ones.

Explore the water fountains, Italian gardens, rose gardens, and so much more for the entire family. The Blackpool Model Village, for example, is a great attraction for you to take the little ones to. It boasts hundreds of creative village scenes with handcrafted models and figures to explore across 2.5 acres.


Penny Farm

This lovely horse rescue and rehabilitation centre is operated by the World Horse Welfare charity. You can take the little ones to meet the more than 60 horses, with guided tours available, and walk around the undercover barn area. If you prefer, you can walk one of the activity trails and watch the horses and ponies relaxing in the fields.

Learn about the Penny Farm environment and grab a bite to eat at the coffee shop. Starting 1st December, Penny Farm will have a Christmas fair with games, stalls, Christmas treats, and more – and even a visit from Santa himself!

Make sure to get in touch with our friendly team at the Box Office on 01253 290190 to book your tickets today – there is always something fun and exciting to see at the Grand!
