A great place to start is Blackpool beach. It has three piers: North Pier, Central Pier and South Pier which are full of rides and cotton candy. These piers are perfectly accessible for those travelling with buggies and have a fantastic view. The beach itself is a sandy haven; it’s a wonderful spot to make sandcastles, eat ice cream and enjoy the sun.

They have shows such as TV favorites; Peppa Pig, Tiger Who Came To Tea, Bing Live!, Sooty, Ben and Holly, In The Night Garden, and of course their pantomimes that have fun music and actions that children love.
