Disabled Apartments in Blackpool

Blackpool Tower and beach postcard

One of Britain’s best-loved and most quintessential seaside resorts, Blackpool is a fantastic choice for a fun-filled accessible break.

There’s so much to see and do here – thrilling amusement and water parks, spectacular musical and theatre shows, glittering illuminations, raucous big-name comedy performances, and an entertainment-packed promenade that’s been delighting visitors for generations.

The biggest draw is the expansive seafront, with its seven miles of golden, Blue Flag award-winning beaches and host of family-friendly attractions. Britain’s only beach with three piers – North, South and Central – it’s where visitors flock to enjoy a multitude of carousels, fairground rides, arcades, live music, ice cream parlours and local street artists.

Many of the best sights are found along the Golden Mile, a dazzling stretch of the Promenade between the North and Central piers. Here you’ll discover the Sea Life Centre, Blackpool’s own Madame Tussauds and the iconic Blackpool Tower.

The tower isn’t just famous landmark, however; it’s also the site of numerous outstanding attractions like the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool Tower Dungeons, Blackpool Tower Circus and the Blackpool Tower Eye – where visitors can experience a 4D cinema and take in spectacular views via the wheelchair-accessible lift.

Opposite the South Pier, the 42-acre Blackpool Pleasure Beach excites with white-knuckle rides, such as the UK’s tallest rollercoaster, the Big One, while the neighbouring Sandcastle Waterpark has 15 different slides and rides, including Master Blaster – the world’s largest indoor waterslide.

Visitors looking for a quieter time can explore the scenic gardens and water features at Stanley Park, see exotic animals at Blackpool Zoo or take a stroll down the newly renovated South Promenade with its series of contemporary art pieces. Of particular interest are a gigantic mirror ball and the Comedy Carpet, which contains jokes from over 1,000 comedians and comedy writers.
