Blackpool, well what can you say really, I have been there countless times and until I came on vt and wanted to write a page about it, I realised that we had hardly ever taken a photograph there, we just sort of took Blackpool for granted. (Sorry Blackpool no offence intended)
As we live in the North West of England, only about 2 hours drive from Blackpool, its the kind of place where you go for the day, or even for the night, especially when the illuminations are on. These used to start about November, but every year it seems to get earlier and earlier. This year it was September. They are also switched on by a celebrity.
There are lots of activities to do but the majority of these costing money, and if the weather is bad (which being England we can't rule this out) there are indoor activites, but again costing money. I personally think that spending a week here with children would be rather expensive.
