"Candy Floss in Winter" Top 5 Page for this destination Blackpool by Bigs

Blackpool Travel Guide: 498 reviews and 921 photos


Sabs and I went to Blackpool on our way back from the Lakes to Liverpool on New Year's Day 2005. Gale Force wind blown in from the Irish Sea and so it was the perfect day for a walk along the beach in Blackpool.

A Rollercoaster Ride

As I love rollercoasters I would have loved to take a ride on this maybe most scenic one in the world. Well, sure it's all closed in winter except for the casinos and game halls and candy floss shops.... We were really surprised that it was quite crowded with tourists.

A walk along the beach promenade is always free!

Fancy street lights

I really loved the street lights. Wished that they turned them on at 1pm, but they didn't unfortunately, even as it was a real dark and grey winters day.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The beach is always for free!
  • Cons:No rollercoaster ride for Bigsi!
  • In a nutshell:Great amusement even in winter
