While sun worshippers may opt for staying on the beach, other visitors may check out the promenade or Blackpool Tower.
Blackpool, the first city in England to switch on electric streetlights, illuminates all six miles of waterfront each September and October.
Turn of the Century
Over-the-top it may be, but the perennially popular resort town has attracted huge crowds since the 1890s.
Vintage Trolley Cars
The vintage trolley cars rattle constantly up and down the promenade in Blackpool.
Blinking and giggling on the coast just north of Liverpool, Blackpool has been the vacation dreamland of generations of working-class North Englanders.
