When you hear about a donkey ride on the beach you automatically think of Blackpool, the seaside town nestled in the North West of England (Lancashire) situated on the west coast by the Irish Sea. Blackpool was not always the hustle and bustle that it is today, previously a small coastal town and remained this way up until the mid-18th century when everyman and his donkey started to travel to the coast for a well earned bathe in the salty waters, deemed as the new fashionable thing to do to improve well-being! I would suggest if you wish to do the same then you have a small window of about 6 days (I mean weeks hehe) to dip your toes in to the Irish sea. Since those early days the overall local economy has hardly changed, well and truly reliant on the tourism industry. Moving forwards to the here and now and Blackpool still shines as one of Britain’s most visited and popular destinations, not suprisingly bringing in millions of holiday makers each and every year.
Fun and excitement can be found all along the main strip and is why so many return time and time again. The world famous Pleasure Beach Resort offers many exciting rides including a quite enjoyable (if you close your eyes) rollercoaster where your photo shall be taken at the most inopportune moment :-) Now you are fully high on adrenaline why not try out another rollercoaster, this time an indoor one. It is actually a waterslide rollercoaster and can be found inside the Sandcastle Waterpark.
Blackpool certainly comes up trumps as far as overall entertainment is concerned, something for mum and dad as well as the kids! The now famous promenade is the place to be, oozing fun! Take a peek around Madame Tussauds and see the latest celeb line up, then afterwards off to the Sea Life Centre to see what creatures from the deep are lurking around every next corner. Blackpool is also a great base to use if you wish to explore the surrounding areas.
