Blackpool Hotels Perfect For A Family Holiday


Blackpool Hotels Perfect For A Family Holiday  by Carey Brand

Blackpool Featured Hotels

Blackpool is a medium-sized seaside town in northwestern England. It's not the first city people think of, when they think of England. That's usually London or Cambridge. With about 140,000 people, Blackpool is comparatively tiny. But as summer draws to a close, and autumn creeps upon England, Blackpool hotels fill with tourists. They come to see the Blackpool Illuminations, Blackpool's main attraction since 1879.
The Illuminations, which were originally called "artificial sunshine" change continuously. This makes an beautiful spectacle and allows each year's festival to stand out from all others. Lately the focus has been on energy efficiency and environmental friendliness. Numerous other events are incorporated into the celebration and there is entertainment for all ages.

Blackpool hotels are often booked solid during the town's peak season (late August to early November), so you should plan far ahead if you want to reserve hotel rooms during that period, especially if you plan on staying in one of the Blackpool family hotels.

Fortunately hotels in Blackpool span a wide variety of accommodations. From five-star short-stay rental apartments and similarly-equipped full-service luxury hotels to affordable accommodations to suit even the most budget-conscious visitor. Family-run bed-and-breakfast places round up the homiest of Blackpool hotels.

But as man does not live by bread alone, Blackpool is more than just the Illuminations. It is home to many first rate restaurants and boasts one of England's most varied and longest theater seasons: from circus performances and illusionists to opera and West End musicals, not to mention it being a stop on many major musicians' tours. Blackpool also boasts a water park, an amusement park, a zoo, and some of the highest outdoor climbing walls in the United Kingdom. And that's not even mentioning the expanse of sandy beaches the city has to offer.

It's important to remember that if you are planning to visit Blackpool during the Illuminations and want to stay in the city, you need to book your lodgings early if you want to get a good price and have some choice in where you stay. And don't forget to experience some of the other treats that Blackpool offers. You'll have a memorable holiday.

Located on the northwestern coast of England, Blackpool is a relatively small seaside town with a population of about 140,000. At the town's busiest, from late August to early November during the Illuminations, Blackpool hotels are often booked solid, so if you plan on making hotel reservations for that period, particularly in blackpool family hotel, it's best to do so earlier rather than later. A wide variety of rooms are offered by hotels in Blackpool. You can choose from a five star rental apartment or a full service luxury hotel
