The greatest free light show on earth has been a major part of Blackpool’s attraction since 1879, take a walking tour or hop on an illuminated tram to enjoy the six miles of traditional festoons and tableaux along the Promenade. There’s plenty to do during the day as well, from the Pleasure Beach to the Pier to the Tower and the famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom.


Like most things in the nation's most entertaining seaside resort, there’s nothing reserved about the Blackpool Illuminations, as over a million lamps cover the entire promenade in a sea of colour, including LEDS, searchlights, spotlights, lasers, fibre optics, floodlights and projections.

Featuring over 74 miles of cabling, this quirky light exhibit takes a team of artists, specialist engineers, joiners, electricians and mechanics work over 65,000 man-hours throughout the year to perfect the scheme.

The best way to experience the illuminations is on foot, with a bag of chips, hot sugared doughnuts and a stick of Blackpool rock.

Alternatively jump on an open-top tram along the golden mile or enjoy a romantic horse-drawn carriage for a totally different view.
