Blackpool and the Fylde Coast are steeped in history, since its days as the go-to holiday resort in Victorian times. The landmarks here are legendary - the Tower, The Pleasure beach, the piers, the beautiful theatres, the golden mile, the illuminations, all the visitor attractions, the waxworks, the list is endless..!
As the UK's entertainment and holiday hot spot, Blackpool is host to a huge variety of festivals, markets, annual events and gatherings, from air shows to punk festivals, dance championships and the proms! Also concerts, west end shows, and not forgetting the world famous illuminations!
There are many smaller towns and villages in and around Blackpool. From the town centre itself for those wanting to be closer to where it all happens, to Lytham and St Annes for a slightly more exclusive address, to the fabulous shopping town of Cleveleys, or the port town Fleetwood with its famous market, to the lovely residential areas and fantastic schools in Poulton, Thornton, Bispham, Rossall, Staining and Over Wyre to name but a few.
The Blackpool area and surrounding coastline has benefitted greatly from extensive regeneration, which has seen numerous improvements throughout the area, from new sea defences, improved parking, the town centre shopping centre - this is a great time to invest in this area and to take advantage of the amazing value for money for buy to let properties as well.
Many people hold Blackpool close to their hearts, with fond memories of family holidays in years gone by. There is something for everyone here, and many visitors choose to move or retire here. It is a fabulous place for any age group and there is always something happening - who wouldn’t want to live here!
