  • Premium: Number One St Lukes - Escape to stylish rooms and thoughtful, plentiful attention to detail, all in a wonderfully central location. 1 St Lukes Road, Blackpool, FY4 2EL
  • Budget: The Garnett - Full of pleasant surprises! Not only does it enjoy an excellent seaside location and modern rooms, but there’s even an on-site and fully licensed bar. 18 Lord Street, Blackpool, FY1 2BD

Where to eat in Blackpool

  • McHalls Bistro: Traditional, homemade food. The Sunday dinner is highly recommended. 7 Lord Street, Blackpool FY1 2AZ
  • Notarianni Ices: This is an Italian-run parlour and they’re experts in vanilla ice cream. The Knickerbocker glories are impressive too, and there are plenty of other yummy desserts, sundaes and drinks to choose from. 9-11 Waterloo Road, Blackpool FY4 1AF
  • Yorkshire Fisheries: Lots of places do fish and chips but they don’t all do them like this! Make sure you leave plenty of room for this local favourite. 16, Topping St, Blackpool FY1 3AQ
