Blackpool - The Sea Front

For Alex's Birthday we decided to go to Blackpool for the weekend. Neither of us had been to Blackpool before and wanted to tick it off the list of places we had visited in the UK.

Our hotel

Blackpool is a town that seems to be starting to undergo some regeneration work especially on the sea front. The sea front hotels however were looking very tired and in need of a lot of work to the exterior to complement the work that was going on along the sea front.

We spent a lovely couple of days wandering the sea front and because it was off season there wasn't a lot of tourists or hen/stag parties which made it quite peaceful. We even braved going to the Blackpool Pleasure Beach even though neither of us are really rides people.

The Grand National

So many roller coasters

On the last day before returning to London we visited Blackpool Zoo and had such a lovely time and took so many photos that it is deserving of a post on it's own.
