Explore Around Blackpool

We’ve got LOTS of web pages for you to browse through, featuring many of the interesting places you’ll find here.

There’s miles of glorious seaside here at the Fylde Coast – with plenty of razzmatazz and splendid solitude sitting cheek by jowl.

But explore a little bit further and you’ll find some lovely countryside in places like Stanley Park. All around the borough of Blackpool you can find amazing heritage and years of history staring back at you. You just need to know where to look!

There’s a lot more to Blackpool than just the seafront. Heading inland, the boundary follows a bit of a wiggly line, meeting both Wyre and Fylde in various places in the countryside.
