We're off to Blackpool for a weekend: we'll have 3 children in our party, 5, 4 and 2.

What's the best attractions for our group and what should we avoid? I was thinking Central Pier one day but it seems like lots of the rides may be too big...?

Thanks if you can help. smile

Do not go into Pleasure Beach, you'll have to pay to get in and rides too big for your littlies. The pier rides are good for little cars and helter skelter. You could do donkeys, poke about on beach, tram ride is good ( get a day pass from newsagents, cheaper than on tram) and fish and chip tea at Bisphams eat in cafe. Lights go on 7:30, magic for little ones! Enjoy and take fleeces smile

Thank you!

Do all newsagents do the day passes, perspective? That sounds like a great idea.

You might find out local site for Blackpool useful, as it has hundreds of listings for things to do and places to go:

The sandcastle water park is great ,although may be busy at a weekend.

Stanley park
The zoo
Sealife centre
Maybe do a walk from pleasure beach to the tower n back. Do some of it on the beach. Get some chips. Look at the tat. That could wear them out.
Sandcastle would be good but it's pricy
Also it's luminations at the no so you could get a team to see them

Oh AND the tower and circus of course! Plenty to do smile

Avoid the main strip late in the evening/ Blackpool gets a lot of hen parties/stag parties at weekends.
