Hi there! I have lived by the sea all of my life. I am looking to buy a house and it seems BP is one of the few seaside areas I can afford to buy that has enough to do in my spare time and is not in the middle of nowhere. Can you please advise on areas to avoid/ Postcodes and areas you would suggest perhaps that are safer for a single 40 something to live? Many thanks. x

Where you you currently live ?
I ask because to most people Blackpool is an acquired taste .
It's very much a stags and hens destination ( pre covid )
Chips with everything , candyfloss , sticks of rock , kiss me quick hats.
Of course I'm only talking about the sea front area .
Have you thought about looking just outside Blackpool ?
Just up the road is much quieter Lytham.
