The Promenade

 

The Blackpool Promenade has seen a facelift of sorts, receiving all sorts of nips and tucks for the past few years.  The regenerated Promenade has helped secure Blackpool’s position as one of the top seaside resort town in Great Britain.

Blackpool’s Seafront Project started in 2005, with over 80 million pounds spent on the transformation of the Blackpool Promenade.  Some of the additions to the area include a new tramway built with high-tech trams every 10 minutes, an outdoor events arena for 20,000 people with must see public art with the “Comedy Carpet” and a new wedding chapel along with a top quality restaurant.  It is also home to the Great Promenade Show, which is a series of modern artwork installations along the South Promenade.

If you plan on staying on the Promenade, there are plenty of hotel options to chose from, including the Aloha Hotel, the Wallace Hotel, the Blenheim Mount Hotel, and of course the famous Blackpool Imperial Hotel.
