Blackpool Lights 2012 - Tripping the Lights Fantastic!

Jump to last reply

the annual Blackpool Lights, one of the most popular outdoor events in all of Europe, have taken the stage - if going to England in the coming weeks consider taking in this unique show in one of the most unique and weird places IME in all of Europe.

Immensely popular with Brits (except most who contribute to Fodors) this event draws working class types from all around to either drive their cars along the several miles of lights strung up along the Promenade along the cold sea - and Blackpool itself is also immensely popular - reinventing itself whereas many other once thronged British seaside resorts have become ghost towns with more OAPs coming for cheap bedsits than tourists. And Blackpool's Pleasure Beach (? name) amusement park is still rated the #2 paid attraction in Britain I believe. so if kids in tow another reason for doing Blackpool!
