Blackpool

More than any other seaside resort, Blackpool typifies the tacky English seaside resort. There is nothing tasteful about Blackpool, which is cluttered with souvenir shops, fast food restaurants, and amusement arcades and it is dominated by Blackpool Tower and the Blackpool Pleasure Beach amusement park with its roller coasters and sideshows. Although there is nothing quaint about this city, it can be a lot of fun and is worth visiting to see how cheerfully tacky it really is.

Blackpool is also famous for its illuminations, which take place each year between September and early November when the tower and 8km (5 miles) of the Promenade is lit with bright lights.
