Were you looking for Flights from Blackpool?

When to fly

Sun seekers should book a flight to Blackpool resort between June and the end of August, although sunny weather cannot be guaranteed and there is always a possibility of rain. During this period the beach will be slightly busier, definitely if you happen to arrive on one of the hot days.

If you’re not too fussed about the sun, flight prices tend to drop outside of the summer season, so budget travellers may want to book a cheap flight to Blackpool between March and May or September and October. Temperatures from March to May are generally between 3 and 15 degrees Celsius, whereas, it is slightly warmer in September and October, with temperatures around 7 to 17 degrees. If you visit during these times, you will still be able to experience many attractions the town has to offer, such as the Pleasure Beach and zoo, which are available all year round.

Visiting in September and October will also allow you to witness one of the most iconic sights in British culture, the annual lights festival – Blackpool Illuminations. This is Britain’s most famous light show, which is created differently each year to bring something new and unique to the crowds who come back every year to see it. The World Fireworks Championship also takes place in September, which brings together the world’s firework elite in one place to create a jaw-dropping display, as they fight it out to be crowned the winner.

Temperatures get even cooler during the winter months and on average can be as low as 1 degree to 9 degrees. There is also more rainfall during this time so make sure you pack accordingly.

City overview

One of the most famous seaside resorts in Europe, Blackpool remains a superb holiday destination for families, with its long sandy beach, spectacular illuminations and charming entertainment selection.

The highlight of a stay in the city is its seafront location. Hire a beach hut and stretch out on a lounger on the level sands, or venture into the lively surf. Kids will also adore the chance to take a donkey ride and munch on some famous Blackpool rock.

Next to the beach, visitors can spend their time riding the rollercoasters of the Pleasure Beach, with the exhilaration of the ‘Big One’ and its arena which hosts family entertainment such as ice shows.

Another attraction is the impressive Blackpool Tower, which was inspired by the Paris’ Eiffel Tower. Climb the tower and see the city lit up by a dazzling array of illuminations, catch a film in the Tower Eye cinema, or tour the spooky Tower Dungeons. Visitors should also experience the walk down the promenade – called the “Golden Mile” with its illuminated arcades and thriving nightlife.

Animal lovers will also want to visit the town’s zoo, which houses different species ranging from gorillas to elephants and sea lions. And when you need a little culture, the town does not disappoint, with the Grand Theatre hosting international acts every week.

For lovers of gorgeous scenery and hiking, the Lake District is not far away, while the cities of Liverpool and Manchester are accessible by car or train. For a slice of traditional British seaside tourism, and much more besides, Blackpool is an ideal destination.
