This year for the very first time, the Blackpool Illuminations display has been extended and will now be shining until January 2021. If you’re looking for accommodation as part of your visit to Blackpool, we’re the perfect choice.
The Blackpool Illuminations, the greatest free light show on earth, have been a major part of Blackpool’s attraction since 1879 when they were described as ‘Artificial Sunshine’.
This year, the Blackpool Illumination are a little different. The annual display is to be extended by two months to provide an invaluable boost to the resort’s tourism season after COVID-19.
To help with social-distancing, a one-way system will be in place at busy times for those walking through the illuminated tableaux section at North Shore. To do this, head to Red Bank Road (at the end of the lights) and walk North to South.
