Blackpool can boast an impressive line-up of entertainment to rival the West-End, in architectural venues with a history and heritage all of their own. Including the beautiful Grand Theatre or impressive Opera House, one of the largest theatres in the UK.
The Grundy Art Gallery is a stunning Grade II listed art venue situated in the centre of Blackpool. Its beautiful Edwardian architecture hosts an extensive programme of exhibitions, including historical and contemporary art, featuring established and emerging artists from the UK and abroad.

Many delegates and partners find a round of golf the perfect way to unwind and along the Fylde coast we have courses galore to choose from and with three Royal courses in easy reach, Fylde’s Golf Coast is the perfect place for your event.
Food and Drink
Blackpool has a range of restaurants to suit all tastes, including award-winning venues serving local specialities such as Goosnargh duck, Morecambe Bay shrimps and of course fresh fish from the nearby port of Fleetwood.
If you’re looking for something more informal then why not try Pizza Express, Bella Italia or everyone’s favourite Portuguese restaurant Nandos. With all these located at the heart of the resort and on the doorstep of the Winter Gardens, they make the perfect choice for an informal lunch or relaxed dinner. There are many cafes and bistros dotted around the resort, perfect if you’re looking for a freshly ground cappuccino or a light lunch.
