Attractions / Blackpool News / What's On Father’s Day in Blackpool 8 June 2017 by Visit Blackpool Say thank you this Father’s Day with a fun-filled trip to Blackpool. Our fantastic array of venues and attractions have plenty of ways to make it a special day for dad. Or why not go the extra mile and make it a short stay to enjoy all that the UK’s favourite beach resort has to offer? Attractions For those dads with a spirit of adventure, why not indulge them with tickets to one of our numerous attractions? There is the iconic Blackpool Tower where you can enjoy the splendour of the opulent Blackpool Tower Ballroom with afternoon tea or enjoy the 4D Cinema experience before taking in the amazing views from the top of The Blackpool Tower Eye. If he’s brave enough, try out the white-knuckle thrills of Blackpool Pleasure Beach where dads go FREE on the day or the amazing Sandcastle Waterpark. Alternatively, take a trip to Blackpool Zoo for an animal-mad adventure. The Merlin attractions are celebrating Father’s Day with bespoke offers for dads including 20 per cent off a shark experience SEA LIFE Blackpool or a complimentary pint in the Rovers Return at Madame Tussauds. Travel And if all that’s not enough all dads can travel free on any Blackpool Transport bus or tram. It’s Blackpool Transport’s way of saying a big thank you to all those dads out there for everything they do throughout the year. It's really easy, all you need to do is get on board any Blackpool bus or tram with your dad, pay your single fare (£1.10) and he will travel completely free. Father’s Day lunch Leave the dishes for the day and keep Dad out of the kitchen with restaurants to suit every budget. The Beach House, situated in the most idyllic location on the seafront, will also make the ideal spot for some late afternoon tapas. Or why not try the brand new Viva Vegas Diner, opening on the 12th June serving a delicious American-themed family menu or why not try one of the many restaurants located in the town centre offering delicious cuisine from Chinese, Mexican, Greek, Indian and much more. Or go for the al fresco option of fish and chips on the fabulous Promenade. Entertainment Blackpool wouldn’t be Blackpool without a vast array of top entertainment so why not treat dad to tickets for one of the brilliant shows heading to Blackpool over the coming months. Perhaps Derren Brown’s infamous Underground tour at Blackpool’s Grand Theatre or Monty Python’s Spamalot which will be staged at the Opera House in the autumn? For a laugh out loud evening join Viva Blackpool for one of their comedy-themed nights. On Father’s Day itself, Trevor Chance's Legends are back at The Sands Venue with a brilliantly refreshed line-up. Treat Dad to a short break With every kind of accommodation on offer, Blackpool is the perfect location to whisk him away. Why not choose one of the beautiful boutique B&Bs or indulge and relax in one of our luxury hotels? See the VisitBlackpool website to find your perfect stay. Shopping Being a dad can sometimes be hard work and today is meant to be a day off! Why not treat him to a day of shopping and spoil him with gifts from some of his favourite shops. Head to the Houndshill Shopping Centre where you can spoil your fashionista dad with clothes from leading High Street brands, the perfect item of jewellery or something to satisfy that sweet tooth. Or explore the town centre and visit one of our many independent retailers in the resort.
