Visit Blackpool

Bank Holiday Weekend

Blackpool always sets its stall out to offer families an unrivalled selection of Bank Holiday fun with no shortage of things to see and do.

With August Bank Holiday just around the corner, plan a jam-packed long weekend filled with family-friendly events, amazing attractions and free activities for all the family to enjoy.

Take your pick from Late Night Riding at Blackpool Pleasure Beach to celebrate the Big Dipper turning 100-years-old; find all the food at the all-new Abingdon Street Market; grab your bike and ride through a preview of Blackpool Illuminations; or book ahead at one of Blackpool's many attractions.

Our lovable spokesbird, Nigel C Gull, has pulled together a short selection of things to do this during August Bank Holiday weekend. Need some more inspiration? Head to our dedicated shows, events and attractions sections for an extensive list.
