Blackpool Illuminations

The world-famous Illuminations need little introduction. There are six miles of traditional festoons and tableaux along the Promenade - no wonder it’s commonly known as the greatest free light show on Earth!


Blackpool Illuminations 2020 update:

The 2020 Blackpool Illuminations display has been suspended until further notice due to the national lockdown restrictions. The Blackpool Tower, which has become a symbol of hope and optimism throughout this pandemic, will remain lit.

Subject to lockdown restrictions being eased sufficiently at the start of December, the Illuminations will be switched on again and run through Christmas and New Year to January 3, 2021.
