Autumn in Blackpool

Autumn in Blackpool always has its own magical buzz

Blackpool Illuminations boast the brilliance of Blackpool as six miles of dazzling lights illuminate the Promenade, which has been extended by two months for the second time in history. Running from September 2 through to January 2, 2023, the display features immersive and interactive installations on the Tower Festival Headland, a World War Two replica Spitfire on Gynn roundabout and the world-famous Blackpool Tower still shines brighter than ever after having all of its 5,752 lightbulbs replaced last year.

Iconic indoor venues, such as the Winter Gardens and Blackpool Grand Theatre have bounced back to deliver an exciting autumn programme, and there’s plenty of resort-wide festive-filled activities coming soon for Christmas.
