Autumn in Blackpool

Autumn in Blackpool always has its own magical buzz in the air and this year in particular is extra special.

The Blackpool Illuminations boast the brilliance of Blackpool as six miles of dazzling lights illuminate the Promenade - a spectacular show which has been extended by two months for the first time in history. Running from September 4 through to January 3, 2021, the display features a touching tribute to the nation’s key workers, a World War Two replica Spitfire on Gynn roundabout and the world famous Blackpool Tower shines brighter than ever after having all of its 5,752 lightbulbs replaced.

Iconic indoor venues, such as the Winter Gardens, have bounced back to deliver exciting autumn programmes in COVID-safe environments and there’s plenty of open outdoor spaces to leisurely enjoy the autumnal feeling in the air.
