Christmas in Blackpool

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the nation’s favourite family (and elf) friendly resort.

Blackpool has become an extraordinary winter wonderland, filled with a sackful of shows, entertainment, events and attractions to create the ultimate festive paradise beside the sea. Even better, the resort's magical Christmas By The Sea has returned for the second year running until 2 January 2023, sponsored by TalkTalk.

We can't wait for you to savour every special second, wrap up in your cosiest Christmas jumper and experience the true magic of Blackpool. 

Christmas By The Sea

Situated on the Tower Festival Headland opposite The Blackpool Tower, the Christmas village will once again include a free-to-use skating rink, festive light installations and projection shows, themed log cabins, artificial snowfalls, children’s attractions and the return of the Star Flyer, running until Monday 2 January.

A visit to see Father Christmas is always a magical annual tradition for many families filled with surprise, wonder and dreams.

We’ve recently heard the exciting news from Santa’s special elves that the main man himself is returning to the seaside to sprinkle some seasonal spirit during selected dates throughout December.
