Christmas in Blackpool

Christmas is now over for another year.

From 19 November 2021 to the 3 January 2022, Blackpool's Tower Festival Headland turned into a magical winter wonderland complete with a free skating rink, simulated snowfalls, Magical Express tram tours; larger-than-life installations and Christmas cabins. It was our first year bringing the ultimate festive paradise beside the sea and we enjoyed every magical moment of it all!

Thank you to all the visitors and residents who experienced Christmas By The Sea, kindly supported by Northern, and we hope you savoured every special second. We will be back to celebrate the festive season in style later in the year. Until then, keep checking this page to find out what's in store for Christmas 2022 in the UK's favourite seaside resort.
