Christmas in Blackpool

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

Blackpool will 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 will return for the third year running until 7 January 2024.

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, now extended until 7 January, 2024.
