Travel Tips for Blackpool

Greatest free show on Earth

by sourbugger

The Blackpool illuminations market themselves as 'the greatest free show on earth'. A bold claim, and if you have only ever seen a solitary 40 watt bulb in life before it would seem overwhelming...most of us would perhaps find it a little passe, even with added lasers and effects.

The six miles of coloured lights are strung along the seafront along and across the road. More impressively some of the trams that trundle along the front are bedecked with lights as well turning them into steamships or giant pineapple or whatever.

The display was orginally thought up to extend the summer season, and it now runs from September into November. It really got going during the 1930's when the tradition of a celebrity performing the 'switching on' began.

I've put a full list on the local customs tip. How many will you recognise ?
