We go every year to see the lights. Not much changes. It could do with some more moderner lights to make things a little more interesting.

The light are a must to see.The beach has had some work done so it looks a lot better ,The only trouble with Blackpool is at night it is full of Hen/Stag parties . I would recommend southport anyday

Blackpool illuminations are great the first couple of times you go however they don’t often add new things to see each year but my children love it each time.
