  • It really depends what kind of "weekend away" you're looking for - there is a lot of night life in the city centre with plenty of clubs, bars and pubs if you want to have some drinks and party while there are also lots of restaurants available if you'd like a less crazy evening. With respect to day time activities the Pleasure Beach is very popular during the summer months while it's open and the beach is likewise very nice for a spot of sunbathing - though it's doubtful that the sea will be that inviting!

  • There are plenty of amusement arcades and some new casinos are being built, so for the gamblers that's an attraction ... plus Blackpool Tower? Donkey rides on the beach, "The Sandcastle" which is a huge indoor swimming pool/water slides attraction with water slides, etc.

  • Blackpool is still very much the entertainment capital of the North West, even though it is currently looking tired. In Spring, Summer, and Autumn, definitely yes, in Winter, apart from the odd weekend, no mot really
