Blackpool remains a unique experience despite, rather than because of, a major regeneration project on the promenade. A wall of amusement arcades, piers, bingo and fast food stalls stretches behind the sands. At night, entertainers struff under the bright lights. The town attracts thousands of visitors in september and October when illuminations line the roads for miles. Blackpool’s resort life dates back to the 18th century, but it burst into prominence when the railway arrived in 1840, allowing lancastrian workes to travel to the popular resort.
