Welcome to all you would expect of it and also to those aspects which you might not at first expect, but which will add to your enjoyment of the town centre.

As if Blackpool's leisure attractions were not enough to capture the imagination and enjoyment of the millions of visitors we receive - the beaches, Tower, Winter Gardens, Pleasure Beach, Piers, Arcades, Golden Mile, Sandcastle, Zoo, Stanley Park and of course the world famous Illuminations, Blackpool Town Centre offers so much more for people of all ages and interests.

Reflecting the dynamic history of the town, Blackpool continues to change and develop. Conventional streets are turning into attractive pedestrianised areas, displaying an abundance of colour and European ambience, heightened by street cafes, floral displays and street events.

For shopping, the town centre continues to attract more national and independent retailers, joining the numerous stores and wide range of national names and local businesses already there, with the Hounds Hill Shopping Centre providing a spacious and attractive shopping mall in the heart of the town centre.

This web site provides you with an abundance of information on what the town centre has to offer you, whether it be parking, access and amenities, leisure attractions and events, arts and culture, shopping, food and drink or just general news of the town centre.
