Blackpool needs you – vote now!

Tuesday, 15th September 2015

Fans of Blackpool are being urged to back the resort’s campaign to be officially recognised as Britain’s best beach holiday resort.

The resort is up against the likes of Eastbourne, Brighton, Rhossili, Tenby and others to be named as the best beach holiday in the #GoBritain awards.

A public vote is now open and VisitBlackpool hopes that local residents and the many millions of visitors who come to the resort each year will get on board and back the campaign to ensure Blackpool is recognised as number one!

Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “We have fantastic beaches in Blackpool which have been recognised with Seaside Awards for two years in a row along with a myriad of attractions and things to do.

“We also have a stunning programme of events, some of the best shows in the UK and an unrivalled history as Britain’s first working class seaside resort.

“Blackpool, in my opinion, is the original and best of Britain’s beach holiday destinations and I’d urge fans of the resort and local residents to get behind the bid to win the award.”

Voters are given the chance to win an amazing family beach holiday worth £600 including travel, accommodation, activities and evening meals.

All you have to do is visit to cast your vote for Blackpool.



VisitBlackpool is the tourism arm of Blackpool Council and is tasked with promoting the UK's most popular holiday destination to leisure and business visitors, both domestically and internationally.

  • Blackpool Illuminations will shine nightly from 4 September to Sunday 8 November
  • Blackpool Illuminations attracts more than four million visitors in 2014 to the resort
  • The Illuminations display stretches for more than five miles
  • Blackpool’s first electric lighting was in 1879 when just eight Siemens arc lamps illuminated the Promenade.  The effect was described by Victorian visitors as ‘artificial sunshine’.
  • The Lights are credited to the pumping of more than £275 million into the local economy
