Blackpool launches Miss Peregrine Blackpool Trail

14 October 2016

This autumn sees the worldwide release of Hollywood film Director Tim Burton’s latest epic – Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children.

To coincide with the film’s national release on 30 September VisitBlackpool launched Miss Peregrine’s Blackpool Trail, a peculiar competition with a prize to win a fantastic three-night stay and Blackpool experience for a family of four.

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is based on the best-selling novel with key elements of the movie filmed in iconic locations in Blackpool including North Pier, The Blackpool Tower and Circus, Comedy Carpet and the Promenade.

The prize includes luxury accommodation at the Big Blue Hotel, where Tim Burton stayed during filming. With a Blackpool Resort Pass you’ll be perfectly placed for a short break packed with magical mystery, as you enjoy family admission to Blackpool’s top attractions. From the quirky rides and attractions of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the famous Ripley’s Believe it or Not, there won’t be a dull moment! With a Blackpool Resort Pass Plus granting access to Blackpool’s other leading attractions – including the Blackpool Tower Eye, Blackpool Tower Dungeon, SEA LIFE Centre, Madame Tussauds, Sandcastle Waterpark, Blackpool Zoo and the Blackpool Model Village and Gardens – an action-packed break is guaranteed!

If that weren’t enough, you’ll also enjoy an incredible behind-the-scenes tour of the iconic Blackpool Tower, including exclusive access to areas which are closed to the public, before discovering the peculiar depot of Blackpool’s world-famous Illuminations.

You’ll also end the evening with tickets to the Blackpool Tower Circus where the movie was filmed. Plus, with a traditional fish-and-chip supper at Harry Ramsden’s and a delicious dinner at the Beach House Bar and Bistro to enjoy during your time away, there’ll be no end of fun on this peculiar and wonderful trip! £250 spending money – and copies of all three Miss Peregrine novels – completes this peculiar prize!

To enter the competition and play the game, you need to collect one of the Blackpool Trail maps from our VisitBlackpool Tourist Information Centre located at Central Promenade, Blackpool or from The Blackpool Tower.

Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council said, “We’re extremely proud that Tim Burton chose to shoot elements of the Miss Peregrine film here in Blackpool, it was a great coup for the resort.

“I would urge people to enter the competition to be in with a chance of winning this incredible prize in Blackpool”.

The Blackpool Trail will guide you on a tour through the town, visiting the locations where the film was originally shot, at each of the locations you’ll need to find a secret letter for you to collect.  Once you’ve found all eight letters, players will need to solve the world puzzle by rearranging the letters to spell the mystery Peregrine word.

The competition is open now and closes on 31st October 2016.
