Blackpool immediately conjures up thoughts of the Big Dipper, Kiss Me Quick hats, candy floss on the beach and of course the Illuminations. This is, of course, why we love this coastal town and why we think it's an awesome place to visit on your big birthday weekend.
Blackpool is the nation's most popular beach resort and attracts more than 10 million visitors a year. 7 miles of sandy beach combined with the Golden Mile of piers, amusement arcades, tram and donkey-rides, pubs, fish and chip shops and bingo halls all prove alluring and perfect for large birthday groups.
Blackpool beach is miles long so bring some comfy shoes to keep your feet happy whilst exploring.
Known as the Las Vegas of the UK, there are so many things to keep your group busy on your birthday party in Blackpool. Whether you want something touristy like a sightseeing tour or something unusual like human table football, you're going to enjoy this classic seaside resort.
Some of our top group activities for Blackpool include cocktail masterclasses, bubble football and laser quest all of which are perfect to do during the day before getting ready for an epic night along the promenade.
We've said that Blackpool is like the Vegas of the UK and we have the proof. Enjoy casino nights with welcome drinks, or watch a cabaret show, one of our favourite ways to kick off the night.
You'll find more gastronomical delights than just fish and chips (although, these are still a firm favourite in our eyes!), devour a man vs food feast and take on the monstrous burger, all in good taste of course.
See the illuminations (August-November) which add a bit of magic to the resort, one of the best ways your group can see them, plus much more is the boogie bus.
