Blackpool is a town with incredible heritage. A time capsule of an era when seaside holidays to Britain’s best resorts were the highlight of the year for many working people; a claim, one should add, that for many still holds true today.
No trip to Blackpool would be complete without a visit to its iconic tower, the spectacular focal point for the town. Based on the mechanical magnificence of the Eiffel Tower which opened in 1889, Blackpool’s own tower was Britain’s tallest building when it first opened just five years later in 1894. This design captures its striking red structure against the backdrop of a clear summer's day. The seaside town, which stands at its feet, remains packed with excited tourists and residents seeking to enjoy its marvellous beach, theme park or simply soak up the hustle and bustle of the town.
Whether this design brings back childhood memories or inspires a seaside trip, why not keep British beauty spots in mind for the next time you’re planning a staycation?
