As one of the United Kingdom’s largest coastal resorts, Blackpool has plenty to offer its residents – it’s not just a good place to work; it’s a great place to live. In addition to its bustling centre and historic seafront, the town is world famous for its many attractions, including the Blackpool Tower. This seaside town also offers a number of scenic cycling routes round its local parks and across the surrounding countryside, as well as panoramic views of the coast on its picturesque Promenade. Further afield, Blackpool benefits from less than three-hour connections via rail to Edinburgh in the north and London in the south.
