You’ve arrived in Blackpool, a bustling town and ever-popular seaside resort found on the Lancashire coast in North West England. It finds itself on the Irish Sea, some 15 miles from Preston, 27 miles from Liverpool, 28 miles from Bolton and 40 miles from Manchester.
Most know (and love) this flourishing tourist destination for its sandy beaches and iconic tower. Others come here for an Afternoon Tea in Blackpool. Why not do both?

Blackpool was initially a coastal hamlet of little significance until the 18th century when travelling to the seaside to improve well-being became increasingly popular. In 1781, Thomas Clifton and Sir Henry Hoghton constructed a private road for visitors, which in turn brought about further development.
Stagecoaches started running to Blackpool from Manchester that same year, and from Halifax in 1782. From 1801 to 1851, Blackpool’s population grew from 500 to 2,500.
After the railway arrived in the 1840s, connecting Blackpool to industrialised regions of Northern England, the area expanded dramatically and became a major centre for tourism.
Little has changed today, of course, with several Afternoon Tea Blackpool establishments well worth visiting. Go on – treat yourself to a nice, hot brew with sandwiches, scones and cake to hand.
