Blackpool is a popular seaside holiday destination all year round, and Hilton Blackpool hotels make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. For a weekend break or family holiday with a little extra luxury, it's the convenient option – right by the beach. The hotel also has business and conference facilities, a gift shop, wi-fi, foreign currency exchange and an electric car charging station. No matter what you need, just ask at reception.
Hotel rooms facing out across the water overlook Blackpool's famous Promenade. The stretch is split into three sections: North Shore, Central and South Shore.
From North Shore you can get on a train at Blackpool North station. Trains run to York, Preston, Liverpool and Manchester – Preston is only 25 minutes away.
The Central area is where you'll find Blackpool's special Comedy Carpet, a 2,200m2 work of art celebrating Britain's best-loved comedians. It's also where the famous Blackpool Illuminations are switched on at the Central Pier every winter.
At the southern end of the promenade, Blackpool Pleasure Beach amusements and rides await. The South Shore is home to some impressive works of art, such as the biggest mirror ball in the world.
Hop on the Blackpool tramway to take a trip along the waterfront. The tram stops at the North Pier, which hosts theatre shows and has Victorian tea rooms. The tramway runs as far south as Starr Gate, stopping at the other piers and the Pleasure Beach on the way.
Madame Tussauds Blackpool is a short walk away from the Central Pier. Mingle with some waxwork celebrities, and then pick up some souvenir photos to remember your day.
Blackpool Tower is one of the area's most recognisable landmarks. Inside, you'll find a 4D cinema and the glass-bottomed SKYWALK. It's close to the Blackpool Winter Gardens and the Houndshill Shopping Centre.
Early and late arrivals can take advantage of the Hilton's 24-hour room service for a bite to eat. There are also several Chinese and Indian takeaways behind the hotel.
The hotel contains the Promenade Restaurant, which is open for breakfast, dinner and Sunday lunch. Order straight from the à la carte menu or try the Healthy Options at the hot buffet.
After a day of exploring, sip a cocktail on the comfy sofas at the Lounge Bar. The large TV screens in the bar show live sports, and the bar stocks a wide selection of wines and spirits.
