Blackpool caravan holidays and holiday parks
Blackpool holidays are right at the top of the conversation when it comes when it comes to UK staycations. The town’s iconic tower and pier are institutions in British holidaying history. A Blackpool caravan holiday in the summer is made complete by the stupendous pleasure beach, with incredible illuminations lighting up the promenade in autumn.
Both of our Blackpool holiday parks are a great base for exploring all that makes this Lancashire town such a special place to holiday. To the north, you’ll find Cala Gran, close to the fantastic Cleveleys Beach and backed by the River Wyre. Further south, you’ll find Marton Mere, close to a wonderful wetland nature reserve.

Things to do in Blackpool
Head up the Blackpool Tower – not only can you see for miles, but you can chuck in a visit to its historic ballroom and the gruesome Blackpool Tower Dungeon. Or try the daddy of all theme parks: Blackpool Pleasure Beach. It's got over 125 rides and attractions. And the three piers are lined with shows, rides and arcades, while the Winter Gardens theatre mixes musicals, plays, singers and comedians. For a change of pace, take the little ones to Blackpool Zoo or Sea Life Blackpool.
