Blackpool, Lancashire, UK.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Situated on the north west coast of England, Blackpool is a great cosmopolitan town for the Gay & Lesbian traveler, with lots of gay bars and a host of interesting things to do and see. Perfectly situated as a touring base, It is only just an hour's drive from Manchester's International Airport, with the lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales also only an hour away. Blackpool is a very popular English resort and economical place to stay. It actually had more guest beds than the whole of Portugal, when compared some years ago. This has an effect of driving the price of accommodation down as the Hotels and Guest Houses have lots of competition, which in turn is a real bonus for the traveler on a budget, with the average cost of rooms being 50% cheaper than London or other major English cities.

Popular from the Victorian era as a place the English working masses would love. The endless terraces of small Victorian and Edwardian houses would be filled week after week throughout the English summers until the 1960's until the advent of cheap air travel. The British then started to use Spain and Europe as their new holiday destinations. Blackpool had to change, with many of the small hotels & guesthouses making improvements to attract the short break and overseas traveler.

Pride Lodge for instance was originally 10 "standard" small bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities, which no longer suited today's visitors who are now looking for En-suite bathroom facilities and King size beds. It was re-developed to provide just 6 rooms, all En-suite, of a much more generous proportions and with up-graded facilities.

The town itself has a seven mile promenade, along with 3 Victorian piers and a tower of over 500 feet. There is a large zoo and spectacular park, along with a 42 acre Pleasure Beach Park with some of the oldest wooden coasters in the U.K. and of course some of the latest! There are some super villages and small towns in the local area, which can be easily reached by the great local transport network, with daily car hire also being an inexpensive option.

Each September Blackpool has a promenade show of lights every evening which stretches for 4 miles, these being combined with the World Firework Competition which is held annually.

Blackpool has the 4th highest percentage population of gay people in the UK. being rightly known as the “Gay Capital of the North”. So whether you're looking for fun, excitement or relaxation, Blackpool offers it all for the gay and lesbian traveler along with super value for money.
