LMS Railway Blackpool Beach Poster
Back in the 18th Century Blackpool began as a small village with a great beach - no less than seven magnificent miles of sand. The resort grew fast in Victorian times with all its major attractions within a stone's throw of the sands. Nowadays entertainment in all forms is Blackpool's greatest attraction, but the beach is still a magnet for many - a place to snooze away hot afternoons, a space for family fun and games. The sands stretch from the bustling Central Beach with its donkeys, ice-cream and seafood stalls to the tranquil, wide- open spaces of Bispham to the North and Squires Gate to the South.
