It's definitely worth saying that Blackpool is known as the oldest resort in the United Kingdom. Starting from the 19th century this place was visited by rich British people, who found here high-quality universal rest. Wonderful embankment attracts hundreds of tourists even today. If in previous years this city has often been flooded by water, today the embankment is paved with good-looking bricks and water doesn’t threat the locals and visitors of Blackpool anymore.
An interesting fact – this town is considered a marine one, however, it doesn’t have its own port. Blackpool got a status of an administrative center in 1998. This place is also known for giving birth to a famous brand of sport cars – Jaguar.
Probably, the most popular event in Blackpool is the festival of light. Each year it attracts many people from surrounding regions and tourists.
