Local services in Blackpool
The picturesque Victorian town of Blackpool is much quieter and more relaxed than its neighbour, Blackpool. The town grew rapidly in the 20th century as a deep-sea fishing port, but now it has been transformed into a marina, with a shopping area, Blackpool Freeport nearby making it the ideal leisure spot. And if you like the idea of a shopping trip, make sure to go to the weekly Blackpool markets. Blackpool has a varied selection of shops with a few national chains but a majority of independent shops selling all kinds of things, from clothes repairs and ironmongery, through to gifts and clothes and wool for hand-knitting.
