Famous for its iconic tower and promenade, seven miles of golden beaches, the magic of the Illuminations and its warm and friendly welcome, Blackpool has a population of 140,000 and is in the North-West, approximately one hour away from the cosmopolitan city of Manchester and beautiful Lake District.

After seeing a massive multi-million-pound investment in regeneration over the last few years, there are tonnes of exciting things to see and do. From theatre shows and music gigs to golfing or exploring the England's favourite park, Blackpool truly is the perfect place to live, work and play.

With a focus on the creation of new homes across Blackpool and neighbouring towns, such as Lytham St. Annes and Thornton-Cleveleys, excellent transport links, vibrant shops and a range of restaurants, there has never been a better time to take the next step to living and working Blackpool.
