There are plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind throughout Blackpool and its surrounding areas.
Situated in more than 100 acres of beautiful North West countryside between Blackpool and Preston, the spa and hotel facilities at the 5-star Ribby Hall Village are a popular destination for those wanting revitalising spa treatments, award-winning dining and luxury accommodation.
Blackpool is also home to various charming traditional coffee shops, several of which are located along the beautiful seafront, where amongst many other things you can enjoy a delicious afternoon tea. You can even sample your afternoon tea within the world-famous Tower Ballroom, built way back in 1894 and the setting for Strictly Come Dancing’s special November show.
All of this, along with the relaxed pace of life, stunning beaches and fresh sea air so synonymous with the Fylde Coast, makes Blackpool the perfect place for all the family to chill out.
