While in UK last December we went to the famous Blackpool by train from Burnley@ GBP11.30 pp return. If you want to experience the strong cold wind of UK then go to Blackpool in December. The wind from the Irish sea is really strong . Blackpool is basically hotels, casinos and amusement parks. There are countless of motels and hotels in Blackpool.
Blackpool has one of the ferris wheel is built above the sea!! It is a pity that we didn't get to try it because winter is not the time to visit since the amusement parks are closed most of the time during winter, only open on weekends.We also visited Pleasure Pool which has the famous one-mile long roller coaster and that was also closed the day we were there.
It seems that we were there at the wrong time of the year but at least we have seen Blackpool through our own eyes and experienced that strong wind blowing on our face.
