The Tower light show is a must see
Sep. 2021
We decided to see the illuminations whilst on holiday in Blackpool. It is great to see the town all lit up at night. I was particularly impressed with the light show on the tower.

Pretty and bright

Although impossible to see all the illuminations by foot. I would recommend this way as you really get to see the lights and light shows really well. I could see that many tried by car, but looked like grid-lock to me. Well worth a visit.

The high tech show of the Blackpool tower looked amazing. but the rest of the lights haven't been updated in a few decades.
You can use a day pass on the trams and buses to view the illuminations but not the heritage trams.
Its best to use the tram because of the traffic.

See the town lit up
Sep. 2021
When visiting Blackpool we made a point of walking on the promenade and seeing the illuminations. There is lots to see and it tops off a trip to this seaside resort.

Amazing! If you're able to visit when this display is on, make sure to go. Me and my new husband loved it. The lights were beautiful.

Not the best
Sep. 2021 • Family
Kids wanted to do this but it wasn't the best experience.
Weather was fine but the open topped tram was not used .Couldn't take photos or videos as you couldn't see out properly. Windows not big enough
Stopped for a while whilst trying to be sold souvenirs.
Everyone was a bit disappointed.

Over Hyped
Sep. 2021 • Family
Last evening on our trip to Blackpool, we decided to look at the illuminations that lit up the sea front and some are very nice (like diamonds that are 3D), but others are what you would see going to a local city centre going Xmas shopping.

They are nice but over hyped, but my daughter liked them

Disappointing
Sep. 2021
We chose to drive the 6 mile stretch of illuminations . Due to the traffic hardly moving, this choice took three hours . We come from Essex, so if you have ever been to Southend Seafront to see the lights, this is very similar but much longer experience . The illuminated train and trams were great, but the rest of the lights were a little old fashioned and seemed tired. Having visions in my head of exciting lights, with lasers and up to date lights, this was all a bit disappointing, it was like going back to the 60's . This isn't always a bad thing, but it really is like stepping back in time . Karaoke bars, bingo, rock , drunk people shouting and dancing in pubs ( and on the streets ) kids, donuts, ice cream, stag nights , hen nights, all seemed more entertaining then the actual lights ! traffic traffic traffic . I'm glad I went, but I will never ever go again, because seaside entertainment is obviously not for me !!
