Seaside Holidays in England

At the beginning of the 1900's there were no passenger planes, package holidays or car ferries. Only the very rich went abroad for their holidays, making the difficult journey by railway and steamship.

In 1900, most holidaymakers went to the British seaside resorts such as Blackpool. The development of the railways provided cheap and rapid transport.


Blackpool is the biggest and most popular seaside resort in England. Twelve million people visit Blackpool each year.


Blackpool is famous for its tower.

Blackpool is also famous for its illuminations,
which take place annually from September to November.
