Blackpool is the nearest thing Great Britain has to Las Vegas.

A seven mile long beach, three piers, a tower very similar to The Eiffel Tower and a super Pleasure Beach with "The Big One" Roller Coaster.

Each year the illuminations are switched on to thrill the visitors with a splendid display of coloured lights and tableaux stretching from Bispham in the north to Starr Gate in the south, some three and half miles.

Blackpool realises the value of the internet, visit these websites and learn about the brashest resort in Great Britain.
