Beside the Seaside

Explore our Seaside gallery.

Our seaside gallery is the first you will see. That’s because the seaside is where it all started – on the beach. With so many people coming to Blackpool’s beaches, entertainers soon followed. The beach was Blackpool’s very first stage.

You’ll be able to watch a stunning 17 metre seaside scene come to life. Join oyster sellers, fortune tellers and deckchair dwellers on Blackpool’s golden sands. Meet the people and animals that helped Blackpool grow into a world-famous resort. You might even become a star yourself!
