They might be the last thing on your mind as you make your way to the beach on a sunny day, but Blackpool has another, spookier side. Whisper it carefully, but the town is something of a hot spot for ghostly goings on. From spirits that like to move curtains and props at Blackpool Theatre, to the dripping figure of a drowned nun, we have spooks in abundance (and if you like that sort of thing, a whole range of old and new sightings can be found HERE).
Far from pretending they know nothing about it however, these days the town actively encourages visitors with an interest in the paranormal. Let’s face it, nothing beats a good ghost story. Hence you couldn’t find a more perfect guide than “Haunted Blackpool” author Stephen Mercer. Across several dates around this October, you can join him on night time “ghost walks” where you can expect blood chilling tales and fascinating local history. What better way to build up to Halloween? The strolls start at North Pier at 7:30pm, a per head price of just a fiver a good deal less scary than the dark tales you’ll hear! Full details and online tickets HERE:
After all that scary stuff, we know you’ll appreciate a friendly face and a cosy room, which you’ll always find at Tiffany’s. A short break in the week is always affordable with us too. Check out details of our current rooms for a whole host of options at very friendly prices and no hidden ghouls or ghosts!
