Gay Blackpool

Blackpool is a popular holiday town on the North West coast of England, near Manchester.  Its sandy beach, fun attractions and Pier make it very popular with budget tourists, hen and stag party weekends, and has a massive gay population. The amazing Blackpool Tower stands up proud, and the one of Europe's highest rollercoasters in the Blackpool Pleasure Beach are amongst the most memorable things to do. Rather than big hotels, Blackpool is also famous for its thousands of cheap B&B guesthouses. When you go to Blackpool make sure you stay in one as its all part of the Blackpool experience, along with the tasty fish and chips!

Blackpool has a very big gay population and really good gay scene. One company called ITP owns most of the gay bars and clubs. The most famous is Funny Girls - a world famous burlesque cabaret venue. Then there is the massively impressive Flamingo nightclub. All located in the same complex around Queen Street in the gay village. Other popular bar's include: The Flying Handbag, Buzz, Roxys, The Mardi Gras and Kaos Bar.

If you're after a typical cheap gay B&B guesthouse right near the gay scene, I'd recommend: Northern Star Hotel, but there are loads of others to choose from.
