Watch a rock making demonstration
Ever wondered how this good old seaside staple is made? Visit a rock making demonstration and you’ll see first hand how the sweet stuff is made, how it’s flavoured, coloured and rolled by hand, and even how they manage to get the lettering inside! Plus there’s usually a free taste to look forward to after the demonstration too. There are a few such demonstrations in various rock shops to choose from, including Rock City and Rock Candy Kingdom.

People visit Blackpool time and time again to see the spectacular illuminations that light up the sea front, between September and November. The switch on prompts a fun party atmosphere to descend on the town, and it’s always a joy to see the lights spring to life.
The illuminations span an impressive length of 6 miles, running from Squires Gate to Red Bank Road, and are a joy to behold for adults and kids of all ages.
