Blackpool

Blackpool is a popular seaside resort in Lancashire, on the Irish Sea coast of England. It is best known for Blackpool Pleasure Beach, an old-school amusement park with vintage wooden roller coasters as well as the UK’s tallest roller coaster, the Big One.  The landmark Blackpool Tower was built in 1894 and visitors can go to a glass viewing platform and then up the metal staircases for a magnificent views of the town and surrounding countryside.In the autumn thousands of visitors go to see the famous Blackpool Illuminations. It also boast three piers, North, Central and South.

I visited there a couple of weeks ago towards the end of the Illuminations, but the following set of images shows more natural illuminations.

The Comedy Carpet
The Comedy Carpet seen from the top of Blackpool Tower, is a celebration of comedy on an extraordinary scale. Referring to the work of more than 1,000 comedians and comedy writers, the carpet gives visual form to jokes, songs and catchphrases dating from the early days of variety to the present. It contains over 160,000 granite letters embedded into concrete, pushing the boundaries of public art and typography to their limits.
