Tourism boost for Blackpool

  • 14 Jun 2017

Blackpool’s hoteliers are hoping for one of their best seasons in recent years - with figures predicting more people are set to stay overnight in the resort.

Factors ranging from Brexit to a Blue Flag for the beach are being credited for helping boost the resort.

Analysis by online booking specialist eviivo shows advanced bookings for Blackpool’s b&bs is up by more than 14 per cent compared to the last year.

Eviivo analysed data from more than 5,000 B&Bs nationwide.

It says a combination of a low pound, the Brexit vote and the triggering of Article 50 has delivered a surge in bookings.
