Blackpool sea resort 'simply breathtaking'

Posted by Greg Throughton

In news that may be of interest to those searching for caravan rooflights, the north-west resort of Blackpool Tower has officially been declared the UK's all-time favourite seaside holiday location.

Blackpool was voted number one in an independent survey of more than 4,000 people conducted by Which? Holiday, with the town's special atmosphere and spectacular annual illuminations emerging as some of its best draws.

Those investing in MPK caravan rooflights may be interested to hear that the research showed 40 per cent of people had been to a UK seaside resort in 2009 and the figure is likely to increase in 2010.

Rebecca Leach, spokesperson for Which? Holiday, commented: "The reasons people gave for holidaying in the UK were that the locations were easier to get to, they preferred holidays in the UK, or simply that they couldn't afford to go abroad."

She went on to explain that "the nightlamp in Blackpool proved really popular, and people felt that the resort was family friendly".

Unfavourable exchange rates are likely to encourage more people to take UK breaks, Lets Stay UK stated recently.
