When in UK: Braving Blackpool

I read somewhere that Blackpool is the Las Vegas version of the United States of America. When I told that to British guy we met, he said “More like a poor man’s Las Vegas.”  Whatever it is, I will not be able to compare as I have not been yet to the US, but hopefully I will get to visit there soon.

We went to the Blackpool Tower


And watched 4D presentation before going to the top floor:

I must have said a thousand profanities in my head before I decided to “Fvck fear of the heights”:

My sister the brave heart:


I’m glad I really braved this, because the top tower’s view is absolutely beautiful:

Other interesting sights at Blackpool. Actually, they have similar tourist attractions as Scarborough.

Too bad we did not see it at night. And also we were told that Blackpool usually lights up at night during September til Christmas time. It looks like this (photo from the internet):
