Blackpool is one of the United Kingdom’s most famous tourist destinations having welcomed visitors to the town since the 18th century.

Its historic piers and annual Illuminations lights festival attract travellers from around the world, although the town also has plenty of other attractions worth checking out.

Blackpool had developed a reputation for being the home of stag and hen parties, but delve a little deeper and you can find some truly classy establishments.

The stars shine bright at The Showboat

Queen’s Promenade is home to some of Blackpool’s finest hotels and the historic Uncle Tom’s Cabin building has long been central to the entertainment in that area.

Uncle Tom’s Cabin began life in the 1850s as a small clifftop hut where landlady Margaret Parkinson sold refreshments to the adventurous visitors who took the cliff path along the coast from Blackpool.

It has since housed numerous types of businesses and has recently undergone a £500,000 refit to become the Ma Kelly’s Showboat.

With a mix of top music acts and regular tributes to stars like Luther Vandross and The Four Tops, the Showboat is the perfect place to enjoy a classy night out in Blackpool.
