When it comes to Blackpool hotels the New Kent B&B Hotel is family orientated and is situated in the North shore of Blackpool.

The South shore is where you will find the Please Beach and Central Blackpool where most of the younger visitors to Blackpool frequent. 

The New Kent B&B is located just off Queens Promenade around 1.8 miles from Blackpool Tower and 4 miles from the Pleasure Beach. Access to either or is easily done via bus or Tram which are both a mere 2 minute walk away from the B&B. There are many Blackpool Hotels on the Promenade or just off to suit the needs of all visitors to Blackpool.

When I was a child my Father would drive us from Manchester to Blackpool down the M55 to Starr Gate. We would drive slowly along the prom glaring at the lights as we went. (I think we only every stopped once to go in an arcade however we loved it.) There are collections along the way for everyone to offer a small donation that will contribute to the continued maintenance of the lights.
