The Great British weather doesn’t always guarantee us sunshine and heatwaves, but there’s always something fun to do in Blackpool whatever the weather.

Here are a few tips on some of the alternative things you can do when it’s raining in Blackpool.

Blackpool Toy Museum

Located in South Shore, on Waterloo Road – Brooks Collectables is a treasure trove of classic toys and memorabilia which will take Mums and Dads back to their youth, and kids of today will love the thousands of toys on display.

From Star Wars to Tron, James Bond to Superman – lots of classic toys to reminisce and remember – and best of all, it’s only £1 to enter the museum!

From a tank teaming with Sting Rays, to coastal and beach simulations where rock pool inhabitants roam. Home to over 2500 sea creatures – this is the perfect wet weather day out.
