There's less chance you'll chunder at the Madame Tussaud's, which has waxworks of all the big stars – and Jeremy Kyle.

But people forget that Blackpool isn't just a party town. Real people live here, who work and get an education.

Of course one of the best things about the town is its colourful locals.

And an honourable mention to goes to the local football team, Blackpool FC, and their former manager and tactical genius, Paul Ince.

So, Blackpool's a seaside town with everything. Historic piers, amusement parks, sand dunes and beaches …
