Blackpool is a popular destination for Brits in the summer, however it is also perfect for a festive day out to enjoy the Blackpool illuminations and to do some Christmas shopping. While the whole of Blackpool will be lovely to stroll around, there are a few streets in particular where you will find great independent stores and market stalls to browse and purchase unique gifts for your loved ones.
