Located on the far north-western side of England in the county of Lancashire, Blackpool is close to Blackburn, Lancaster, Pemberton, Preston and Southport. Blackpool enjoys a truly legendary and impressive coastal position. With many miles of sandy beach and superb vantage points from so many different places, the town is easy to reach, being linked to the north and south by the M6, which in turn leads to the M55, the A583, the A584 and the A585.
Especially close to Blackpool is the small town of Fleetwood, which lies directly north and has a population of almost 30,000 people. Known for its historic fishing port, Fleetwood is so close to Blackpool that is often considered a suburb and part of the Greater Blackpool region.
