Seasonal Climate Variations / When to Go

Summer is always the most popular time to visit Blackpool and temperatures soar at this time of the year, with highs regularly topping 20°C / 68°F between July and August, and often rising higher during the sunniest weather. Towards the end of August, it becomes clear that autumn is approaching and the temperatures slowly begin to drop, averaging 16°C / 61°F in September, although many fine days can still be expected. September tends to be a much quieter month than August and is an excellent time to visit, while the climate is still favourable.

Spring is also particularly appealing and towards the end of April, you can be sure of plenty of sunny weather with temperatures of 13°C / 55°F or more, rising considerably higher during May. However, the nights can still feel rather chilly and occasional frosts in late spring are by no means unheard of.
