Blackpool Pleasure Beach 

A trip to this sought-after town would be incomplete without visiting the iconic beachside amusement park. The Blackpool Pleasure Beach boasts an incredible collection of roller coasters that adrenaline seekers will love. The Big One, in particular, is only recommended to those with nerves of steel. With the first drop of 62 metres reaching 74 mph, you may get off with shaky knees and your heart in your throat, but there’s no doubt that it will definitely be worth it.

Situated close to the central pier, those who dare to take the jump will have the rare chance to swim with more than 2000 sea creatures, including rare tropical fish and octopus, but remember to keep an eye out for sharks.
