GO Shopping in Blackpool

Shopping in Blackpool You may be surprised to learn that Blackpool is the second largest retail town in Lancashire, with a shopping population exceeding 150,000. Ranking 99th nationally, the resort has a wealth of high street shops, large department stores and independent retailers that combined sell everything from clothes and jewellery to cigars and Blackpool rock.

Situated close to the Tower, Blackpool’s main shopping venue is the Hounds Hill Shopping Centre [map], which boasts more than 40 shops and a large café. Here you’ll find well-known names such as Littlewoods, Mark One, Dorothy Perkins, Early Learning Centre, Superdrug, Pilot, Claire's Accessories, Clinton Cards and Ernest Jones.

Once you've shopped 'til you've dropped, you can pay a visit to the Mall Café on the first floor, which offers everything from coffee and cake to burger and fries.

For those who are driving into the town centre, there is a multi-storey car park located at the top of the shopping centre that has 750 spaces and is open from 7am to 11.30pm everyday.

Other areas of the town that are also popular with shoppers are Victoria Street [map], Church Street [map], Bank Hey Street [map] and Market Street [map], as they all have an array of speciality and independent stores. Amid these streets you’ll also find Blackpool's main shops including Marks and Spencer, Boots, BHS, WH Smith, Woolworths, Next, HMV, Argos and JJB Sports.

Alternatively, if you prefer the hustle and bustle of a market then the Abingdon Street Market [map] near the post office is the place for you. Open from Monday to Saturday, this place offers a wide selection of fresh produce along with traditional household and other goods.

If you head closer to the seafront to Bank Hey Street, you’ll come across Pricebusters [map], which is dubbed one of the best indoor markets in the UK. Open all year round, seven days a week, the market has usual stalls, an entertainment area and a restaurant.
