History of Blackpool

The history of Blackpool can be traced back to the late 1600s when its growth was first sparked by the arrival of Sir Peter Hesketh and his wife, Lady Mary Fleetwood. With their estates located along the edge of the new seafront, the two Victorian families helped develop the town's railway lines and encouraged the growth of its dynamic cultural life.

Since then, the town has grown significantly in size and popularity. It was incorporated as a Municipal Borough in 1876, and its population in the subsequent 1871 census was recorded as 16,032.

By the turn of the 20th century, Blackpool was a bustling seaside destination, with 5.5 million visitors annually. This number has increased exponentially and according to statistics released in 2020, it was reported that Blackpool was the fastest growing city in the UK, with a population of over 150,000 inhabitants.

Throughout its history, Blackpool has been recognised as an important hub of the motor industry.
