Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else
Whenever I visit Blackpool I always book The Shepperton. Low price and local to the pleasure beach. Geoff and the team are friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Rooms are adequate and the breakfast is always lovely. For the price I can’t fault it.

Thank you for staying with us again and we look forward to seeing you again soon

Staff very accommodating... helped with sorting a tyre as we had a blow.out on the motor way. Parking at the rear or outside on the front if a space available. Excellent location in South shore. Buffet breakfast... was good. Shower a bit slow but we were on top floor. The 2 ladies work hard to.keep every where clean and tidy. The male owner was nice and accommodating too. Will return 😁

Bank Holiday Weekend May 2018
We returned from the shepperton yesterday straight from the initial contact Vanessa and Jeff couldn't have been more friendly, helpful and accomadating. We booked last minute due to a problem with our original hotel. We are an under 9s football team.

Vanessa the manager welcomed us and showed each family to their rooms. We booked seven rooms for the Friday and Saturday and a single room for just the Saturday. From the other families there was also nothing but positive praise for the hotel and also the staff. Breakfast was also great and again there was nothing but positive feedback from every family. We can't thank you enough for the way you were with the kids and accepting thanks for the stay and we will see you again next year .

Just a great hotel with a great manger thanks Vanessa again for all you did

October School Break
Looked at a lot of b&b's on line but this one stud out value and location, short walk to sandcastles which is a great place for a family day out, but get there early as it gets busy.

We arrived at Blackpool north about 3pm so got a taxi to the Shepperton which cost under 10 pounds.

Very warm welcome on arrival, room was clean and clean Beeding ect , tv and tea a coffee and a iron in the room, on suite shower which was small and some mould in the cubicle, shower worked well and was hot , clean towels changed every day.

Breakfast was nice and staff were friendly and helpful, table probably had to many plates and cutlery for our liking but all was clean, we were offered hot tea and coffee in a pot with plenty for us, a high chair was available which we used but we only saw 2.

There is a small bar a pool table with tv in another room.

Wifi is available, there was room downstairs to park a buggy.

All a good place to stay and would probably stop again.

The owner was there to greet us with a smile.

The other staff were also cheerful and happy to help.

The breakfast area with its presentation was lovely.

The room size was okay. Suggest for a deeper cleaning in the rooms and under the beds. The rug was not so clean as well.

In general, it was worth the stay. It is in close proximity to the beach and other star attractions.

Nice Welcoming Stay
we stayed for 2 nights on a visit to Blackpool and I have to say that we had a lovely stay, a good nights sleep and the breakfast was very nice.

Only down point I do have is that the parking is very restricted, there is parking around the back but due to the layout of the premises to access this parking you need to walk around the corner, not a long walk but would be nicer if you could go straight through.

I would definitely stay again if we visit Blackpool.

We stayed here last weekend on a last minute booking for one night with 3 of our children. Jeff the owner was very friendly and helpful, room was clean with hospitality tray and sample shower gels. Also had 2 tvs one for us and one for kids which they loved. There was a small bar and games room which was open in the evening with a pool table etc. Breakfast was served buffet style and was delicious with lots of choice and the young lady helper was very nice. Situated 200 yards from south pier it was easily accessible with lots of local eateries and attractions. Would definetly stay again and recomend to others. Thanku for a lovely stay.

In 2005 it played host to three Group A games in the UEFA European Women's Championship. The official Blackpool Football Supporters Club is BSA, the Blackpool Supporters Assocoation. Our committee is elected by its members. Blackpool FC fully support our Association, and through our fund raising efforts, we put funds directly back into the club by sponsoring matches and players.

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Distance 1.4 miles (2.23 km)
Blackpool Tower opened on 14th May 1894, with the aquarium existing as a stand a lone attraction from the late 1870's. The tower is 518ft 9inches tall, with the walk of faith at 380ft from street level. The Tower alone contains 2,493 tons of steel and 93 tons of cast iron. The building at the base contains 985 tons of steel and 259 tons of cast iron.
The Tower has a viewing platform at 380ft above the promenade and is reached by a lift or if you are a maintanance worker by 536 steps!
Not for the feint hearted is the 'Walk of Faith' glass floor, a two inch clear panel that looks straight down to the Promenade below.
The 'Walk of Faith' glass floor panel was placed at the Tower top in 1998. The glass floor weighs half a tonne and is made up of two sheets of laminated glass. The 'Walk of Faith' can withstand the weight equivalent to five baby elephants.
To reach the top viewing platform at approximately 450ft you can walk up 2 flights of stairs.
The present Ballroom was designed by Frank Matcham and opened in 1899. The Ballroom floor measures 120ft by 102ft. It comprises 30,602 separate blocks of mahogany, oak and walnut. The first Wurlitzer organ was installed in the Ballroom in 1929. It was replaced in 1935 with one to Reginald Dixon's specification. The first organ went to the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens.
During the day visit the Ballroom to hear one of the famous organs being played. The Tower Ballroom is the traditional home of the mighty Wurlitzer Organ which rises up through the stage and complemented by the 3 Deck Wersi - the world's most advanced Blackpool Tower Ballroom - The Wurlitzer Organorgan, it includes over 600 sounds in the software, is touch screen sensitive and can create the sound of a complete orchestra.
The Tower Circus is positioned at the base of the tower, between its four legs. The circus first opened to the public on 14 May 1894 and has not missed a season since.

The present interior was designed by Frank Matcham and was completed in 1900.

The circus ring can be lowered into a pool of water and holds 42,000 gallons at a depth of up to 4 ft 6 inches, which allows for Grand Finales with Dancing Fountains. The Tower Circus is one of four left in the world that can do this.
During more than a century of entertainment, the world's greatest circus stars have paraded across its ring. The clown Charlie Cairoli appeared at the tower for 39 years. Britain's best-known ringmaster Norman Barrett worked the ring for 25 years.
Animals appeared in the circus until 1990.
It was planned to close the famous circus at the end of the 1990 season and replace it with an animatronic attraction. Public opinion and the fact the animatronics were not ready meant that the circus continued.
Today, the circus is produced and directed by Hungarian Laci Endresz. A live band (sometimes accompanied by Mooky the Clown) provides all the music for the show, often dynamically syncing with the performers' movements. The circus band play a variety of different songs, usually Latin for the acts. In the winter the circus stages a pantomime instead of the regular show.
The oldest part of the building is the aquarium which was part of Dr Cockers' Menagarie and Aquarium in the 1870s.[1] It was kept open to earn revenue while the tower building went up around it. The aquarium was modelled on the limestone caverns in Derbyshire. It houses 57 different species of fresh water and salt water fish and the largest tank holds 32,000 litres of salt water.[28]
The aquarium closed permanently at the end of the 2010 season and will be completely remodelled to make way for a new "Dungeons" attraction.[29] This is part of the investment by the Merlin Group, who took over the operation of the Tower at the end of the 2010 season on behalf of new owners Blackpool Council
