Here at Blackpool Council's Heritage Service we care for and support the celebration of Blackpool's heritage.

We deliver events and engagement opportunities for people to learn about and enjoy Blackpool's diverse heritage.
We care for the historic collections and provide research and access to these collections through the History Centre.

Finally, we work closely with volunteers and the community to celebrate the heritage of Blackpool.

News and Updates


We have launched our website earlier than intended to allow people to share and enjoy digital heritage online during the Coronavirus lockdown. We will seek to constantly improve and update the site and content over the next couple of weeks. 

Our heritage tours programme will be reviewed regularly as the Coronavirus lockdown progresses but at present all tours and other events and activities have been cancelled until the end of April.

The Central Library, the building in which the Heritage Service and the History Centre is located, is currently closed to the public due to Coronavirus.
