These railroads have brought a boom in the industrialization aspects. The town became more accessible to people because of the opened routes that connect this area to different surrounding cities. Since the coastal area is the major attraction, different resorts have been centers of the development to attract more guests not just from England, but also in other corners of the world. Piers have been opened to increase more the trading opportunities. This booming business industry has also been a great opportunity for locals to have their own sources of income. While roaming around the resorts, fortune tellers, donkey rides, public houses are available, welcoming the guests of Blackpool.
