Welcome to Britain's spookiest seaside resort: Blackpool, renowned for its sweet candy rock, landmark tower, friendly guesthouses and live entertainment. But peer behind the phantom facade of bright lights and jaunty music and you will find a different side to the town; a world where the ghosts of yesteryear lurk in the shadows. In theatres, hotels, pubs, houses and halls, where the boundary between the realm of the living and the dead is thin, a brush with Blackpool's spectres is but a few steps away - for those who dare. From the horrific to the hilarious, this frightfully fun guide is packed with ghostly happenings of all kinds, written in a colourful style that is intended to both inform and entertain the reader.
