Laugh out loud on the Blackpool promenade

Blackpool, Lancashire

Take a stroll where every step brings a new giggle as Blackpool has a floor covering with a difference.

Blackpool's Comedy Carpet is a 2,200 sq metre work of art with more than 160,000 granite letters embedded into concrete. Sitting in the shadow of the world-famous Blackpool Tower it’s one of the largest pieces of public art ever commissioned in the UK.

There’s nothing like the British sense of humour, and the Comedy Carpet is a bit like a trip to the Hollywood Walk of Fame; but here immortalising and celebrating the jokes, songs and comedy catchphrases of Britain’s most well-loved comedians and writers. It’s even been referred to as the horizontal Angel of the North.
