Blackpool Pleasure Beach has been open since 1896, drawing crowds to Blackpool and attracting thousands of visitors year on year.

Even now, it is still popular, despite the multitude of changes to the park, with new rides coming in and old rides being replaced.

Here, we take a look back through the years with some iconic photographs of the Pleasure Beach.
