The Comedy Carpet near the beachfront promenade is one of the funniest and most artistic attractions in Blackpool. The Comedy Carpet celebrates comedy with larger-than-life news clippings that act as a ground scape over a large swath of the cement seafront in front of Blackpool Tower.

Artist and humourist Gordon Young created the Comedy Carpet to display the work of more than 1,000 comedians and comedy writers to celebrate that it is healthy to laugh. The work features over 150,000 letters embedded in the cement. You will know when you've found it because of the number of people smiling.

Comedy Carpet highlights

Every step across the Comedy Carpet is a delightfully humorous experience. The best of the British sense of humour is on display 24/7, 365 days a year in a town that’s already considered a fun holiday town with beautiful beachscapes. The storied tradition of Blackpool entertaining its visitors is at the tips of your toes.

The pavement tiles that make up the Comedy Carpet are arranged in all directions with fonts of all sizes, so you are encouraged to meander about enjoying the laughs. You can sense the artistic nature yet also the cultural advancement that the Comedy Carpet brings to Blackpool.

Good to know when visiting Comedy Carpet

There is no charge to stroll about the Comedy Carpet. As a part of Blackpool’s event space known as the Tower Festival Headland, the Comedy Carpet is surrounded by other great destinations that draw visitors year-round. The location is easy to find because the carpet is right in front of the tower between the promenade and the shore.

If you are planning to drive to the Comedy Carpet and other activities, you may want to park just a little bit south close to the Coral Island Arcade complex at one of the car parks.
