My kids have never been to blackpool so I would like to take them to see the lights the last weekend of this month so could someone recommend any places to stay close to the town but they must have parking.

I've stayed in this Premier Inn recently:
On arrival, you'll be given a parking slip to display on your dashboard............for free parking.
The location is good, it's just a short walk to the promenade at the Pleasure Beach end.
If you're a fan of the heritage trams, like me, then you'll be pleased to learn that they're still running. You don't need to book but you will have to queue (just after the illuminations are switched on) for a ride. I recommend that you join the queue from 6:40pm.
I was there last week. I let the first tram (the ship) go and waited for the next tram............the train. I think it's brilliant and judging by the gazes of the pedestrians and motorists we passed...........they did too.
Ticket prices are £6 per adult and £5 for each child between the age of 5 and 15 years old. The trams are staffed by volunteers who will give you a talk about the history of the trams and illuminations.
Enjoy your Blackpool trip.
I've also stayed at the Best Western Carlton a few years back, which is on the front in the North and has parking.
