Blackpool Pleasure Beach Casino

Blackpool Pleasure Beach Casino is one of a few truly Art Deco buildings in the United Kingdom. It’s architecture is brash and loud, more closely related to the American roots of Art Deco than to its more reserved Modernist contemporaries in Britain. It was built between 1937-40 and designed by Joseph Emberton. Contrary to its name, the building actually never served as a gambling casino, but as a bar and restaurant. It became a favourite spot at Blackpool’s Pleasure beach.

The building was altered in the 1970s, with a roof extension that replaced its roof garden. The illustration shows the original, 1940s state.

Great as a gift for Art Deco lovers and North West locals. It’s available in two background colour options – mustard yellow and grey.

I illustrated the buildings using original architecture elevations, photographs and 3D models. Cross referencing of various sources allows me to achieve a high level of detail and real, undeformed dimensions of the façade.
