Blackpool South

Gordon has been the MP for Blackpool South since 1997 and was the area’s first ever Labour representative in Parliament.


He has now been re-elected on five successive occasions to the constituencies. 

The constituency, which was created in 1945,  is made up of twelve wards – Brunswick, Talbot, Marton, Tyldesley, Bloomfield, Victoria, Clifton Hawes Side, Waterloo, Highfield, Squires Gate and Stanley.

The seat makes up the centre and south of the town, and includes the famous Blackpool Tower, Blackpool FC, Pleasure Beach and is adjacent to Blackpool Airport. Like most British seaside resorts, tourism is the major industry in the constituency.

All of Blackpool South comes under the unitary authority of Blackpool Borough Council.
