With an abundance of award-winning attractions, Blackpool has something for everyone and this tour gives you the opportunity to visit the resort whilst seeing some of the surrounding area.
The world-famous Illuminations need little introduction, attracting some 3m visitors every year. As well as the miles of traditional festoons and tableaux along the Promenade, there are now extraordinary 3D projection shows on the front of the Blackpool Tower building every night during Illuminations season. No wonder it’s commonly known as the greatest free light show on Earth!
Monday: We depart the Travel Centre this morning and make our way to north with a stop en route, arriving at the hotel late afternoon.
Tuesday: Today we enjoy a one-way steam train journey through the Lever Valley on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway. This will be followed by a delightful boat cruise along Lake Windermere, from Lakeside to Bowness on Windermere. We will spend some time in Bowness before returning to our hotel.
