Blackpool Illuminations & St Annes - Fri 13th Oct 2017
- Duration: 4 Days
- Product code: PX58GN
Every Autumn over 3 million visitors travel to Blackpool to see the world-famous Illuminations. The Blackpool Illuminations have been a major part of Blackpool’s attraction since 1879 when they were described as ‘Artificial Sunshine’. This archetypal resort’s other attractions include the Pleasure Beach Fun Park with a vast array of fairground rides and roller-coaster and of course, the Blackpool Tower which offers amazing views of the resort and beyond. We are based for this holiday, once again, at the excellent Ashton Park Hotel in the nearby resort of St.Annes on Sea. St. Annes is a much more relaxed and traditional Victorian resort with some excellent shops and cafes. Always a fun tour expect some evening entertainment and a friendly atmosphere around the hotel. Fantastic value for money!
After being collected from your local pick point around 8.00am we travel to our hotel with refreshment stops as required, arriving late afternoon at the hotel.
We transfer you along the coast to Blackpool for plenty of time to enjoy the fun, go up the famous Blackpool Tower, visit the famous Ballroom before we head back to the hotel for dinner. After dinner we head back to Blackpool to see the famous Illuminations.
Terrific half day excursion today as we head along the coast in to Southport. A classic English seaside resort with excellent shopping and attractions to enjoy. Returning to St Annes mid afternoon to enjoy the hotel.
We leave the hotel after breakfast and head home with comfort stops as required before arriving back in the local area late afternoon.
