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, the Winter Gardens entertainment complex and the iconic Blackpool Tower complete with the (calling all Strictly Fans!) Tower Ballroom! We are based for this holiday at the excellent 3* Doric Hotel on the seafront – quality surroundings, great service, food and entertainment. Fantastic value for money!

DAY 1                
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.

DAYS 2 to 4
Plenty going on whilst you are staying in Blackpool – your driver will adjust the excursion days to make the best use of the time. We have included 2 excursions –

·     Day out to the Lake District. Lovely time of year to visit this beautiful area as the Autumn colours start to show. Includes extended time in one of the lakeside towns around lunchtime – time to take a trip on one of the lake cruisers.

·      Day out to Southport. Great day out to this classic British seaside resort. Discover Lord Street, the famous tree lined Victorian boulevard with shops, restaurants and tearooms. Head towards the seafront to see Marine Lake – the largest man-made leisure lake in the UK plus see the spectacular long pier and wide beach with lines with sand dunes.

The hotels position on Queen’s Promenade has excellent transport links into town with a Bus Stop directly outside. Or take the heritage tram down to the Pleasure Beach and enjoy all the other attractions of Blackpool – this is the best way to see the Illuminations!

We leave the hotel after breakfast and head home with comfort stops as required before arriving back in the local area late afternoon.
