Blackpool Ny Festive - Queens Hotel
Blackpool is one of the largest towns in North West England and for 150 years its name has been synonymous with lively seaside holidays. In 1879 it became the first town in the world to have electric street lighting and the results of its pioneering use of electricity can still be seen today in its famous trams and of course the Illuminations which take place annually from the the last Friday in August to the first Sunday in November. Few resorts anywhere in the world can rival Blackpool. The world famous Tower, modelled on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, is 158m high and has an extensive entertainment complex at its base including the Tower Ballroom. The magnificent Grand Theatre offers an eclectic mix of drama, dance, opera, ballet and comedy including a yearly Pantomime. The Winter Gardens includes the Opera House (one of the largest theatres in Europe), Pavilion Theatre and Empress Ballroom. There are three piers, miles of golden sands, the spectacular Pleasure Beach with its breathtaking "white knuckle" rides, atmospheric trams, horse drawn carriages, Punch and Judy shows, a Sealife Centre, Louis Tussaud�s Waxworks, a Zoo Park, an Art Gallery - Blackpool has them all! Whatever you choose to do by day, make sure to save some energy for the evening and sample the terrific summer shows, lively bars and pubs, for it is at night that Blackpool really stands out as the most exciting of all Britain's resorts. For a complete contrast to the sheer energy of Blackpool, the excursions included in our itineraries takes us to some of the most serene scenery in Britain including the Ribble Valley and the Lake District.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
