Blackpool - A coastal town full of character, by the Irish Sea in the Northwest of England. There's so much to do and see, whether you're 5 or 50 – and that’s in the summer AND winter.

Liverpool - It's one of the UK’s most popular city breaks, and it’s clear why. Located right where the River Mersey meets the Irish Sea in the North West of England, it’s bursting with diverse and fascinating history, attractions – and lots and lots of shopping.

Norbreck Castle Hotel & Spa - Tucked away on the far North of Blackpool's seafront, the Norbreck is quietly located, but has easy access to the buzz of the town centre. One of the largest Brittania-run hotels (and most distinct), it has a well-equipped health club – and unrivalled entertainment.

Blackpool Illuminations

Blackpool Illuminations
Between September and January, Blackpool shines brighter than any summer's day
The UK’s most popular seaside resort does not shut its doors in winter. Instead, it holds its annual free light show, The Blackpool Illuminations – and it’s the best time of year to visit!

It all began in 1879
8 arc lamps sprung up along Blackpool’s seafront in 1879 (the council was experimenting with electric street lighting). This amped up to 10,000 lights in 1912 when Princess Louise opened the new section of the promenade named after her. In 1925, following WWI, the town’s light display returned bigger and better than ever.

The Illuminations now feature 1 million bulbs and 500+ designs and features
With new investment and innovation, the scale, density, and content of the Illuminations have improved year on year.

The 3.5 million annual visitors will experience a different Blackpool – a world of lit-up buildings, fairground rides, lamp posts and trams. One where its promenade, three piers and iconic tower are flashing in rainbow colours, lights, and sound. You can even add to the six miles of madness with your own light-up novelty from the prom’s street sellers.

The best seat to see the show is aboard one of the illuminated Heritage Trams
The current fleet includes the HMS Blackpool, the Fisherman’s Friend Trawler, the Western Train - and even a double-decker. The Illuminations Tour operates each evening from the ‘Heritage Tram Tours’ stop (over the road from the Pleasure Beach).

Don’t miss - Walk through the Tableaux section (at the North end) – it features the oldest illumination still on display, the Teddy Bears Picnic.

Blackpool

Blackpool
A year-round resort
Blackpool is a coastal town full of character, by the Irish Sea in the Northwest of England. It’s the UK’s most popular seaside resort – and that’s in the summer AND winter.

In the summer, traditional seaside novelties like fish and chips, amusements, piers and long stretches of golden sand siren the masses.

In the winter, it’s the world-famous Illuminations and the transformation they have on the town that attracts 3.5 million visitors every year. Many local establishments now trade all year round.

Take a unique trip around town
The only surviving first-generation tramway in the UK provides a unique trip around town. A number of the original fleet are still available to ride, and there are illuminated trams running September to January - the best seat to see the Illuminations!

A playground for kids – and adults alike
There is so much to do and see in Blackpool, whether you’re 5 or 50! There are so many attractions – including golden beaches, the Pleasure Beach, Zoo, SEA LIFE aquarium, Tower Dungeons, Winter Gardens, Opera House, Black Tower Ballroom, Madame Tussauds and Blackpool’s iconic Tower, the town’s landmark which was modelled after The Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Liverpool

LiverpoolIt's one of the UK’s most popular city breaks – and it’s clear why
Located right where the River Mersey meets the Irish Sea in the North West of England, it’s bursting with diverse and fascinating history, attractions – and lots and lots of shopping.

The Waterfront is definitely the place to be
The best view of the city's iconic skyline has to be from one of Mersey Ferry’s 50-minute River Explorer Cruises – board it from The Liverpool Waterfront. Here, you’ll also find the beautifully restored Royal Albert Dock, which played a key role in the famously friendly city’s maritime history. Have you ever noticed that the city’s name is below The Titanic on the mythical ship’s stern? Find out more at the free-to-enter waterfront Maritime Museum.

Liverpool Dock has restaurants, bars, independent stores, museums and art galleries including Tate Liverpool and the Liverpool Museum, as well as The Beatle’s Story, an immersive exhibition which takes you down the Long and Winding Road of the Beatles.

Liverpool is the perfect place to learn about the Fab Four
..It’s their hometown after all. Take a selfie with a larger-than-life version of them on the Pier Head, or visit The Cavern Club on Mathew Street - the live music venue where The Beatles forged their musical identity and became the club’s signature act following their first performance there on 9th February 1961.

Don’t miss - Right in the heart of the city is Liverpool ONE, the one place you can find all of your high street favourites and designers, plus food, drink and entertainment. If you’re after something unique for dinner – head to Liverpool Cathedral’s bistro for a hearty bowl of traditional Scouse. The local comfort food is served with homemade bread and pickled cabbage.
