Blackpool IlluminationsBlackpool Illuminations
Although Blackpool remains a popular destination all year round, it famously springs to life September to January. The Blackpool Illuminations annual lighting extravaganza sees over one million light bulbs dazzle along the seafront for almost six miles and attracts over three million people each year.
Blackpool Illuminations started out as a small-scale decoration scheme with 10,000 lights to mark Blackpool’s first royal visit in 1912. So popular was the display that it was decided that the event should be staged every year to attract visitors to the resort after the main summer season.
It has now become an intrinsic part of British culture and has grown into one of the UK’s biggest attractions and the largest free light show in the world, attracting over 3.5million visitors annually!
So, grab your big coats and woolly hats, candy floss and sugared doughnuts, and prepare to marvel at this dazzling display of light.
A city steeped in history, culture and attractions, Liverpool is one of the most popular city break destinations in the UK.
Liverpool's most famous sons “The Beatles” are celebrated across the city; from the exhibition in the Albert Dock to the famous Cavern Club where the lads once played, you can map out their incredible journey amongst the vibrancy and history that radiates throughout this city.
Liverpool waterfront promises beauty, history, art, music and culture all in an iconic, breathtaking setting. Home to Tate Liverpool, open Eye Gallery, the Merseyside Maritime Museum and of course the world famous Royal Liver Building. For the first time in more than 100 years the Royal Liver Building has opened its doors to the public and launched a brand new guided tower tour – the Royal Liver Building 360.
Liverpool has attractions dotted throughout the city and boasts more galleries and museums than any other UK city outside of London. From the British Music Experience that tells the story of British music through costumes, instruments, performance and memorabilia to Liverpool Cathedral, Britain’s biggest cathedral! Explore the iconic Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool’s famous waterfront, with its independent shops, lively bars and fantastic restaurants or If you fancy a bit of retail therapy, take a wander around Liverpool ONE, an open-air shopping district next to the city’s waterfront. It houses over 150 stores with everything from high street brands to designer fashion, as well as a variety of places to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat.
Why not take a ferry across the Mersey, visit the Beatles Story, sit back and relax in one of the many bars and cafes or visit Liverpool One for the ultimate shopping experience.
