2021 - The Georgian Hollies Hotel - 5 Days (CU5AAU)
See the Blackpool Illuminations with £1 bar at the hotel plus excursion to Liverpool and river cruise!
People love the location, cleanliness and food at this hotel and it is wonderfully located in the heart of Blackpool, an ideal spot from which to enjoy the world-famous Illuminations. This weekend break gives you time to really enjoy this fabulous annual event and also offers an opportunity to explore Blackpool on your own whilst enjoying breakfast, dinner and great entertainment at your centrally located hotel.
Blackpool is the stuff of old English postcards, known for its fun and humour. There is plenty to do for all ages on a traditional British seaside holiday to this iconic destination. From the high-tech adrenaline of its famed Pleasure Beach to its three distinctive piers dotted along the golden beach and remember to pick up a stick of Blackpool rock.
The world-famous Illuminations need little introduction. Miles of festoons along the promenade attract 3 million visitors every year and you'll be staying right in the heart of it! An extraordinary 3D projection show on the front of Blackpool Tower adds to the atmosphere and it is hardly surprising that it is known as the greatest light show on earth!
In addition to enjoying lots of free time in Blackpool and a coach tour to see the magical Illuminations. we'll also take you on an excursion to Liverpool and on a relaxing river cruise.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
