2018 - Georgian Hollies - 5 Days (AUD0012)
The world-famous Illuminations need little introduction. Miles of festoons along the Promenade attracting 3 million visitors every year. An array of tableau characters ready to greet the world. An extraordinary 3D projection show on the front of the Blackpool Tower. No wonder its known as the greatest free light show on Earth!
The Promenade is buzzing with excitement with its unusual shops and amusement arcades. With plenty of places to shop, ice skating rinks and its famous lights. Visit Bonny Street Market or Freeport and pick up some gifts for the family. In the evening, why not enjoy one of the many shows at the theatre - from magicians to comedy acts. Blackpool's charm is its defiant embrace of the seaside holiday. It offers a mix of thrills, fun, laughs, and relaxation.

A half day excursion to Southport remains one of the most attractive resorts in England, and has earned the title of ‘The Floral Capital of England’s North-West’. Explore the shopping arcades of Lord Street, marvel at the largest marine lake in Britain and ‘take the air’ on the sandy beach.
Windermere, at 10.5 miles long, one mile wide and 220 feet deep, is the largest natural lake in England and is fed by numerous rivers. The Romans built their fort of GALAVA at its northern end (Waterhead), and it has always been an important waterway for movement of heavy materials. We will visit and travel through Bowness-on-Windermere – Lakeland’s most popular holiday resort – and an excellent center for boating activities, with over 10,000 boats registered. Until March 2005 Windermere was the only lake without a speed limit, but a 10 mph limit has now been imposed. Starting from Hatherwaite, enjoy a 90-minute circular cruise around the south of Lake Windermere with fantastic views across the wooded shoreline and distant Lakeland Fells. Split up your journey with a nostalgic trip on the Lakeside along with the Haverthwaite Steam Railway which offers beautiful views of the Levens Valley on this iconic historic railway.
Full of history, culture and friendly people, Liverpool is the ideal destination to discover and enjoy. A World Heritage site with a wonderful collection of museums, galleries, shopping, and dining, there really is something for everyone in this fantastic city. The coach will take you to the historic Albert Dock complex with a great range of visitor attractions including the iconic 'Beatles Story'. You can also take a ferry across the Mersey or visit the historic city center. Liverpool is there for you to enjoy as you want it.
