Blackpool Seafront Illuminations & Cabaret Nights
AU5CAPrLocated on the North-West coast of England, Blackpool is a large seaside resort on the Irish Sea, bursting with both character and atmosphere. With award-winning sandy beaches, the largest range of visitor attractions outside of London and year-round fun and excitement, Blackpool is quite rightly hailed as the seaside entertainment capital of the UK.
But if you've never been before, then you might not know what you are missing. This midweek break is the perfect opportunity to find out what all the fuss is about or, if you are going back again, to revisit your favourite haunts! Your visit will also coincide with the fabulous spectacle that is the Blackpool Illuminations. With six miles of traditional festoons, tableaux and interactive features along the Promenade, no wonder it’s commonly known as the greatest free light show on Earth!
Visit the historic Tower Ballroom or take a ride to the top of the Tower for magnificent views! Explore the famous piers, take a walk along the Promenade and sandy beaches, or get away from it all in Stanley Park. Blackpool is now home to the UK’s only surviving first generation tramway so, of course, no visit would be complete without a ride on the famous tram along the prom!
And if you want to be in the heart of the action, then there is only one place to stay in Blackpool and that is on the Promenade itself! The popular Lyndene Hotel is located right on the seafront with sweeping views across the Irish Sea. It is a short walk to the central and south piers and the Blackpool Tower and, as you'd expect from a Blackpool hotel, it is well known for its fabulous entertainment with up to four different acts each evening ranging from singers, comedians, and fantastic tribute acts.
You'll have plenty of time to explore Blackpool and we've also laid on an evening tour of the fabulous Illuminations, a visit to bustling Skipton market, plus an excursion to nearby Liverpool for you to enjoy and explore the fab city at your leisure!
An ideal choice for:
* Blackpool and seaside lovers of all ages

* Anyone who loves great entertainment and fun with everything taken care of

Traders arrive in the town centre and set up stalls along each side of the wide High Street, bringing with them everything from cheeses to scarves, local meat to arts & crafts, shoes & boots to Yorkshire made blankets.
