Let your hair down in Blackpool with Turkey & Tinsel festivities, The Illuminations and a £1 bar nightly!

Enjoy a wonderful five day festive break to Blackpool, Britain’s favourite seaside resort. There is plenty to do for all ages on a traditional British seaside holiday to this iconic destination at any time of the year. Blackpool is the stuff of old English postcards, known for its fun and humour and offers something for everyone, from its long, flat promenade and Blackpool Tower, to the Illuminations that adorn the promenade every year. It offers a mix of thrills, fun, laughs, and relaxation. What more could you want?

If you love Blackpool, you love Blackpool! And if you've never been before, then you might not know what you are missing? Quite rightly hailed as the seaside entertainment capital of the UK, this super value midweek break is the perfect opportunity to revisit some favourite haunts - or find out what all the fuss is about. As an added bonus, your visit will 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!

You'll be staying in the popular Georgian Hollies, close to the Blackpool Tower and Winter Gardens and - as you'd expect from a Blackpool hotel - it is well known for its fabulous evening entertainment and we've even thrown in a Turkey & Tinsel theme plus a £1 bar to make absolutely sure you have a great time!

Our fabulous festive break also includes excursions to the wonderful city of Liverpool where their popular Christmas Market will be in full swing, and the world famous Bury Market which is home to dozens of stalls offering amazing bargains and fresh local produce. There is so much to celebrate on this wonderful pre-Christmas tour!

An ideal choice for:
* Value-conscious Christmas fans.
* Seaside lovers who like an action packed resort!
* Couples and friends who fancy a fun-filled pre-Christmas break

Bury Market

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationVisit the Lancashire town of Bury for the world famous Bury Market, one of the oldest and most-popular shopping destinations in the UK. For over 500 years (amazingly established in 1444), Bury has had a market, and today it is a unique shopping experience and the biggest in the North West. Oozing charisma and atmosphere, the ambience and layout offers visitors the opportunity to seek out and visit every stall. The range of products and facilities is second to none with around 370 stalls selling everything from meat and groceries to clothing and jewellery. It's a unique shopping experience and a great day out where you can buy anything and everything in one location. For those that just love to shop there are even more shops in the neighbouring Mill Gate Shopping Centre and also in the Rock Shopping Centre, which is just a short walk away. After all that shopping you will have earned a well-deserved break. Stop off at one of the many delicatessens, cafes and takeaways, and enjoy a local treat like a Manchester Tart or Eccles Cake, whilst no trip to Bury Market would be complete without sampling the local delicacy, Bury Black pudding!


INCLUDED Visitor DestinationFull of history, culture and friendly people, Liverpool is the ideal destination to discover and enjoy.

Liverpool Christmas Market

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationFull of history, culture and friendly people, Liverpool is the ideal destination to discover and enjoy. With a wonderful collection of museums, galleries, shopping and dining, there really is something for everyone in this fantastic city. Head to St George's Plateau to experience more than 40 rustic Christmas stalls selling food and drink from across the world. There will also be local arts, Christmas decorations and candles on sale, that will make wonderful gifts. Or take a ride on the Ferris Wheel offering great views above the festoons of lights and other vintage fairground rides for those who are still a kid at heart. Don't forget the opportunity to take your own ride on a ferry cross the Mersey! 

Blackpool Illuminations

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationThe world-famous Illuminations need little introduction. There are six miles of traditional festoons and tableaux along the Promenade - no wonder it’s commonly known as the greatest free light show on Earth! The first set of Illuminations were introduced when Blackpool Council devoted the sum of £5000 to experiment with the concept of electric street lighting, starting off with eight arc lamps on 60ft poles along the seafront. This installation brought visitors to the seaside resort to see this new electricity at work; the start of the annual influx of tourists that we see today. However, unlike today’s modern day technology with the Illuminations, the lamps used to go out as the tide came in due to water leaking into the cast iron wiring pipes! Each year of the light display is different, with new and favourite lights being maintained and developed. Many famous names have travelled to Blackpool over the years to commemorate the beginning of the annual Illuminations. Celebrities who have pulled the Switch-On lever include comedian Ken Dodd, actor David Tennant, Hollywood film director Tim Burton, actress Lucy Fallon, and even some unlikely names such as Red Rum the race horse and even Kermit the Frog!
