Join your comfortable coach at your convenient local pick up point this morning, and head to the 'Vegas of the North' - action packed Blackpool! On arrival enjoy time to settle in and perhaps take a stroll for a breath of sea air and walk down the prom, or jump on a tram for a great overview of the whole seafront. Make sure you have time for a drink or several in the bar (your amazing £1 bar gives you selected drinks between 6pm and 8pm every night!) to meet new friends before enjoying your first evening meal. Then sit back and enjoy the fabulous entertainment that Blackpool and your hotel is so famous for!
