Ormskirk Market is one of the oldest and most traditional outdoor street markets in the UK, dating back to 1286 when King Edward I granted a Royal Charter here. Ever since then, the pedestrianised streets around the famous Clock Tower have hosted this popular market which offers around 100 different stalls. As well as a great range of food stalls showcasing Lancashire’s local food such as homemade pies and fine cheeses, there is also a selection of clothing, stationery, plants and more.
Blackpool IlluminationsBlackpool Illuminations
Every year for a period of 66 days, the Lancashire seaside resort of Blackpool comes alive with the biggest lights festival in the UK, the world-famous Blackpool Illuminations.
Featuring over a million bulbs, the display mixes traditional motifs with contemporary displays, to create a dazzling entertainment spectacle that stretches for six miles from Starr Gate to Bispham.
During the Illuminations, hotels in Blackpool get booked up quickly. Booking a package with National Holidays takes the hassle out of searching for a hotel and allows you to enjoy the delights of the illuminations without having to worry about avoiding traffic and the late journey home.
