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.
The lovely seaside town of Fleetwood is nestled on the tip of the Flyde Coast and offers plenty to do. Enjoy a stroll along the esplanade, go paddling at Marine Beach, admire the bobbing boats in the harbour and don’t forget to try some award-winning fish and chips! On a clear day, Mount Pavilion boasts views of the Lake District and Morecambe Bay and is the perfect spot to soak up the beauty of the North West coastline.
To learn more about the history of the town, head to Fleetwood Museum, housed in a historic Grade II listed building designed by Victorian architect Decimus Burton. Or if you’re lucky enough to visit on market day, be sure to pick up a bargain or two from the 150 indoor and outdoor stalls!
Fancy a trip to Manchester? You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping! The Arndale Centre has all your favourite high street brands plus a food court with plenty of choice for lunch. You’ll find designer boutiques in King Street, plus a Selfridges and Harvey Nichols in Exchange Square. Deansgate, the main street through Manchester, is packed with cafes and restaurants covering all different types of cuisine and just outside the city there’s also the Trafford Centre – a huge shopping complex of high street shops – get ready to shop ‘til you drop!
Salford Quays is also well worth a closer look. Once the site of the Manchester docks, it was upgraded as part of a massive urban regeneration project, resulting in the contemporary waterfront we see today and is home to some fabulous attractions including The Lowry theatre, the Imperial War Museum North and the northern hub for both ITV and the BBC. The Quayside outlet mall provides more retail therapy opportunities but be sure to put your feet up in the myriad bars and restaurants – perfect for people watching along the glistening waterfront!
