This must be the best known and liveliest seaside resort of them all. The Pleasure Beach, the clanking trams, celebrated theatres, the iconic Blackpool Tower and at this time of year the fabulous illuminations. Started in 1879 this is claimed as the ‘Greatest free Light Show in the world’ stretching over 6 miles and containing over 1 million bulbs. Our great value 5 day break offers all this and more, a tour of the beautiful Lake District with a cruise, an afternoon at the fabulous Tower Ballroom and a visit to Samlesbury Hall.
The 4 star Imperial is a grand Victorian building located a few minutes from the beach and overlooks Blackpool’s North Pier. It boasts comprehensive facilities including an indoor pool, an elegant bar, a restaurant and plenty of lounge areas.
