Blackpool for The Famous Illuminations

Staying at the Imperial Hotel

2 DAYS | 4th October 2020

The North’s most treasured holiday resort, Blackpool’s brightest time of the year is Autumn, when the streets themselves come alive with the world famous Illuminations. Renowned for its friendly people, fun packed Golden Mile, its three piers, Pleasure Beach, iconic Tower, seafront, trams as wells as the lively entertainment and shows, there is something for first time visitors and seasoned patrons alike.

Situated on the North Promenade, the Imperial Hotel is a Blackpool landmark that has welcomed a host of royalty, politicians, statesmen and stars of both stage and screen through its doors. A grand 19th century hotel styled in the opulence and glamour Blackpool’s Victorian heyday, it is now a traditional hotel with all the comforts of modern life. The restaurant has wonderful sea views, there is a relaxing lounge and bar as well as leisure facilities that include an indoor swimming pool, sauna, hot tub, steam room and gym. All the bedrooms are en suite, have a TV, as well as tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift.

We depart Macclesfield in the morning calling at Brockhole Nature Reserve for morning coffee in their signature floating Visitors Centre. We then continue on to Cleveleys for lunch. Mid-afternoon we make our way to the hotel, with enough time for a dip in the pool. After an early dinner we board the coach for our tour through the fabulous lights. Beginning as a small scale decoration scheme with a mere 10,000 lights to mark Blackpool’s first royal visit in 1912, it has now become an iconic British institution, with over one million lights bathing the promenade in a sea of colour.

With a free morning in Blackpool, why not take a stroll along the promenade or a browse around the shops? Or perhaps take a ride on the Big One roller coaster or a tram ride up to Squires Gate? At lunchtime we make our way to Lytham for lunch, where there are many delicious options to choose from including the traditional seaside fare of fish and chips in the Seafarer’s restaurant. Mid-afternoon we head for home calling at Dobbies Garden Centre for a browse and an afternoon cuppa. We aim to arrive in the Macclesfield area early evening.
