A great value weekend break to Blackpool to view the spectacular Illuminations & a scenic journey home via the Peak District and Derbyshire Dales.
At 10 km long and using over 1 million bulbs, the Blackpool Illuminations are an awesome spectacle. The Illuminations consist of every kind of light display you can imagine – lasers, neon, light bulbs, fibre optics, searchlights and floodlighting .
After a morning departure from the Essex area, we shall take you by coach to one of Britain’s favourite holiday resorts – Blackpool ! There will be free time to enjoy the many attractions the town has to offer and purchase an evening meal before you re-join the coach for the magical tour of the illuminations. We shall then make our way by coach to our 4* Hotel in nearby Preston for your overnight stay.
After a leisurely breakfast on Sunday morning, we shall make our way to the Peak District and Derybyshire Dales, stopping en route at Buxton, famed for its natural spring water and Georgian architecture. In addition to the town's magnificent architecture, there are also The Pavilion Gardens, 23 acres of award winning ornamental gardens including serpentine walkways, a lake and a miniature railway. Buxton has a range of independent boutique shops, craft and gift emporiums as well as the well known high street brand of shops.
We shall then make our way to the delightful Market town of Bakewell. With its attractive courtyards, independent shops, cafés and its location on the River Wye, it’s a popular town. Bakewell is best known for a confection made by mistake. In the 19th century a cook at the Rutland Arms was baking a jam tart but misunderstood the recipe and so Bakewell Pudding was created. Now almost every visitor to the town samples this culinary delight. The fine spire of All Saints Church looks down on the town, where there are some grand old houses, notably the Market Hall, The Old Town Hall and the Almshouses on South Church Street. The ancient five arched bridge is much painted by artists. We shall then make our way back to the Essex area where we shall arrive early evening.
