Join us for this wonderful tour of the famous Blackpool Illuminations, which every autumn transform a five-mile stretch of the promenade into a breath-taking blaze of colourful lights in spectacular designs. We have also included a Pendle Witch Tour with a fascinating guide, Samlesbury Hall, and our hotel provides entertainment every evening.
Day 1 Leaving the local area early in the morning, we travel north to St Annes-on-Sea making suitable refreshment stops along the way and arriving in time for dinner.
Day 2 Take the day to explore Blackpool, where we have included entry to Blackpool Tower Ballroom and the Circus. After an earlier dinner this evening, we take a leisurely guided coach tour through the amazing illuminations for which the town is so rightly famous.
Day 3 We visit Samlesbury Hall, built in 1325, steeped in fascinating history and still with its original black and white exterior. From Tudor priest holes to Victorian kitchens, our guided tour takes us from the 14th to the 20th Century. We have an included light lunch before returning to our hotel mid-afternoon.
Day 4 Today we travel up the Ribble Valley to Clitheroe, where we meet our award-winning guide Simon Entwistle. Simon will take us for a tour through Pendle Witch Country including Barrowford, Worston and Chipping enthralling us with stories of the trials and local legend.
Day 5 Departing after breakfast, we head south and arrive in the local area late afternoon. We will make stops for refreshments along the way.
