Blackpool and the world famous illuminations are the destination for our late November excursion from London Euston and your local station.  Travel in First Class comfort in our InterCity carriages to the north west, hauled by one our Class 90 electric locomotives.  With over six hours in the seaside resort, there is plenty of time to visit the many attractions Blackpool and the Fylde coast has to offer.

Our journey will take us from London Euston and pick up stations along the West Coast Main Line to Nuneaton.  At Preston, we turn west to reach Blackpool North, just a few minutes walk from the promenade.  Take the opportunity to walk along the Promenade or take a ride along the coast on the famous Blackpool trams.  The wonderfully restored heritage trams supplement the modern fleet during the lights, including the amazing illuminated trams.  Or for a more exhilarating afternoon, visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach with a wide range of thrilling rides and spectacular shows to suit all ages.  And of course, a trip to Blackpool wouldn’t be complete without taking a visit 380 feet into the sky to the top of The Blackpool Tower, where you can look out into the Irish Sea and see the famous Promenade below.

The illuminations themselves are a sight to behold with over six miles along the seafront of the brightest light displays.  The beautiful Blackpool Tower is lit from top to bottom in LED lights as are all three of the historic piers.  As an alternative to riding the tramway, there’s something really magical about walking on foot through the illuminations.  Feel the air on your face and hear the noise of the crowd, arcades and attractions.  For a real seaside treat, enjoy fish and chips from one of the many cafes and restaurants, perhaps as you watch one of the free light shows from the Comedy Carpet, projected several times each day onto the buildings at the base of the Tower.  Blackpool has something to offer for everyone and for all ages!
