Why should a little thing like the end of the summer spoil Blackpool’s fun? As soon as the autumn leaves appear, so do the Illuminations, and the six miles of lights strung along the promenade breathe fresh life into an already very lively town. The colourful, cartoon-like displays are split into different themes, with old favourites like nursery rhyme tableaux mingling with modern street art and celebrity caricatures.
If you’re thinking of seeing this spectacular festival of lights for yourself, why not book into one of the Premier Inn hotels in Blackpool? That way you’re guaranteed a good night’s sleep after your visit to the town’s dreamy wonderland.
Whether you stroll along the promenade, gazing at the lights with a bag of chips in your hand, or make like the locals and drive through them in a car (with a bag of chips on your lap), you’re in for a treat.
