En-Route to Blackpool Illuminations

Blackpool Illumination 2021 is a little different this year. The annual Illuminations display has been extended by two months to provide an invaluable boost to the resort’s tourism season after COVID-19.

The sort of spectacle that everyone should see at least once, Blackpool Illuminations enthral millions of visitors every year. The greatest free light show on earth has been a major part of Blackpool’s attraction since 1879 when they were described as ‘Artificial Sunshine’

Look out for next years 2022 Illuminations trip – A great day out between Christmas and New Year!
