Hotels Perfect For A Family Holiday by Carey Brand
is a medium-sized seaside town in northwestern England. It's not the first
city people think of, when they think of England. That's usually London
or Cambridge. With about 140,000 people, Blackpool is comparatively tiny.
But as summer draws to a close, and autumn creeps upon England, Blackpool
hotels fill with tourists. They come to see the Blackpool Illuminations,
Blackpool's main attraction since 1879.
|The Illuminations, which
were originally called "artificial sunshine" change continuously. This
makes an beautiful spectacle and allows each year's festival to stand out
from all others. Lately the focus has been on energy efficiency and environmental
friendliness. Numerous other events are incorporated into the celebration
and there is entertainment for all ages.
Blackpool hotels are often
booked solid during the town's peak season (late August to early November),
so you should plan far ahead if you want to reserve hotel rooms during
that period, especially if you plan on staying in one of the Blackpool
hotels in Blackpool span a wide variety of accommodations. From five-star
short-stay rental apartments and similarly-equipped full-service luxury
hotels to affordable accommodations to suit even the most budget-conscious
visitor. Family-run bed-and-breakfast places round up the homiest of Blackpool
But as man does not live
by bread alone, Blackpool is more than just the Illuminations. It is home
to many first rate restaurants and boasts one of England's most varied
and longest theater seasons: from circus performances and illusionists
to opera and West End musicals, not to mention it being a stop on many
major musicians' tours. Blackpool also boasts a water park, an amusement
park, a zoo, and some of the highest outdoor climbing walls in the United
Kingdom. And that's not even mentioning the expanse of sandy beaches the
city has to offer.
It's important to remember
that if you are planning to visit Blackpool during the Illuminations and
want to stay in the city, you need to book your lodgings early if you want
to get a good price and have some choice in where you stay. And don't forget
to experience some of the other treats that Blackpool offers. You'll have
a memorable holiday.
Located on the northwestern
coast of England, Blackpool is a relatively small seaside town with a population
of about 140,000. At the town's busiest, from late August to early November
during the Illuminations, Blackpool hotels are often booked solid, so if
you plan on making hotel reservations for that period, particularly in
blackpool family hotel, it's best to do so earlier rather than later. A
wide variety of rooms are offered by hotels in Blackpool. You can choose
from a five star rental apartment or a full service luxury hotel
