The Trip to see the Blackpool Illuminations is becoming a bit of a Natural Breaks tradition.  It was really good to see some new faces come along for the first time as well! 

The Blackpool Illuminations are a lot of fun and the weather was brilliant.  We travelled up with Hartley’s Coaches and our fantastic driver Charlie who takes us on all of our trips dropped us all outside of Coral Island and the adventure began! 

There is something for everyone, some people went for a walk along the pier, some to the arcades, others around the shops, some people went to get some souvenirs and some people went for fish and chips on the sea front! 

A few people hit Shenanigans to get on the karaoke and it was awesome!  Karen, Anthony and Jacqui all got up to sing and had us all up dancing – it was fab! 

We all met up back on the coach and travelled along to Cleveleys to the beginning of the lights as the sunset and our adventure began.


The lights are amazing and it is always magical travelling through them. Seeing the horses pulling the lit up carriages and the trams lit up like boats and trains – it is something that everyone should do each year! 

Jean said “I came a few years ago with you all when we stayed over, I’ve really enjoyed myself today and seeing everyone, it’s been great.”

 Good bye Blackpool we will see you again next year!
