Blackpool Illuminations - less than a minutes walk from our hotel!3rd September - 7th November 2010

Blackpool Illuminations sees this seaside city of fun still buzzing with excitement and laughter long after other resorts have gone into winter hibernation.

At 10 kilometres long and using over one million bulbs the Blackpool Illuminations are an awesome spectacle.

The Blackpool Illuminations consist of almost every kind of light display you can imagine: lasers, neon, light bulbs, fibre optics, searchlights and floodlighting. In 2009 there were more than 500 scenic designs and features. There are set pieces made out of wood studded with light bulbs: the characters and objects portrayed seem to “move” by way of winking lights. Three-dimensional illuminated scenes are also popular. There are over 500 road features attached to lamp posts linked together with festoon lighting. Strings of lights along the structure of buildings pick out landmarks in luminous detail – you can always make out the Tower and the Pleasure Beach rides in this way.

Blackpool Illuminations TramSome of the hotels on the east side of the Promenade are floodlit in colour sequence. Even the trams on which you can tour the lights are illuminated and decorated with specific themes. There has been a Wild West tram, a Space Rocket and the Trawler.

Take a tram for a grandstand view – arguably the best way to see this electrical extravaganza.

During the Blackpool Illuminations Blackpool hosts a multitude of attractions, shows on the piers, theatres and the Pleasure Beach. Why not take advantage of the Blackpool entertainment and treat yourselves to a long weekend or mid week break.
