As it was my birthday on Monday, me and my boyfriend decided to have a couple of nights away together and we decided to go to Blackpool Sunday-Tuesday.
We stayed in The Lumada Hotel http://www.thelumada.co.uk which was reasonably priced and cost us £100 for the 2 of us for the 2 nights, which worked out at £25pppn this included breakfast. I would stay here again as it was central to everything we needed, hosts were lovely and went out of their way to help you.
On our first night we enjoyed a stroll along the illuminations, this is something I haven’t done for a number of years, its just so magical and takes me back to my childhood, the illuminations last for 6.2 miles (10 km) so we didn’t manage to see them all however we could have done If we had went on a tram.
On Monday (My Birthday) we spent the day at the Pleasure Beach,i really enjoyed this and we went on the majority of the rides again this took me back to my childhood as some of the rides have remained the same but there have been new ones added which I had never been on before. I enjoyed the whole day and the experience and would love to visit again. We booked our wristbands online a week before visiting, these cost us £25 each whereas on the day if we hadn’t of booked these would have cost us £39 each. The wristbands were value for money as it allowed us to go on the rides all day long and as many times as we wanted.
I really enjoyed my few days away in Blackpool and me and my boyfriend have already said we would love to visit again as there is so much that we haven’t seen or done, we would love to visit the Blackpool Tower ,Madame Tussauds,Sealife Centre and the Blackpool Tower Dungeons.
Here are some photos from our few days away
