Leaving the local area in the early morning, we'll travel to our hotel. En route, we'll stop for lunch and enjoy a short tour of 'Last of the Summer Wine' country, taking in the little Pennine town of Holmfirth. Look out for Sid's Cafe and Nora Batty's steps, before we continue to our hotel in time for dinner.
This morning we'll head to Blackpool. Spend the day exploring at leisure before, as evening falls, we board the coach for our Illuminations Drive. Over one million bulbs make up the fascinating array of feature displays that glitter along the seafront.
Today we're off to popular Buxton, travelling through the stunning scenery of the Peak District. Visit the historic Crescent, browse the town's excellent shops or relax in the beautiful Pavilion Gardens.
We'll journey home in the early afternoon, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening, after what promises to have been a marvellous weekend away.
Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach).
Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately ten days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.
Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair or electric scooter, please let us know as soon as possible so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
