Having researched different ideas of achieving a cost-effective way of visiting the Blackpool Lights Tower Ballroom Tea Dance.
I have selected a national company and their prices just cannot be beaten by other companies or against organising the trip as an independent group involving hiring coach, coach driver, hotel and entertainment etc.

A visit to Blackpool
A 75 min Blackpool Illuminations Drive on a traditional Heritage Tram
Afternoon Tea Dance in the Blackpool Tower Ballroom
Visit to Buxton and Bakewell

Day One: Coach travel to Blackpool
Leaving your local area in the early morning, we’ll travel to your hotel in Bolton staying at either Mercure Hotel or Bredbury Hall Hotel (appx 1 hr from Blackpool). En route, we’ll stop for lunch (payable locally), before continuing to our hotel in time for dinner.
Day Two: Blackpool Illuminations tour
We’ll head to Blackpool, where you’ll have time to enjoy the many attractions and diversions that surround the ‘Golden Mile’.
In the afternoon: join us for a tea dance at Blackpool Tower’s iconic Ballroom. First opened to the public in 1894, the Ballroom is a stunning location in which to relax over afternoon tea. Take to the floor, or simply watch the world waltz by, and enjoy sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, a choice of cake and either tea or coffee.
As evening falls,: we’ll board a traditional Heritage tram for a 75-minute journey to discover the famous Blackpool Illuminations. This spectacular light show started in 1912 as a display of some 10,000 lights, and marked the first Royal visit to Blackpool. Today, it features over one million lightbulbs and showcases over 500 scenic designs that glitter along the seafront.
Day Three: Visits to Buxton and Bakewell
We’ll be heading into the stunning scenery of the Peak District, as we begin our journey home.
En route, we’ll stop in Buxton, where you can visit the historic Crescent, peruse the town’s excellent shops or relax in the beautiful Pavilion Gardens. Later in the afternoon, we’ll also visit Bakewell, home of the famous pudding. Sample the local delicacy in one of the many cafes, before taking a stroll across the ancient, five-arched bridge, or having a browse around the town’s eclectic shops.
We should arrive back in the local area by mid-to-late evening, after a marvellous weekend away.
