Our first family trip to Blackpool was a ‘roasting’ success, with southern Spain style temperatures being delivered over our weekend. The amazing circus display was simply magnificent. The sealife centre, thrilling, educational, interesting and exciting for parents and our two children alike. The walks along tbe south pier until gone 1030pm, summed up how holidaying on the uk coast can be enjoyed, particularly with near 30 degree heat!
Our hotel, smart, friendly, helpful and family orientated with a touch of class and great food, all within a stones throw of the tram and bus service that ran along the Promenade. Directly behind our hotel stood the Pleasure Beach. This, a mammoth selection of roller coaster rides for the brave and some others for the less thrill seeking, chilled riders and of course rides for children. Our two loved the car rides, the train that took us throughout the pleasure beach (a good distance I might add) as the area was huge to cover on foot.
All in all a surprising, entertaining, well stocked 3 day break, with superb weather, activities for all, lovely hotel (with great family rooms too for your children and adults, plenty of space for 4 separate area for kids bunk beds). Would we go again? Our children replied by saying they want 4 days next time! Well entertainment is guaranteed, weather, well someone else has that power I’m afraid….so in poetic homage to our weekend away here is a little ditty.
Brilliant sunshine won the day
Lazing about with my family, what more can I say
An amazing time was had by all
Circus stupendous we certainly had a ball
Kicking our heels we weren’t for sure
Pleasure beach in the sun- could we ask for more?
Organised views with so much to see
Oh how we were tempted, oh how we were teased
Leaving ‘the pool’ our children wanted to stay
They loved every minute, of every single day
Only the call of those darn 2p machines
Would allow us to bribe them, to eat up their greens!
Evening would come and we’d be ready for bed
Remembering a fun filled enjoyable time – enough said!
