We visited the Tower where we experienced the 4D cinema, all ducking and diving as the screen jumped out at us, which was an awesome experience. We stood on the glass floor and looked down at the folk far below us, and several of us then went up further on a spiral staircase from where the views were fantastic.
We saw the illuminations, which were fantastic! We had a go on the amusements on the Blackpool front and one day we went bowling. We visited the circus, where everyone enjoyed chuckling at the clowns and was amazed by the daredevil trapeze artists. We also went to the Tower Dungeons, where we were scared by spooks and witches – a great deal of hilarity ensuing.
A highlight for us all was of course going to the Blackpool Tower Ballroom where we danced and enjoyed afternoon tea and cakes. We also found time to visit the Sea Life Centre, where we held star fish and gazed in awe at the great variety of fish, and we went to Madame Tussaud’s where everyone enjoyed all the models, many of which were very life-like. Another great experience was taking a horse and carriage ride, especially as it was Cinderella’s carriage.
We ate out in evenings at traditional country pubs and one evening tried something a bit different at an Indian restaurant where we all sampled various dishes. We certainly had a fun-packed week!
