Family Holidays in Blackpool and The Lake District

Blackpool is one of Britain's major and most popular seaside resorts with a very long sandy beach and has lots for fun and activities for all the family. The Lake District is stunningly beautiful and is great for sightseeing and exploring.

Blackpool has many attractions for the holiday maker - including the Pleasure Beach with its outdoor fast rides and rollercoasters, the Blackpool Tower that has undergone a major facelift and the Zoo.

The three piers offer daily entertainment and in the autumn, the fabulous illuminations are switched on, where the holiday maker can drive along The Golden Mile to see them.

There are also many eating places, amusement arcades, ballroom dancing and donkey rides.

The Lake District National Park is in Cumbria and the holiday maker has many choices of activities to choose from. There is walking, cycling, fishing and boating.

Also visitors can travel on steamers on Lake Windermere, can participate in golf, paragliding, rock climbing, horse riding, caving and pot holing.

Dove Cottage in Grasmere - where William Wordsworth used to live - and Hill Top in Sawrey, Hawkshead - where Beatrix Potter used to live - are well worth a visit.
