What better way to get into the festive spirit than to enjoy a day trip to Blackpool with time for Christmas shopping in the morning, followed by a relaxing afternoon in the ever popular Elgin Hotel.
We start our day Christmas shopping in the heart of Blackpool where you’ll find Houndshill Shopping Centre, home to over 65 retailers – including popular stores such as Debenhams, H&M, New Look, Footasylum, Peacocks, Jack Jones and River Island. If you’re looking for something a little different try The Regent, it’s an antiques, vintage, craft and retro emporium spanning 3 floors in an old 1920’s cinema. With over 50 amazing stalls and a vintage tearoom on the first floor, you’ll find something for everyone.
When the shopping is done we move on to The Elgin Hotel to enjoy a four-course traditional Christmas lunch, you’ll be entertained with cabaret and bingo and finish off with tea or coffee and mince pies. You never know Santa may pay a visit and have a little surprise for everyone!
