The Lancashire Wine School

By |April 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

The Lancashire Wine School in Blackpool is something a little different. It isn't just for wine snobs who want to talk to each other about hints of hollyhock and slight undertones of lemongrass in their wine. It is for anyone who enjoys a glass of wine and would like to know more about how it's [...]

The Flying Handbag

By |April 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

The Flying Handbag is a gay bar in Blackpool that refuses to be defined by its target market. It welcomes people of all orientations and offers fun, adult revue entertainment to all. If you're secure in yourself, like a laugh and like to be entertained, this could be just the place. Located in the so-called [...]

The Glasform Studio

By |April 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

The Glasform Studio is a short distance outside of Blackpool, but we think it's well worth the trip. Considering you can get a bus there and most drivers will tell you when to get off, it's an afternoon out that we thoroughly recommend. The Glasform Studio is run by local glassblower John Ditchfield. He is [...]

The Central Pier Showbar is a hidden highlight of Blackpool seafront. Located within Central Pier, this is cabaret done very well indeed. While the subjects may be typical, the quality of the shows are top quality and will leave you wanting more. The Central Pier in Blackpool is a local highlight. One of three piers [...]

The rise and rise of last minute bookings

By |April 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

Traditionally, holidays or weekend breaks in Blackpool were booked months in advance. We had time to prepare rooms, schedule annual leave, training days and ordering and could predict with some accuracy our occupancy from one week to the next. Then came last minute booking and everything changed. That well known website that offers last minute [...]

Events and festivals happening in Blackpool in 2015

By |April 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

One of the many reasons we love Blackpool is because there is always something going on. From February onwards, the town is active, busy and a great place to live, work and play. We were asked by a guest last week about what music festivals and events were happening this year. We didn't know, so [...]

Comic Con coming to Blackpool this September

By |April 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

If you saw Darth Vader and some Storm Troopers in town last weekend, you weren't seeing things, they were really here. They appeared alongside several other movie characters at the Promenade’s Beach House to launch Blackpool Comic Con. Comic Con isn't just for sci-fi geeks or comic book lovers, it's for anyone with an active [...]

The fault in the stars continued…

By |April 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

You may remember last week we were discussing the hotel star rating system and how it is becoming less relevant to today's traveller. The conversation had been sparked by a guest who said they were now swayed more by travel reviews than stars. It both surprised us and didn't surprise us at the same time. [...]
