Excursions as described.
Day 1 Monday
We leave in the morning for 4 nights
dinner, bed & breakfast at Ashton Park Hotel, Lytham St
Annes. There is entertainment in the hotel most evenings.
Day 2 Tuesday
There’s a lot to see round the town
this morning, then there will be a local tour. Blackpool
is 3 miles away and we drive the entire length of the
promenade and up the Fylde coast to Fleetwood. Back
into Blackpool for some sightseeing time before
returning to the hotel.
Day 3 Wednesday
We go in search of witches and
bargains today. There are interesting villages along the
Ribble Valley, then near Clitheroe are the ones
associated with the so called ‘Witches of Pendle’ – tried
and found guilty in the 17th century. Continue to
Oswaldtwistle Mills, a remarkable development with
over 80,000sq.ft. of retail shopping, cafes, restaurants, a
sweet factory, craft workshops, the biggest garden
centre in Lancashire, and a great deal more.
Day 4 Thursday
Morning tour to Southport, a ‘floral’
resort on the other side of the Ribble estuary. Southport
retains an air of Victorian elegance and has particular
regard for maintaining its parks and gardens in top
condition. Lord Street too, where the shops and stores
are considered the best in the north of England.
Day 5 Friday
Home via the Peak District, with a
lunchtime stop in Buxton.
With a long promenade, many acres of well-tended gardens, a championship golf course, good shops, boutiques and restaurants in an immaculate town centre, Lytham St Annes is delightful. Blackpools bright lights are only 3 miles away and we visit it on a Fylde Coast tour. There are also drives to the Ribble Valley for Lancashires Witch Country and to Southport.
