Steam into the festive season through Lancashire’s very own winter wonderland. Wind past Christmas card villages and fairy light festooned stations whilst tucking into a traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings! Sit back and relax as you enjoy this Pullman-style dining with distinction experience. We also get to see the annual Blackpool Illuminations.
Your comfort is our priority and all travel arrangements have been made with this in mind. Comfort stops will always be planned en route for lunch/refreshments. We will arrive at the hotel in the late afternoon, where your luggage will be taken to your room (unless otherwise specified) and you will have plenty of time to freshen up before the evening meal. Return travel will follow a similar schedule.
Your Main Hotel: Hampton by Hilton, Blackburn
On the border of Hyndburn and Blackburn is the Hampton by Hilton Blackburn. Frontier Retail Park is a five-minute walk from our door.

The colourful, laid-back rooms provide flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, mini-fridges and kettles. The hotel also has an on-site restaurant, bar and fitness centre.
