If you want to venture a little further you can catch a tram to Fleetwood in half an hour where you can enjoy this traditional Victorian seaside resort.

We’ll then enjoy free time to explore delightful Bowness, situated on the shores of Lake Windermere and with plenty of fantastic attractions and things to do to be found here. We also visit Grasmere, home to William Wordsworth for over 14 years, who called it, “the loveliest spot that man hath ever found."
Half Day: Fleetwood
Over looking Morecambe Bay, with water surrounding the town on three sides, Fleetwood has been a prominent tourist destination of the North West since the late Victorian era. A much quieter and more laid back resort than Blackpool, a very pleasant way of spending the afternoon is strolling around the seaside park, The Mount, which has a beautiful Edwardian Pavilion. From The Mount and anywhere along Fleetwood Promenade are uninterrupted views of Morecambe Bay and the Lakes, Bill Bryson called the view, "easily one of the most beautiful in the world, with unforgettable views across to the green and blue Lakeland hills."
Included Afternoon Tea at Blackpool Tower Ballroom
Step back in time and take afternoon tea in the splendid surroundings of Blackpool Tower Ballroom. Take to the famous dancefloor or simply relax and enjoy the elegant atmosphere. Dating back to 1894, the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom, with its uniquely sprung dancefloor and lavish decoration remains a destination for dance fans across the world!
