Now I’m MEGA late with this post and my boyfriend has been bugging me to put it up for weeks, so here it is in all its seaside glory!
A couple of weeks ago myself and G (my boyfriend) decided to go to see Blackpool’s famous lights! They were due to be switched off on the 5th of November so we needed to get up there quick to see them.
I always thought Blackpool lights were on over Christmas but NOPE, they run from late August to early November every year. Every year the lights are switched on by a celebrity and this year it was Alfie Boe, who is an English opera singer and actor. He was also born in the seaside town and grew up in nearby Fleetwood.
As we only live around an hour away from Blackpool we decided to set off around half 3 to get there for tea-time.
One thing I noticed when driving through Blackpool was that despite it being Halloween there were NO kids out trick or treating. Honestly, we saw NONE! I’m so glad I grew up without social media in my life and all this technology we have now…
We arrived in Blackpool at 5pm and headed straight for something to eat.
We originally wanted to go to Bella Italia but it was all booked up, it was Halloween night after all…
We walked down towards the tower to see what we could find and came across the Harry Ramsden’s there! Perfect, can’t beat a bit of fish and chips at the seaside can you?!
It was mega busy in there and we had about a 20 minute wait to be seated but everything was clean and the staff were nice and friendly.
The chips weren’t that great but the fish was beauuuuuutiful and I actually quite enjoyed it!
After our tea, we went out for a little walk to see the lights but it started to rain so we went back to the car and drove through the lights instead. Next time if we ever come back to see the lights in the future we’ll definitely come earlier in the year, it was bloody feeezing!
It was quite a busy night in Blackpool and I think it must’ve took us at least 45 minutes to get through the whole light display! Even though it was cold and rainy, I still enjoyed being with my G and spending precious time together making memories.
