We can now distinguish between physical and human features and are able to describe them. As we travelled on our charabanc, following a coastal route, we were able to take in lots of Blackpool’s varied history too!
We marvelled at one of the UK’s most iconic buildings, the fabulous Blackpool Tower, who’s foundation stone was laid way back in the September of 1891.
We witnessed all three seafront piers, jutting out across the water, and were surprised to discover the North Pier was originally planned just for the Upper classes!
Heading towards Squires Gate, we made a stop at the worlds largest Mirror Ball, an instillation created by artist Michael Trainor. It has recently been completely re-mirrored with 47,000 new mirror tiles!
On the look out for some physical features, we were excited to espy the golden beach and marram grass topped sand dunes.
Before returning to school we spent a short while at the elegant grade II* registered, Stanley Park. Although we did not visit it’s fabulous Art Deco cafe, or the famous Cocker Tower, we thoroughly enjoyed some free time on the newly refurbished play area.
