Join us for a weekend break in Blackpool, staying at the Northern Star hotel for Friday and Saturday night.
On Friday evening there will be the opportunity to have a few drinks in the hotel bar and have a catch up with friends old and new, there will also be an optional OutdoorLads Pub Quiz. Light meals will be available to save the hassle of going out.

The B&B is around the corner from Blackpool North railway station. Long stay parking is available at Banks Street car park, FY1 2DT, a three minute walk away.

Double, twin and single rooms are available. They have one triple room which can be booked by phoning the hotel directly as it doesn’t appear online. Feel free to use the comments section below to organise any room sharing.

Rooms can be booked at:

Once this venue is full, additional nearby accomodation can be booked at

Alternatively, luxury rooms can be booked at the Art B&B

For those booking a weekend break we will be walking from the Northern Star to the Sandcastle on Saturday morning, probably getting the tram back with an optional stop at a chip shop before getting ready for a big blackpool night out.

The hotel bar will be open for pre-night out drinks on the Saturday evening before we set off to Funny Girls at 7pm (the hotel overlooks Funny Girls).

On Sunday there should be the chance for a short walk to the prom and an opportunity for a coffee shop stop before heading home.
