... for us to go and watch the World Cup final tomorrow. We have found the people here to be super friendly and chatty.
We are trying very hard to stay awake right now. We've been up for over 26 hours but want to try and get ourselves adjusted to the time change ASAP.
Tomorrow we are visiting Anfield stadium. Soooo excited! ❤️ Liverpool FC
... by 11.. so I knew I could get some short shut eye. We actually left on time and then caught the train to head to Clitheroe. Figuring out the trains was a whole new world. But we made it to our destination. So we have that going for us. Which is nice (miss you Nick) We got off the train in Clitheroe and headed down the streets I'm finally familiar with. Picked up the keys to my Grandpas vacant home and went inside. As ...
... paths in a similar direction to the day before. We didn't make the 55km goal for the day only hitting 40km as I wasn't feeling great in the afternoon and we decided to turn around rather than get stuck in the middle of nowhere! We made a good decision as I was still not feeling well enough the next day however after a day off from cycling and a train ride to Liverpool I am ready to get back on the bike :) Rodney, however, did ride Manchester ...
... 300 times before they made it big -the school that Paul and George attended together, which was right next to the university of arts that John was attending at the time. After the tour we had planned to visit the World Museum and the Maritime Museum but unfortunately there was a strike on and so they were all closed. Instead after a relaxed lunch we walked up to the Anglican cathedral. We made our way through the slightly creepy park/ cemetery that surrounding ...
Today we continued on from York to the home of the Beatles, Liverpool! Before making our way to the York train station we walked down the river and saw Clifford's tower and made some friends with the local Canadian geese. This tower was the setting of a very sad story. A group of Jews were chased by a mob and took shelter here until deciding to take their own lives instead of renouncing their faith. Once at the York train station we visited ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Savoy Hotel Blackpool
booked a last minute short break for myself husband and two daughters after a six hour drive we arrived at the hotel to be told that our room would not be ready for another two hours we came back at three and was very rudely passed a key from receptionist without being told room number or directions to room lift wasnt working so had to walk up stairs. On entering the room we were very disappionted to say the least we had booked a family room what we had was a double room and a cupboard in which the folding bed they had provided didnt even fold out properly the walls were damp the windows filthy and the room was freezing because the window was jammed open the windowsills were covered in brickwork that had been falling in from outside and the paper was falling of the wall i wouldnt have even washed my dog in the bath i immediately got on the phone to the booking agent and told her to get us out of there we sat for a hour in the car waiting for her to arrange this because i wouldnt have let my kids even sit on the beds for that long and as i handeed my key back to reception at least six other families were complaining about various things also were we reloccated to the norbreck castle hotel which i would recommend but steer well clear of the savoy they need to seriously shut down and get sorted out before they are closed down for good.
We booked this hotel for its name and because we wanted to be out of the trad bit of Blackpool. Already had t shirts etc. The North Shore sounded a bit posh and as we were going to the Womens' Golf Open at Royal Lytham St Annes..... fitting.
£20.00 a night - can't complain
I booked this hotel for a cheap night out in Blackpool, it cost £20.00 per person per night with Breakfast in the morning.
Contrary to the other reviews, our room was clean, window's opened and the shower was old but pretty -- powerful!
Breakfast was good, eat as much as you like (as long as your hangover is not to bad!), no black pudding though!
For £20.00 a night you can't go wrong!
Vile, vile, vile. This hotel is one of the worst ones I have EVER stayed in. Usually stay in the Hilton but it was fully booked as most of the other hotels were also. I can see now why this one wasnt! When we got there the receptionist was so ignorant and the rooms still were not ready. We had to leave our luggage in a dindgy back room and she proceeded to tell us that they could not be responsible for our bags. Seeing as our rooms were not going to be ready for another 2 hours (4pm!) we had to leave them otherwise we would have missed the day. The food was garbage and you wouldnt have fed it to the dog, the whole hotel was dirty and run down, you could hear EVRY noise from the rroms either side of you/under you/above you and it at 5.30am one morning sounded like the marathom was coming through the hotel. You cant roll over in bed for fear that you are going to wake the whole floor up. My only comment to them was to knock it down and start again which me and my 2 friends whole heartedly agreed with. The only thing which was OK were the beds in the family room, we had 2 doubles and 1 single and they were very comfy with a lovely fleece over the top. Overall, very very dissapointing and I would not recommend this squalour to anybody. ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Very good hotel
Prior to staying at the savoy i read the reviews and went very concerned. But all I can say is we must have fallen lucky as our 3rd floor bedroom was above average and very clean. The breakfast was ok so all in all we had a decent stay.
We stayed at the Savoy Hotel Blackpool on the 17th of June 2006 for a friends 40th birthday. The hotel was a little run down but was ok in the reception and bar. We were given our keys when we arrived when we found our rooms we were in for a surprise, the widows looked like they hadn't been cleaned since 1901, the windows didn't open, the window sills were covered in dust and insects, the wardrobe smelt like urine, the wallpaper was hanging off the walls all in all disguisting!! If I would recommend a hotel I certainly would NOT recommend Savoy Hotel, you will be better getting a small b&b which from past experience are small but clean.
six of us booked with this hotel for a one nite stay .we were allocated three rooms, all rooms were dirty and looked like they hadnt seen a cleaner in months. the windows were very dirty and didnt look like they had ever seen a window cleaner.in one of the rooms the ceiling was all hanging down in the bathroom. the hotel is badly in need of new decoration paper falling of everywhere.we reported our room being dirty ,the young lady at reception said she would get it sorted .on our return in the evening the room was still the same full of dust. it was like they didnt care and were used to people complaining. we would not reccomend this hotel to anybody .
Well it was an interesting one...firstly, let's start with the good-
Worse than Fawlty Towers
Stayed for one night. Left keys with reception and when we returned at 11.00 our property had been stolen laptop, camera PSP, without a sign of forced entry. Shoddy service and no customer care to speak off. Rooms are filthy and decor might have been ok in 1950 but not in 2006. Advice is stay well clear. If you do stay leave your belonging in the car where they are safer.
