... 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
I'm struggling with sleep. I always do when I travel to England but normally I can sleep it off by ruining a day or two. But this time I can't really do that. Being constantly on the move and having to carry a backpack while exhausted is not as easy. Plus Dan has already made me run with my backpack on. What an awful moment! Not to mention my shoelace came undone. So obviously I was going to fall to my death. (Only ...
... 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 ...
... to the top of the charts. The previous drummer was kicked out by John Paul and George - strawberry fields (John was taken to this park often as a child by his aunt and uncle, it was originally a orphanage) - the church where John and Paul met (John was performing at a local music festival and a mutual friend introduced them, John responded by asking Paul to play guitar, Paul passed his impromptu audition and history was made) - the Cavern Club where they ...
... got their start at the legendary cavern club. After a take away lunch, We booked it down to the wharf and caught the last open top bus tour and went around the city to get our bearings and learn some local history while eating our food. After the bus we came back to the hostel for a nap, waking up in time to watch the holland vs argentine game in the hostel. Not quite as exciting as the last, the game was 0-0 with 30min extra time before ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Bedford Hotel Blackpool
My mother in law and myself went to stay at The Bedford as we visit the hair show every year, Previously we have stayed in The Metropole and The Claremont. Whilst visiting Blackpool earlier in the year i passed The Bedford and thought it looked quite pleasant so when looking for a hotel this year i thought we would give The Bedford a try- I am so glad we did !
Took my dad who is 94 the hotel staff could not have been more helpful the food was very good the room and bathroom were nice and clean the service at meal times was excelent. We had a great time and would definitly go back to the Bedford .Thanks to all the staff for a wonderful holiday.
Thank you once again
having stayed in the big blue last year we decided to stay somewhere that provided evening meals in the overall price. we choose the bedford after having looked on its website and found that it had a free carpark and a lift to all floors.also it had a swimming pool that could be used by my 16year old daughter and 13year old niece, which in the end didnt really matter as they only used it once and spent any time in the hotel playing pool with other kids.
Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Bedford Hotel, Blackpool. I went with my partner, this is the third time we have stayed at this hotel and we cannot fault it really!
We booked for the weekend in a party of 8, we found all the staff to be helpful and pleasant, the food was good, the room was adequate for our needs as we didnt spend to much time in it . The hotel was clean and tidy it was in a good position away from the rowdy night life and a nice walk to the pier. Easy reach for the trams, bus stops. We would book again no problem.
Thank you once again
Booked in August on the internet for me my huband and 4 year old grandson asked for bed and breakfast and seaview.. Arrived and were given the keys to a groundfloor room back of hotel next to lift ,insisted on the seaview and were given only available room on top floor but our grandson had to have a rollout mattress on the floor. Turned up for breakfast and were greeted by a lovely lady who said to sit where we had for the previous night, we explained we were bed and breakfast only so we had to sit outside until we were given a table, on the understanding that we didn't take too long! The poor woman said reception just kept booking in people with no regard to the space available, in the end she managed to get a couple to come down for breakfast late so that we could eat. On the one occcasion we booked an evening meal it was either wait an hour or go out into the gale with our grandchild which we did, never again!! Also got stuck in lift which is tiny.
Loved the food

Thank you once again
I was part of a group that were in need to be near the Winter Gardens for a dance competition, it took about 5 minutes walk and your there.
On staying at this hotel in a family room, we found it too hot and uncomfortable. Exterme noise levels coming from the bars at night made it difficult for our young children to sleep. Although not the only kids there, the other children in the hotel were allowed to run riot, and on several occasions up to the small hours of the morning shouting and screaming running up and down the stairs with no adult or staff intervention. The manager and hotel staff we found were not in the least bit helpful and did nothing to resolve our problems. We found the restaurant waiting staff were very pleasant, but did not have a good grasp of English. All in all a rather expensive and dissapointing holiday that we will not be recommending to anyone
Comfortable & friendly
Stayed at this hotel at the end of October. Great location, close enough for Blackpool if you want to go there but far enough away to avoid the hen/stag parties. The food was excellent - really couldn't fault it. The service was also very good with friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you.
Only downsides are the car park which gets very full, although no problem parking on the road &. the rooms were also a bit too warm for my liking.
I'd definitely recommend it & will be returning in the future.
Thank you once again
