Took grandchildren to the lights after a day out at the zoo. They all loved the lights . Then off into the arcades to warm up.

We took a Tram along the sea front in order to see the illuminations. They were a little tacky at times but also entertaining. Definitely worth a go if you have kids.

It's a must. Every year, lights lights and more lights. Fish and chips, arcades then walk from one end to the other having look at all the beautiful lights. Also take a trip on the lit up tram!

We took our 10 month old daughter and she was amazed by all the lights. We will probably come to see the illuminations every year. Not much to see and do during the day during winter months but nice when the lights switch on.

This was what we expected but could have been better. Needs more seating and food/drink stalls. Wouldn't go back

Do you mean the Cinderella carriages? They were £45 from one end of the promenade to the other. You can buy a tram ticket for a day and hop n and off as often as you want. I was £14.50 for a 7 day ticket.

Lights are supposed to be around 6 miles long, bit of a walk if it is cold, wet or windy. We went at busy time so to avoid long queue we used tram - £6 each. Leaves from by Pleasure Beach and takes you back there. Would have... More
