I am starting to look at next Spring for my long-awaited Blackpool visit. Only certain weeks are available due to my work schedule. One of these would be the week after Easter and over the following weekend (Apr. 29-30). Something sticks in my mind, however, that you folks have three-day "Bank Holiday" weekends and that one of these might be that weekend. Question - is that correct and would I have any trouble getting accomodations in Blackpool and/or the Lake District at that time of year? Will Valhalla be done? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Aside from Easter, we have two Bank Holidays in May, You can nearly always get accomodation in Blackpool - it's busiest in October wehn it's the Illuminations. I was there this weekend and it was heaving! If you want me to recommend a couple of B&Bs, drop me an email. Valhalla should be open by Easter. They're nearly done building the outside now and it looks really impressive! I believe it's going to have fire and smoke effects and - get this - snow!

Ooh, that sounds great! If you do get the tour, ask them to take you underneath the Derby Racer. It's amazing!
