  1. I don’t know beans about Blackpool (nor soccer for that matter) but I do have a lifelong fascination with WW II and Churchill. I understand that the underground headquarters he used during the war are available for tourists and were I there I would somehow manage to see it.

  2. Though I wasn’t born until 10 years after “the big one,” I’d definitely choose sites like that bunker over a soccer match were I lucky enough to go on such a trip. Besides, I hear soccer matches in England are downright dangerous! 😉

    • I’d opt for all the historical stuff myself. The bunker, the castles, etc. But los tres caballeros are huge soccer fans and they can’t wait to see real European soccer. Arsenal is sort of the parent team to our Colorado Rapids — same owners and all. And my guys even have their own tiles in the plaza outside Arsenal stadium. I worried about safety, too, but have been assured that all that hooliganism doesn’t happen in Arsenal stadium. Don’t know about Blackpool and Brighton (another planned destination).
