Travel

Blackpool, just a few miles from Junction 32 of the M6, is very easy to get to by road. The resort’s close proximity to the sea and Blackpool Airport means you can travel by air or the water if that’s more your thing – there’s more information on travelling to Blackpool on our dedicated travel page.

Getting around once you’re here is just as simple, with lots of attractions within walking distance of each other. There are other travel options too, including buses and the resort’s famous heritage trams, which run the length of the promenade, allowing you to travel in historic style.

Here’s all the travel information you need to ensure your trip to Blackpool is a hassle-free success, whether you’re bringing young kids or need special access for disabled or older members of your party.
