Getting Around Blackpool
Like a trip up the tower, a tour on the Blackpool Tramway forms an essential part of any visit to the town. It’s quite simply the perfect way to voyage through the seaside resort – with the spectacular coastline on one side and the famous Golden Mile on the other.
The Golden Mile is only really a saying considering the distance from the Blackpool Pleasure Beach to The Blackpool Tower is more like three miles – so the tram is the perfect way to take the strain off your feet!
Originally advertised as ‘the only way to travel’, the whole line stretches 12 miles from Starr Gate to Fleetwood Ferry; stopping close to all the major attractions along the way.
We have been the worldwide launch pad for the state-of-the-art new FLEXITY2 tram from Bombardier – the largest manufacturer of light rail vehicles in the world. Our tram fleet has a first-class focus on passenger comfort and safety – with accessibility features to ensure that everyone can enjoy the ride.
And if you love the traditional Blackpool tram, the £100 million upgrade has allowed our heritage tramcars to run side-by-side with the new models, meaning visitors can continue to experience an authentic tram ride.
Our saver tickets offer great value for money on all Blackpool Transport Buses and Trams. You can buy all tickets on board, at a PayPoint or on the Blackpool Transport app.
There’s a ticket to suit everyone. Travelling for the weekend? There's a 3-day ticket for that. Travelling all week? Then the 7-day ticket is the best value for you. If you’re a regular traveller on our s, then grab a 30-day ticket.
