Shoppers are set to benefit from a host of parking offers in Blackpool town centre this year to support town centre businesses and trade.
£1 Christmas Parking in Blackpool
Blackpool is to benefit from discounted parking and public transport fares in a joint campaign to encourage people to shop local this Christmas.
Throughout December, residents and out-of-town visitors will be able to park for just £1 for any three-hour period on:
- East Topping Street and
- West Street car parks in the town centre.
£1 Travel on Late Nights & Sundays
Blackpool Transport will offer £1 tickets to use trams and buses
- three late night shopping Thursdays – December 6, 13 and 20 after 5.30pm
- and all day on the five Sundays in December.
The discounted parking offer is being funded by Blackpool Council and the Town Centre BID.
It starts on Saturday 1 December, which is National Small Business Saturday and the day of Blackpool’s Christmas Lights Switch-On in St John’s Square. It runs until January 1.
Please use the offers on Christmas parking in Blackpool and shop local
Cllr Mark Smith, Blackpool Council’s Cabinet Member for Business and Economic Development, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce discounted car parking throughout the month of December on three of our main town centre car parks.
“It means that people will be able to park for three hours for just £1. We hope that will encourage our own residents to shop in their own town centre this Christmas and will also provide an attractive deal for visitors coming from out-of-town.”
A Town Centre BID spokesperson added: “Blackpool town centre has so much to offer to Christmas shoppers in terms of the mix of independent and national brands, illuminated streets and a vastly-improved range of cafes and restaurants.
“We hope the discounted offer will be a great incentive for people to not just shop in Blackpool this Christmas, but also enjoy some of the rich entertainment that is on offer at our theatres and venues.”
Enjoy Christmas entertainment
This year sees a number of top-quality Christmas productions in and around the town centre including the Beauty & The Beast pantomime at the Grand Theatre; The Wizard Of Oz at the Opera House; Santa’s Sleigh at the Pavilion Theatre in the Winter Gardens; and Aladdin at The Blackpool Tower Circus.
There’s also a wide range of Christmas shows and party nights at leading venues such as Viva.
Jane Cole, Managing Director of Blackpool Transport said: “We are delighted to be supporting Blackpool town centre by offering customers greatly reduced fares so that they can get in and out of town on key shopping days in the run-up to Christmas and New Year.
“It’s a great benefit to our regular riders, but also a fantastic opportunity for other people to experience how good Blackpool’s public transport offer has become.”
