Getting Around Blackpool
Blackpool and the Fylde Coast is well served by main roads and motorways. Getting here isn’t too difficult and you can travel in, out and around relatively easily.
There’s an excellent public transport service provided by Blackpool Transport. New modern trams operate alongside the heritage tram fleet from Blackpool through Cleveleys to Fleetwood. The bus fleet is mostly new Palladium style buses.
Do you already live in Blackpool? Stop rushing for a minute and see what’s around you. Use all the attractions and enjoy the shows and seaside – just when you like!
All the tourist and seaside things aren’t just for visitors. They’re on your doorstep for you to enjoy too! When your ordinary life feels hum-drum, take a break. Residents don’t have to drive for hours to get here – remember what it feels like to enjoy a day at the British seaside. Walk the prom, enjoy fish and chips, and visit the amusements. You’ve got a quick trip home and none of the long homeward journey that visitors suffer!
Explore Around Blackpool
Blackpool covers a big area. It stretches as far north as its boundary with Cleveleys which is in the Borough of Wyre. That’s at Kingsway, quite near to Cleveleys town centre.
In the south, Blackpool’s boundary with the neighbouring borough of Fylde is at Squires Gate. That’s the sand dunes side of Squires Gate Lane.
There’s a lot more to Blackpool than just the seafront. Heading inland, the boundary of Blackpool follows a bit of a wiggly line, meeting both Wyre and Fylde in various places in the countryside.
Something for everyone
Collectively the Fylde Coast offers something for everyone. There’s beautiful rural landscape to enjoy, hectic Blackpool and miles of beaches. Enjoy lakeside walks in Lytham, the Victorian seafronts of Fleetwood and St Annes – and much, much more.
