Travelling by Road

Blackpool is easily accessible by car and has good links to the UK’s main motorway network. The M55 is the main motorway into Blackpool. The M55 can easily be reached by exiting the M6 at Junction 32.

The M55 leads into the heart of the town centre, which is very close to the resort’s largest car park. Blackpool is also well served by the UK’s main coach operators. Many operators offer services directly into Blackpool all throughout the year.

Travelling by Rail

Blackpool has excellent rail links. The main resort is served by Blackpool North railway station which features regular inbound trains from around the country. Blackpool North is roughly a 10 minute walk from the Winter Gardens.

Blackpool North is also connected to other major rail hubs throughout the north and features direct trains from the likes of Manchester Piccadilly, Manchester Victoria, Preston, and Leeds.
