Blackpool's flat golden sands stretch for seven miles in total and there's plenty to keep you occupied. Leisurely wander the salt-soaked planks of the Victorian piers, scream at the top of your lungs from a whooshing rollercoaster or sit back and take it all in from one of the historic Blackpool trams. If you travel on one of our trains to Blackpool you can guarentee a good old fashioned day of fun at Britain's favourite Northern seaside resort.
Over six million people visit Blackpool each year, making it Britain's number one holiday resort. Many come for the two largest attractions, Pleasure Beach Blackpool and Blackpool Tower, although the town features many other smaller attractions including three piers, numerous amusement arcades, seven miles of beaches and pedestrian promenade, and a vibrant nightlife.
The Blackpool Illuminations light show extends tourist season into the autumn months. While many tourists go to Blackpool nowadays for party weekends (often hen or stag groups), an older clientele enjoys the nostalgia of the town. The Tower Ballroom remains a global mecca for ballroom dancing and the Empress Ballroom is a popular venue for live music acts.
We offer regular and comfortable trains to Blackpool from major towns and cities in the north of England and Scotland. All our trains have the option of travelling First class and a trolley service is available on our core routes.
