Cheap Trains to Blackpool
"I’d rather be on Blackpool Beach than Bondi Beach” Leon Pryce.
Blackpool is a seaside town in North West England known for the Pleasure Beach theme park, its three piers and the Blackpool Tower. While many of the younger locals and tourists head to Blackpool for weekend parties, the older clientele can soak up the resort town’s nostalgia. Blackpool Tower Ballroom remains a go-to destination for dancing fans many recall Reginald Dixon playing songs such as "I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside” on his organ.
Trains run regularly from Preston Railway station to Blackpool South and Blackpool North railway stations. If you’re heading to the Pleasure Beach for a day trip, change at the Kirkham and Wesham railway station, take the South line and depart at the Pleasure Beach station.
Blackpool Tower is one of the most popular attractions in the city with amazing views from the top. You can climb through the seven levels of attractions that include a circus, aquarium, and ballroom before reaching the observation deck at the top.
Blackpool is the only British resort that has three piers, the North, Central and South piers. The Central Pier has a giant Ferris wheel ride and other rides, though the South Pier is the busiest. If you want a relaxing walk, the North Pier is an ideal place to go.
