Trains to Blackpool Pleasure Beach
Blackpool Pleasure Beach has its own mainline station, which is served by regular trains from Blackpool North, Preston and Colne. The largest of these three connecting stations is Preston, which sees trains arriving from across the country, including Liverpool (one hour fifteen minutes), London (two hours), Edinburgh (two and a half hours) and York (two hours and twenty minutes).
About Blackpool Pleasure Beach
On arrival at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, it is difficult to know where to start, packed as it is with hundreds of rides, attractions and shows. If you're travelling with kids, the first port of call should probably be Nickelodeon Land, home to rides featuring cartoon favourites such as SpongeBob Squarepants, Dora the Explorer and the Rugrats. If you're more the thrill-seeking type, then don't worry, you've still come to the right place. Blackpool Pleasure Beach is heaving with high-octane rollercoasters, including the Big Dipper, Valhalla, Ice Blast and, of course, the world famous The Big One.
But there's plenty more to see besides theme-park rides, the Pleasure Beach has a bursting calendar of shows and events all year round, including magic shows, musicals and circus entertainment. And once you've worked up an appetite, you certainly won't go hungry. Take your pick of anything from a three-course sit-down meal to a Chinese takeaway - and everything in between. Finally, it would be foolish to visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach without making a trip to the beach itself, with everything you could wish for from a UK seaside resort - amusements, illuminations and good-old traditional fish and chips.
