Trains to Blackpool North

Glass-fronted Blackpool North station opened in 1974 to replace a previous station that dated back to 1846 when the arrival of the railways transformed the town into one of England's most famous and iconic seaside resorts. Today Blackpool North station is the terminus of the Blackpool branch line, with regular services to Manchester Victoria, York, Liverpool Lime Street, Manchester Airport, and a daily service to London Euston. The main attraction of Blackpool is, of course, the seafront, and the North Pier is a ten-minute walk from the station. From there, following the promenade south will take you past Blackpool Tower, behind which is the Houndshill Shopping Centre. Further on are the Central and South Piers, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Sandcastle Water Park, as well as many other amusements, restaurants, pubs and hotels. The length of the seafront is served by the Blackpool Tramway, which offers special heritage tram rides during the summer months.

Station details & facilities

The main entrance is just off the High Street and leads to the concourse with ticket office, toilets, a shop and waiting areas. All eight of the station's platforms are directly linked to the concourse, and there is step-free access throughout. The car park has space for 80 vehicles and is just outside the station building, by the bus stop for onward connections. The closest tramway stop is currently a ten-minute walk away along the seafront.
