Trains first came to Lancashire's Poulton-le-Fylde, mainly just known as Poulton, in the 1840s. The station played an important part in the early development of nearby Blackpool as a tourist resort as, for a few years before the line was extended to Blackpool, passengers would get the train to Poulton and then travel on to the seaside by horse-drawn vehicles. The station that stands today is the second to serve the town, opened in 1896 when there was a change to the track layout. As you come out of the station, you're right on Breck Road, where you'll find the start of the main shopping area as well as cafes, pubs and restaurants. Turning right down Ball Street, there's the historic marketplace with a long-standing market every Monday and farmers market once a month, and a little further on is the Teanlowe Shopping Centre.
