Why Visit Blackpool by Rail?

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. The Blackpool Tower Ballroom remains a go-to destination for ballroom dancing fans, and many would recall Reginald Dixon playing his organ with songs such as, "I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside”.

There are trains that run regularly from Preston Railway station going to the Blackpool South and Blackpool North railway stations. Blackpool North is the main station and if you’re heading to the Pleasure Beach for a day trip, change at the Kirkham and Wesham railway station and take the South line. Get off at the Pleasure Beach station, which is just before the last station.

The Blackpool Tower is one of the most popular attractions in the city with truly mesmerising views from the top. You can climb through the seven levels of attractions that include a circus, aquarium and the ballroom, before reaching the observation deck at the top.

Blackpool is the only British resort town that has three piers - the North, Central and South piers. The Central Pier has a giant Ferris wheel ride and other children’s rides, although the South Pier is the busiest of the three. If you want a more relaxing vibe, then the North Pier would be an ideal place to go.

One of the most visited places in Blackpool is the Pleasure Beach. It’s also Britain’s largest funfair park with several rollercoasters, including the Big One, which is the tallest rollercoaster in Britain, standing at a height of more than 200 feet.
