Reminded me of the days when I live in Croydon and trams were the main form of transport. Here in Blackpool, they are both a visitor attraction and means of getting about. We travelled from one end of the line to the other. They are even more of an interest at illuminations time as some are decorated with lights.

Obviously, the driver of the tram that left Starr Gate at 9.06am on Friday 22nd August, found it hilarious to see us rushing to catch the tram before pulling away as soon as we nearly got to the doors. This is the starting point for the trams, so he wasn't running late ( and checking our watch he left early)... More

Having visited Blackpool many times over the last 15 years, I have to say how much the trams have improved, especially for the disabled. Easy access & even has symbols on the platform so you know where the entrance will be for wheelchairs. Got a day saver ticket which saved us about £ 15 as we just hopped on and... More

Gone are the old bone shakers that kept you awake now these new ones are so smooth you could nod off. They stop every 2 seconds tho there to many stops for my liking but other wise a bargain if you get a day saver

Although I loved the old-style trams- I think the new tramway system is efficient, clean and less noisy. As a resident of Blackpool, travelling on the trams is just like taking a bus, yet they are a nicer way to travel- especially on a nice day along the seafront. The trams circulate from Squires gate to Fleetwood and there are... More
