Get an all day pass, well worth the money. Good service. On time. Plenty room. Brand new trams , a little disappointing because I was hoping they would be the old style.

Trams are modern, smooth ride, easy to use. We bought a 1-day pass at a newsagents for £3.50 each - could use it all day. Slight dislike: could be more trams as standing room only at peak times.

Around 5 years ago there were over 50 trams running up and down the promanade, mow reduced to 20, meant to be every 10 minutes ended up more like 30 minutes. These trams are new and have a bad record of breaking down. Found it quicker to walk as they got very overcrowded.

Booked each day a one day ticket from local shop which is the cheapest way to buy cost us £3.50 each tram takes £4.50 so better deal from shops before going on tram and you can jump off and on as many times as you like great saving

I was staying in a B&B north of the North Pier and as it happened, right at the end of my B&B's road was a tram stop (The Cliffs Tram Stop). Never having tried it before I jumped on the first that arrived and headed off to Central Pier. I was very impressed by the tram system along the promenade,... More

We asked the conductor the price to travel on tram. He knew we wanted to just go down about 2km and back and we bought our ticket and got on. When we got off and immediately went to catch a tram back the next conductor said no you have to pay to go back again. Nice money if you can... More

All new rolling stock, new stops, frequent service, day tickets valid on trams and buses in Blackpool area at £4.50 per adult. Trusty hound welcome at 40p a trip. Hop on and off as you like, a good and reasonably priced way to get about between Blackpool and Fleetwood. Got to say I do miss the old trams but I... More
