Used the trams for 2 days whilst visiting and couldn't believe how friendly the staff where. Blackpool transport have got something right here. I didn't come across any that didn't smile and say hello.

The tram runs regularly but it is popular so a lot of people will end up standing. Good service and really pleasant conductors on all our trips. We bought a 24 hour ticket which was cheaper but you still have to queue, it was August...More

Regular and clean (The whole fleet looks almost new) Except for the heritage trams :) which obviously aren't LOL Went all the way up to Fleetwood and all the way down to Lytham. Brilliant Trams! Amazing value.

Thanks for the feedback. Glad to see you travelled the whole network. The new trams are now 6 years old, some of the heritage are over 100.

We love the trams. Not so keen on the modern ones though. It's great when the illuminations are on, if you head towards the tram stop at South Pier you can catch one that is all lit up in various shapes such as a train...More

The trams are extremely busy and cannot cope with the amount of people, when the Airshow weekend is on. Otherwise good value for money.

Thank you for the feedback. We do everything we can to try and accommodate the thousands of people that come for the weekend but we are limited to the amount of trams we have. Sorry we did not met your expectations.

Yes the trams run on a Sunday. The best stop for your hotel is Wilton parade. The trams run from Starr Gate at the very south of Blackpool all the way through to Fleetwood. Hope this helps.

I am afraid that bus passes from outside the local area can not be used on the tram. There are a number of price options depending on what you plan to do a 3 person group ticket for £13. The ticket lasts 24hrs and you can... More
