Terminus Station

Step Free

Blackpool North is the town's main station, it's where the long-distance trains from Birmingham, Leeds, London and Manchester arrive.
The beach, the north pier and The Tower Ballroom are a 15 - 25 min flat walk away along Talbot Road, there are steps and slopes up to this road in the corner of the car park in front of the station.

The access between the station and the promenade will be transformed in early 2023 when a new branch of the town's tramline will begin to serve Blackpool North.
For the time being the area between the station and the heart of the town is therefore a development site.

As a result the station is also somewhat cut off from the surrounding streets, though if you arrive early for a train departure, Blackpool North houses a cafe.

Blackpool South station

Blackpool South station lives up to its name with a location to the south of the town centre.
The local trains which use it depart and arrive either hourly or every other on a route which links it to the major station at Preston; though the trains which serve Blackpool North also call at Prestom
The trains on the line to Blackpool North also call at a station named Blackpool Pleasure Beach, so if you'll be heading to the town to seek thrills in its amusement park it can be worth looking up the connections to the station.
Turn left when you reach the road and walk around to the sea front, passed The Blue Hotel, and the nearest entrance gate is a 10-15 min walk from the station.
