Train Travel in Blackpool

Blackpool has two main train stations, Blackpool North [map] , which connects the town to major cities in the UK, and Blackpool South [map], which offers services to local destinations.

Trains from the North station, which is ideally situated close to the Tower, Winter Gardens and North Pier, has direct services to Manchester where you can get connections to almost anywhere, including London.

Blackpool South, which is located close to the Pleasure Beach, offers services to the places such as Lytham, St Annes and Preston, although it does not connect to Blackpool North.

There are around 10 daily services from London to Blackpool, via Preston, and the journey takes between three-and-a-half and four hours. There are 35 direct trains from Manchester to Blackpool with a journey time of one hour 15 minutes.

To encourage more tourists to travel to the resort by train, Arriva Trains Northern, which provides services to Blackpool from around the North West, often offers family discounts for top attractions, such as Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Sandcastle and Blackpool Tower.
