There’s literally no free parking in Blackpool – the locals will have snapped up what little is available for the 90 mins you’re allowed…

It affects the trams and busses alike. Allow plenty of time for your journey and expect to walk cos you’ll get there faster… Wrap up warm and wear a good water and wind proof coat – cos The weather can turn in an instant.
