Mis information by tram staff, the last tram from Starr Gate to Fleetwood is 11.45pm, we were old the trams run until 1.45am, that is the return journey to Starr Gate. Spent a freezing cold 30 minutes waiting for a tram, we did manage to get a taxi but might not be so lucky if the resort busy.

I found that booking a family holiday to blackpool through the week instead of at weekends worked perfectly when arranging to go to the usual spots, Pleasure Beach, The Tower, Sandcastle etc.

The sandy golden beaches. Was nice and clean, which makes all the difference. I also felt at ease, as there were lifeguard patrols on the beach and driving around.

In Blackpool, I wouldn't change anything by the beach for walking, there are long sandy beaches to stroll along, and steps/flat surface at the top for though's not wanting sandy feet.

Always look into what the hotels are offering for the price. Some offer a ridiculously cheap prices for room only and when you have paid for breakfast either at the hotel or elsewhere you might find you could be paying as much for the two separetly as for a hotel which offers bed and breakfast within the single price.

Enjoyed every single moment at pleasure beach. Roller coaster journey was absolutely spot on. The queues to get on to the rides was a bit nuisance but bearable for the fun and entertainment. Such a fantastic experience to learn the meanings of pleasure. Love it!!!

Welcoming and nearly always ready to make your holiday experience a good one, which gives you the encouragement to re-visit.
Plenty of entertainment for the family and both the Tram and Bus services are excellent.
The new Prom is very impressive and encourages you to walk in safety and take in the fresh sea air.

We went to the Winter Garden to watch Mamma Mia. Having seen the show previously in London the Blackpool show was every bit as good as was the theatre.

It cost us only £21 for both of us for a three day pass which can be used on both the trams and the buses and it's not much more for a week so you can leave the car at the hotel and neither of you have to stay away from the wine when out at a restaurant!
