The main train station in Blackpool is Blackpool North. I was traveling from London and had to change trains at Preston for the final short bit to Blackpool. The station is a fairly short walk from the seafront and it is really close to the B&B that I was staying at.
I took the train on a bank holiday and decided to upgrade my travel pass to first class as it was only £15 that day. As you can see it was an empty car aside from me. It was worth it to upgrade for that amount of money as I ate that amount of food in the train ride up. The woman serving kept bringing me two of everything I ordered, except for my hot breakfast. Two colas, two orange juice, two bags of crisps, etc.

I found the cheapest way was to fly with easyjet from Belfast to Liverpool and then get a train to Blackpool. There's also the ferry and coach.
Most places of interest are within walking distance of each other. For those that aren't, there's regular buses and plenty of taxis. There's also the tram.
Use the bus. There's bus with two floor it's very cool when you are in the second level in the front. There's too the tramway who is very cool just near the ocean. It's not very expensive to take the bus or the tramway.
Everyone wants to take them home, they stand there week in week out, they always look so sad!!! Blackpool beach is well known for its famous Donkeys, every childs delight.

This is not a real transport tip, but I had to take the picture. If you look closely on the side of the plane you will spot a famous name of an airline company. I thought it quite amusing!

The Blackpool tramway system.
The Blackpool tramway system was set up in 1885 and is said to be the worlds first electric street tramway.

Ride on a tram, these are some of the only ones still running in the UK. Just jump aboard and then pay the driver or conductor.

Here is a very little car, only one place inside. Maybe this is the best way to get around Blackpool :) ?
