Heritage Tram Tours

Blackpool was home to the first electric tramway in mainland Britain back in 1885 and the operational fleet is comprised of many different tram cars that have been seen on the Blackpool tramway since the turn of the 20th century.

In 2012 we introduced a Light Rail system on the Blackpool Transport to truly modernise the operation.

Great value Promenade Tours are every 20 minutes between their special stops at Pleasure Beach and Tower and North Pier - from 10am to 5pm.

Split your tour and ride different trams. A round tour is only £3.50 adult / £2 child. Under 5's and doggies are free.

Heritage Tram Tours also offer a selection of tours and events throughout the year.

Promenade Tours operate every weekend and daily during most UK school holidays. Usually between at Pleasure Beach and Tower & North Pier with limited tours extending to Cabin. On August weekends these tours are extended to Bispham at no extra cost. 

On Tram Sunday weekend and August Bank Holiday weekend we also offer tours to Cleveleys and Fleetwood. Adult £5.50 / Child £3. 

Heritage Day Travelcards are available Adult £11 / Child £6 / Family £25. During Illuminations Travelcards are valid on Illuminations Tours from Pleasure Beach. These Travelcards are also valid on Blackpool Transport modern tram and bus services. 

Heritage Tram Tours offer a variety of events such as Ghost Tram, Great British Night Out, Afternoon Tea and Open Days.

So, whether you want to hire a tram, join for one of the regular events or just enjoy a very special ride along Blackpool’s Promenade, we have something on offer for everyone.
