Tour of the Illuminations
As famous as the Trams and the Tower, Blackpool just wouldn’t be the same without the illuminations!
Each year, thousands of people flock to see this unique seaside attraction and there is no finer way to take in the spectacle than from one of our tramcars.
Departing regularly from the Pleasure Beach loop, become part of the attraction with a ride on one of our unique illuminated feature trams
Choose from the Western Train, Frigate “HMS Blackpool” or the Fishermans’ Friend trawler – all of which are eye catching, illuminated tram cars guaranteeing you centre stage and a great view of the illuminations as you glide along the promenade
We also run trips with our heritage fleet as well, giving the opportunity to savour a tour of the illuminations either from the higher vantage point of a double decker or, if you’re feeling brave, from one of our open topped boat trams! Weather permitting, obviously.
Tours and prices
We run multiple tours throughout the evening, each departing from the Pleasure Beach Loop.
Please note – this is the ONLY location you can board one of our tour trams.
The tour runs through the full length of the illuminations to Bispham, where the tram turns round to head back to Pleasure Beach once more. You can, however, get off the tram at any one of the heritage tram stops that we pass on the way back to Pleasure Beach.
It is not possible to pre-book a tour; just turn up at the Pleasure Beach and pay once you board the tram.
