Hi Zoe,

Here is the map on google for it. It's only a few minutes walk from the town centre.

Hi, Zoe,

From North Pier head straight up Talbot Road, pass the old bus station on the right and the train station is on the left hand side - you can't miss it. Allow about ten minutes if walking the equivalent of the distance from the pier to the station.

Hi everyone

I'm arriving at Blackpool North Station tomorrow afternoon and need to get to the Big Blue Hotel at the Pleasure Beach. What would be the best way to get there - taxi?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Jetix,

You can get a taxi from outside the station - it will be a three mile plus journey straight along the prom. Alternatively, and if you haven't got much luggage, you could walk down to North Pier, (turn right outside the station and head straight down Talbot Road towards the sea), and catch a tram straight to the the Big Blue.

Personally, I'd get a cab - less hassle after you've been travelling. Cabs are licensed by the council - licensed 'hackney cabs' have blue and white plates and an illuminated taxi sign.
