Park for £1 in Blackpool

Discounted parking has arrived in Blackpool to boost Christmas shoppers

Throughout December, residents and out-of-town visitors will be able to park for just £1 for any three-hour period on Central, East Topping Street and West Street car parks in the town centre.

In addition, Blackpool Transport will offer £1 tickets to use trams and buses after 5.30pm on the three late night shopping Thursdays, December 6, 13 and 20 – and all day every Sunday during December.

The discounted parking offer, which is being funded by Blackpool Council and the Town Centre BID, will run until January 1.

Cllr Mark Smith, Blackpool Council’s Cabinet Member for Business and Economic Development, said: 

"We are delighted to be able to announce discounted car parking throughout the month of December on three of our main town centre car parks."

"It means that people will be able to park for three hours for just £1. We hope that will encourage our own residents to shop in their own town centre this Christmas and will also provide an attractive deal for visitors coming from out-of-town."

The discounted tram and bus tickets will be available on three late night shopping evenings and on the five Sundays in December.
