Blackpool Pleasure Beach Car Park

Ever since I was young I've enjoyed Blackpool Pleasure beach. Once upon a time I could spend the day there for free as there was no entry fee. Oh, how times have changed, anyway enough about that, if you plan to visit Blackpool and would like to park up at the Pleasure Beach there are a few things to consider.

Getting there

Take junction 32 off the M6 (Broughton interchange) onto the M55. From there it's signposted (brown tourist signs) pretty much all the way there.

Bear in mind, Blackpool Pleasure Beach is large, you should plan which end you want to park at so you can quickly access the rides you plan on using whilst there.

For instance, if you plan on visiting Nickelodean land you might think it wise to park at the South end, however they only let you in that entrance if you are a guest at their hotel, Big Blue! It's a VIP entrance.

I grew up in Blackpool so have fond memories parking up here as a teenager and chilling out on the promenade, possibly with a girlfriend at the time 😇. I also worked at the "Plej" as it's know locally, on the prom units, flipping burgers.

Alternatives to car parks owned by Blackpool pleasure beach

You might find cheaper parking outside the Pleasure Beach, here are a few suggestions

  • On street parking, there are plenty of places nearby you can park for free, you might have to scout about for while, and get there as early as possible. One of my favourite spots is New South Promenade as the promenade is very nice at that end, there's also Burlington Road, Clifton Drive, and Bond Street.
