Illuminations Tour - Upper Deck

tour - Up to 24 people


A 50 minute tour of the famous Blackpool Illuminations aboard a double-deck Heritage Blackpool tram. It will be a traditional and iconic Balloon or Millennium tram. Your seat will be on the Upper deck.

Boarding at Pleasure Beach Heritage Tram Stop, the tram heads north along the Promenade past the thousands of twinkling lights, all three piers and The Tower along the Golden Mile. It then continues along the North Shore promenade to the illuminated and animated tableaux between Cabin and Bispham.

Going forward to Little Bispham it then turns south and travels all the way back to the Pleasure Beach where you first boarded. If you were on the sea-side on the way north, you will be on the road-side on the return and so miss nothing of the spectacle.

This is not a hop-on-hop-off tour. If you don't wish to stay with us to the end of the tour at Pleasure Beach, you can leave us at Bispham, Cabin or North Pier & Tower Heritage stops on the return journey. If you leave, that will be the end of your tour. You will not be able to continue your tour on a later tram.

The tour takes around 50 to 60 minutes.
