Coastal Tour (Balloon Tram upper deck)

Travel on the upper deck of one of the iconic double-deck 'Balloon' trams along the famous Blackpool Prom and the scenic Fylde coastline.

Your tour starts at our North Pier & Tower Heritage Tram stop in Blackpool taking you north to the fishing town of Fleetwood. There will be a brief photo stop in Fleetwood near the Ferry and Euston Park.

On our return from Fleetwood we travel south past all three piers and The Tower, along the Golden Mile and continuing as far as the Pleasure Beach before heading north once more and returning you to North Pier & Tower stop where you first boarded.

This is not a hop-on-hop-off tour. You can leave the tour at any intermediate Heritage Tram stop (see our website for details) but that will then be the end of your tour. You cannot complete your tour on a later tram. You can only board at the North Pier & Tower tram stop.

The tour duration of 2 hours is approximate as the tours take place on the live public tramway which can occasionally shorten or lengthen the time taken.

Children under 3 may travel free with an adult if they are not occupying a seat. No ticket will be required for them in that case. If you prefer they have a seat, please book a child ticket.
