Promenade Tour (Balloon Tram lower deck)

A tour of the Blackpool Promenade by double deck 'Balloon' Heritage Tram. Your seat will be on the lower deck.

Boarding at the northbound North Pier & Tower Heritage Tram Stop, the tram heads north along the Promenade to Little Bispham before turning south and travelling back past the North Pier, The Tower, along the Golden Mile past Central and South Piers and then to Pleasure Beach where it turns once more to return 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 but that is then the end of your tour. You will not be able to continue your tour on a later tram. You can only board at North Pier & Tower Heritage Tram stop.

The tour takes around an hour.

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.
