Illuminations Tours

Booking arrangements for our Illuminations Tours have not yet been finalised. They will be shown here, on our reservation and booking platform and on our social media channels when they are announced.

Making your reservation

Reservations can be made on our online booking platform up to 10 hours before the tour commences. This is to allow us time to plan seating reservations in accordance with social distancing recommendations.

You can make your booking online and instantly reserve your seat by using the buttons above or the Book Now button at the bottom of the page.

If you have any difficulty with our online booking system, please call us on 01253 290521 between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday.

We are unable to take bookings by email or post.

It is not possible to make Heritage Tour reservations or bookings on board the modern Blackpool trams, on Blackpool Transport buses or using the Blackpool Transport app.

Walk-up reservations

The requirements of social distancing and the safety of our crew and passengers means that our trams may appear to have spare capacity yet you may not be allowed to board if you have not pre-booked. Whilst this will be frustrating – as it is for us having to leave with empty seats – it is necessary to keep everyone safe in 2020.

There may be the possibilty that there are socially-distanced seats, mainly on the less busy early tour times, which are not occupied and our Inspector on duty at North Pier & Tower Heritage Tram stop may then be able to make an instant booking for you.

But we would strongly advise against relying on this as a way of riding with us. We can offer no guarantees that you will be able to board and we just hate to disappoint our customers.

Walk-up payment can be in cash or by contactless credit/debit card.
