If you’re looking for car parking on your visit to Blackpool, look no further.
We’re in for a busy staycation summer this year and we look forward to welcoming visitors back to the resort. One question that’s always the same wherever you are visiting is, where can I park the car?
Whether you’re visiting Blackpool Tower, Madame Tussauds, Blackpool Zoo or just taking in the sights and smells of the Golden Mile, Blackpool’s Park & Ride is located just a 10-minute drive from the end of the M55.
From Saturday 31 July, Blackpool Council & Blackpool Transport are hosting a Park and Ride weekend service, every Saturday and Sunday throughout the summer including Monday 30th August for the Bank Holiday.
For just £15 per day park your car on the signposted site at Blackpool Airport (FY4 2QY) and hop onboard a free shuttle bus straight into Blackpool Town Centre, dropping you off outside Coral Island Amusement Centre, ready to start your day in the resort.
Not only does the £15 charge cover your car parking for the day, you will also receive unlimited travel on all Blackpool Transport buses and trams to make the most out of your time!

The Park and Ride car park will be open and fully manned between 8am and 8pm*. The last shuttle bus returning to the car park will leave New Bonny Street (opposite Coral Island’s Skull Entrance) at 7:30pm and all Park and Ride bus and tram tickets will be valid between 8am and 8pm on the day of purchase.
Paying for your Car Parking.
You can book in advance or pay on the day for your parking!
Booking your car parking and travel ticket in advance.
Booking in advance couldn’t be easier. Just download the handy Blackpool Transportmobile app , create an account, and purchase our Park and Ride ticket. If you purchase your mobile car parking ticket in advance, don’t activate it straight away, it’ll sit quietly in your mobile app wallet until you arrive and press ‘activate’.
Paying on the day.
If you’ve not managed to pre book, don’t worry! We’ll have some friendly colleagues at the car park on the day you arrive, ready with a ticket machine for you to purchase your car parking and travel ticket. If you haven’t managed to spot one of our colleagues, you can buy your tickets onboard the shuttle bus before you head into Blackpool Town Centre.
Please note, you will need to show a ticket before you are able to use the shuttle bus, if you haven’t managed to purchase one already, our drivers will be happy to assist.
*The car park will be locked and secured after 8pm. Please make sure to get back and move your car before the gates close.
