Whether you choose to take the bus, train, tram or head out on foot, getting around Blackpool is a cinch. With a cheap and easy-to-use public transport service, and plenty of options for getting from the airport to the city centre, you’re spoilt for choice.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LPL) is 102 kilometres (63 miles) south of Blackpool. Whether you’re flying in from the UK or from abroad, there are several ways to get from the airport to your hotel or B&B.
From the airport you can catch the 500 or 86A bus, or take a taxi to Liverpool South Parkway Rail Station, situated three kilometres (two miles) away. Off-peak tickets to Blackpool North Station cost around £15.70 and require a change of train at Preston Station – the journey takes around two hours in total.
By road, it’s a one-hour and twenty minutes' drive along the M6 and M55 – you can hire a car at the airport or catch a taxi from one of the ranks outside the terminal building. If in doubt about getting around Blackpool using public transport, use the Merseytravel Journey Planner (also available as an app) to help plan your journey.
