    Hi Dave, Can't help personally but if you contact Maggie she might be able to help you because she goes to a site in Blackpool regularly and will know the local roads fit for an RV ...

    Hope you all have a wonderful time...

    (Might it not be worth you all staying at the site Maggie stays at as it apparently has a swimming pool and is child-orientated)? Sorry! :Smile: Spending your money for you...:RollEyes:

    Blackpool Council supplied me with information (including MH specific information) in June. Details (with links to the Council web site) Here.

    We drove up there about 3 weeks ago.

    At several points work is being carried out on the tracks, including the Fleetwood end

    You probably need to check if trams are running the full length and if any restrictions apply with Blackpool Council (website??).

    Hi Snowbird
    As Terry said one entry is blocked to the south prom (cleveleys) at little bispham best way in is to drive passed towards cleveleys then turn left at the garage then left at the prom, the trams are running from squires gate to fleetwood. so have a good visit. Pete :thumb::thumb:

    We are supposed to be going to Blackpool next weekend for a rally meet. I'm not that bothered about going really but the kids want to go to the pleasure beach.

    Do you know if its right that you can get a wrist band that lets you in the pleasure beach , but not on the rides , for a fiver?
    We have been told there is.

    I think we will keep an eye on the forcast, let that decide where we go. I'd rather be in a dull miserable Whitby than Blackpool personally.
