Blackpool host’s its annual world-famous air show on the Blackpool Tower Festival Headland on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th August 2018.

The weekend promises some show-stopping performances with up to 50,000 visitors expected to watch the show each day on Blackpool’s Promenade.

If you’re travelling by car to Blackpool there will be a lot of demand for permanent car parks across the resort and roads in and around Blackpool will be busy.

Why not take the stress out of getting where you need to be and use our Park & Glide facility, located just a 10-minute drive from the end of the M55.

You’ll be able to park your car (or coach) with ease and make use of our FREE shuttle bus service to the Starr Gate tram stop. You’ll then be able to glide into the centre of Blackpool within 10 minutes, hassle free!

Car parking is just £7 to park all day between 9am – 11pm with the last shuttle bus back to the car park at 11pm. You’ll benefit from reduced travel on Blackpool’s world famous tramway, and the buses too!

The car park is secure and supervised all day. Simply arrive on the day and pay for your car parking on site. You'll then be able to buy your reduced travel ticket from any of our helpful staff before you board the tram, or from your conductor onboard.
