Until 2011 what we now call the Heritage trams operated the main Blackpool tram service between Starr Gate and Fleetwood, operating 362 days of the year. After the multi-million pound upgrade transformed the tramway into the light-rail system you see today, plans were made to retain a core selection of trams from the original system and return them to passenger carrying duties once more. 

Heritage Tram Tours currently operates with a team of dedicated engineers and volunteer tram drivers/conductors. We are renowned for our Illuminations Tours every year and our all-year-round trips up and down the Fylde Coast. 

Types of tours

Promenade Tours: 1 hour trips up and down Blackpool’s promenade
