Blackpool Borough Council provide car parking facilities throughout the town. There are short-stay, long-stay, coach and commercial parks available. Motorhome owners can use coach bays and purchase a coach-rate Pay & Display ticket. Most of our car parks also have motorcycle bays.
From March 2012 a program of car park closures based around the Blackpool North Railway Station area will begin. Some will close for good, others will re-open at a later date after refurbishment work is completed. This is due to building work commencing for the new Central Business District. Check the Parking Advice and Information page for the latest news.
