Follow the illuminations from the Fleetwood tram end right to the Blackpool South end, great show. Have done this drive about 6 times over the last 30 years, always good.

I have wanted to see the illuminations for some time and wasn’t disappointed. Absolutely beautiful and well worth the long journey to see them.

Miles and miles of colourful illuminations make Blackpool at 'must-visit' during the autumn. We enjoyed the light show that was projected onto the Tower complex just before 9pm, best viewed if you stand on the Comedy Carpet right in front of the Tower entrance.

A 24 hour tram pass covers you on normal trams & busses through the lights. Bispam has more lights that are bigger than Blackpool.

You wait at the tour departure point at 7.30 for the illuminations tours. It is £6 adult £3 kids, tram is by chance if u get the open topped or not as they have a few running at a time.
