Information about parking in Blackpool
Driving to and parking in Blackpool
Most visitors arrive into Blackpool via the M55 which leads into the outskirts of the town. From there the Preston New Road leads all of the way to the edge of the town centre. The car parks in Blackpool are said to be some of the largest in the UK.
There are over 20 council car parks in Blackpool, ranging from multi storeys to small parking lots. All of the council car parks are open 24 hours with the exception of Talbot Road multi storey and West Street, which are open 7am to midnight and 7am to 12:30am respectively.
You can view all of the council car parks on this interactive Google map.

Private Parking options:
JustPark offer a wide range of pre-bookable, guaranteed spaces in Blackpool with prices from as low as £3 per day.
Bank Holiday Parking:
There is no free on-street parking during Bank Holidays.
There are free motorcycle bays in most council owned car parks. If the motorcycle bays are full and you chose to park in a regular spot then you will need to buy a pay and display ticket. The council advise that you should not leave your pay and display ticket on your bike, but instead take it with you and keep it as proof should you get issued with a penalty charge notice.
Some of the council operated car parks offer 3 hours free parking for Blue Badge holders, although they advise drivers to check the individual car park notice boards for more information. There is also free on-street parking for up to 3 hours, and Blue Badge holders can also park on double yellow lines in most resident parking areas.
