Blackpool's Central Promenade opposite Blackpool Tower is currently undergoing major improvement works and is closed to traffic until June 2011. As such, if you are unfamiliar with driving around the town we recommend that you park in Blackpool's Central car park and continue your journey on foot, approximately 10 minutes walk.
Directions from the M55 to Central car park:
At the end of the M55 keep in the outside lane and take the second exit at the roundabout onto Yeadon Way. Continue straight ahead onto Seasiders Way. Continue straight ahead onto Spine Road until reaching Central car park; you will see 'Funland' and 'Sealife Centre' on the left, and the large green parrot on the side of 'Coral Island', and Blackpool Tower ahead.
