Fleetwood Museum

The story of Fleetwood from past to present. Lancashire County Council are currently managing the museum until the formal transfer to Fleetwood Museum Trust as the new operator is completed.

Reviewed By Agustarod - Fleetwood, United Kingdom

Had a great two hours visiting the museum in Fleetwood today with my granddaughter.
Very interesting with many different subjects from Whale skulls to Marionettes a great insight into a Victorian Seaside town and it associated industries from sea fishing and holidaying .
The surprise of the Museum is the Harriet trawler hidden away in a great purpose built "shed " it is fascinating to see how big the real thing is when out of the water.
Great for kids and adults. Nice cafe with good food and staff give a warm welcome and very nice folk .
Recommend a visit.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Reviewed By philipiouk - UK

We had a really good day out but that’s not to say this park doesn’t have issues.
We would have paid over £100 for 2 adults and 2 young children, fortunately we were saved by Tesco Clubcard.
Initial impressions were good, there were loads of staff on the ticket desk. We then went through security with mental detectors and bag searches; initially I felt reassured by this however it was clearly not there for security and instead there to sniff out picnics. If only they were so rigorous in finding the cannabis people were openly smoking around the park.
Once inside we had a good day. Barely any queues. Some of the new rides are well thought out and exceptional like Wallace and Gromit. It’s just a shame the park looks an utter mess and Shambles. It’s a hotch-potch of rides, concrete and metal work. The grounds are not great. I would also argue there aren’t enough rides to justify the high price.
Which brings me on to the final negativity - the price of food n drink. Rip-off doesn’t even come close. When you’ve already spent so much on admittance you don’t expect to pay £2 for a small bottle of Pepsi.
We had a good day but this was mainly down to going on clubcard and the park being empty. We would have been disappointed had this not been the case.

Leighton Hall

We are Open May - September, 2pm - 5pm, Tuesday till Friday (also Bank Holiday Sundays and Mondays). This romantic Gothic house is the lived in family home of the famous Gillow furniture making dynasty. Boasting unique, priceless pieces of Gillow furniture, Leighton's informal guided tours appeal to all ages. Outside the Hall are woodland walks, an abundant 19th century walled garden, herbaceous borders and roses, a fragrant herb patch and an ornamental vegetable plot. Every day at 3.30 pm (weather permitting), Falconer Jim Brown, gives flying displays with his birds of prey, where visitors get the chance to put on a glove and really get up close to these fantastic creatures. For 2015 we have installed a new petite children's play area. Our products have been sourced locally as we worked with a local playground company to maximize the space we had available. So we hope the children will enjoy these facilities. Please go to our website or Facebook page for entrance fees, or just give us a call.

We arrived a little early and waited in the Sunshine before being welcomed into the Hall by several friendly volunteers, who explained our options for Hall tour timings, refreshments and garden walks.
We chose the first tour and it was fantastic. Heather, our guide, was warm, friendly and amusing. We felt very at ease going round the house and were given plenty of time to study items that interested us after a talk about the featured rooms. This is a family home and the items in it have been used by generations, with the public now welcomed in to share the history and stories.
More pleasant and efficient people in the cafe, then we watched a display from the resident Hawk Garden. This was wonderful and really finished off a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
Thank you for welcoming us to Leighton Hall, we will definitely return (we didn't feel we quite did the beautiful Gardens justice!)

Blackpool Tramway

Blackpool Transport is the proud operator of Blackpool's £100 million tramway. The four year project, which concluded in April 2012, saw the replacement of 11 miles of track, creation of a new depot and introduction of a fleet of 16 state-of-the-art trams. It has never been easier to travel across Blackpool and the Fylde coast, with faster journey times, easy access and integrated Blackpool1 tickets that give you unlimited use of the trams and Blackpool Transport bus network (excluding Heritage Trams). Our frequent and reliable tram service provides an energy efficient mode of transport connecting residents and visitors to all major leisure, retail and businesses along the 11 mile stretch of coastline between Starr Gate and Fleetwood. The trams have level boarding and step-free interiors and designated disabled/pushchair areas making them accessible to all. Our frequent and reliable service connects passengers to all major leisure, retail and businesses along the 11 mile stretch of coastline. Heritage Tram Tours operate on Public and School Holidays, most weekends during Spring/Summer/Autumn and on special events. Heritage Day tickets are available that allow unlimited use of both heritage and modern trams plus Blackpool Transport buses. Heritage Trams stop only at the specially marked Heritage Tram Stops at Pleasure Beach, North Pier/Tower, Cabin, Bispham*, Cleveleys* and Fleetwood Ferry* (*special event days only). Blackpool has the oldest electric street tramway in the world with records dating back to 1884 when track plans were produced for an electric tramway that would connect North and South Shore. Blackpool Corporation paid for and maintained the infrastructure, whilst the Blackpool Electric Tramway Company, formed in January 1885 provided the electrical equipment, depot and tramcars. The tramway opened on the 29th September 1885. After the second world war, there was gradual consolidation and by 1962, the trams were confined to the 11 mile route from Starr Gate to Fleetwood which still operates today. The bus services expanded along with the town throughout the sixties, seventies and eighties. Since bus deregulation in 1986, the trams and buses have been operated by Blackpool Transport Services Ltd, a Blackpool Council Company. While the trams themselves are owned and run by Blackpool Transport, the tramway infrastructure is currently owned by Blackpool Council and leased to the Company, which pays an annual track rental fee for the privilege.

Reviewed By Paul H - Huddersfield, United Kingdom

The best time to use the trams are during the ellumination from September to November. During the day they are public transport from the North pier at Blackpool to the Fleetwood market town.
At night out come trams covered with lights. Walls ice cream, a steam train, double decker and single deckers . All the family from babies to OAP will enjoy watching and riding on them. If you go to Blackpool ride the trains at least once. Some towns still have trams. My town Huddersfield had trams till the late 70s and some like Manchester and Sheffield have brought them back into action again, very green.

The Promenade, Fleetwood

Reviewed By middlecr - Berlin, Germany

We took the tram from Blackpool to Fleetwood as a way of seeing more but not having to drive. Was not sure what to find in this town but pleasantly surprised. A lovely walk back in time, lovely views across to the Lake District and Morecambe Bay. Really enjoyed this lovely town.

Whilst visiting my gravely ill brother this week I asked him where he would most like to go for a trip out. He chose Farmer Parr's at Fleetwood. We arrived at eleven and were greeted by a very pleasant young man in the paying kiosk...MoreGreat review. It is great to receive this kind of feedback because these are the reasons we do what we do. Glad it was a memorable day and we hope to see you again in the future.
