Advantages: A must for visitors
Disadvantages: A bit slower than a bus
I have lived in Blackpool all my life but to be honest I have only started going on the trams recently.
The tram instructors are really friendly and will willingly help you on with a pram in tow.
The trams go right from the south of Blackpool(nr ST Annes)through to Fleetwood and it goes straight down the prom which when the illuminations are on esspecially is a lovely ride.
Once getting into Fleetwood it seems quite strange as the trams go straight through the town centre and they have the right of way above the cars.
There are differant types of trams and I do believe a tram from the 1940's has come homne to Blackpool in the last week and will be up and running again next year.
During the summer they have openair trams and through the illuminations they have illuminated trams which I think is £3 per poerson to see the whole of the lights whch is a bargin in itself when you see the que of traffic that are waiting to go by car.
I think it is a must for all visitors as you can reach almost every part of the town by a tram.
