The opening times of the Blackpool Pleasure Beach vary and can be subject to weather conditions, so it would be best to check the website before planning your trip. Generally the Pleasure Beach is open from 10am to 5pm during the season which lasts from February until November. However, it is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and weekend opening times can stretch to as late as 8pm.
How to get there
It’s almost 2 miles away but only a 4 minute drive and really couldn’t be any easier. Simply head south from the hotel and turn left onto Coronation St, then turn right onto Reads Ave, then it’s all lefts onto New Bonny St, the Promenade and onto Station Rd. Finally, a left onto Bond St and voila, you’re there! It’s roughly a 40 minute walk so a nice gentle stroll is always an option if the weather is nice. One you arrive, there are many Pleasure Beach car parks, so parking is never a stress.
What to do when you get there
