Leave the M6 at Junction 32. Follow the M55 into the outskirts of Blackpool and continue straight along this road until you see the ground on your right.

Pubs

Te 'No 1 Bar, which is a Working Mens Club, adjacent to the away supporters entrance to the ground on Bloomfield Road is recommended as welcoming to away fans. There are plenty of pubs in Blackpool town centre to choose from. Also recommended the Dunes pub on Lytham Road (Airport End) and the Wetherspoons pub called the Auctioneer on Lytham Road, near Blackpool South Station.
 

By Train

The closest railway station to the ground is Blackpool South and is around a ten minute walk away. However fewer trains stop at this station with most calling at Blackpool North. Blackpool North station is around two miles away and therefore you may wish to jump in a cab to the ground.
