Blackpool (about 150,000 inhabitants) is a tourist centre on the Irish sea in the north-west of England. Blackpool was the only town in the UK that retained its trams after 1962 and was therefore the only tram in the country for 30 years, primary for tourism purposes. It became a serious mean of transport again by purchasing the Bombardier Flexity Outlook 2 low-floor trams in 2012. Today, these vehicles operate at a 10 to 12-minute headway. The historical vehicles are still operating temporarily as a tourist attraction.
The trams as well as the buses are operated by → Blackpool Transport
