Getting to Cleveleys
Cleveleys is on the north west coast, mid way between Blackpool and Fleetwood. It's quite easy to get to by road or by public transport - at worst just head north from Blackpool!

There are two main ways into Cleveleys, one through the countryside and one through Blackpool itself.
Leave the motorway network at the M55 signposted for Fleetwood and head down the A585. This is the inland road through countryside and brings you to the back of Cleveleys. This route is particularly useful during the Illumination season when you should avoid Blackpool after dusk because of the heavy traffic.
Continue to the end of the M55 at Blackpool, and head straight forward and down Yeadon Way to the promenade - you can see the rollercoasters at the Pleasure Beach to your left and the tower to your right. At the promenade turn right and follow the coast road out of Blackpool, through Bispham and then to Cleveleys. If you are a visitor and not in a rush, this is a more scenic route.
When you get into Cleveleys, there are short stay pay and display car parks adjacent to the town centre, with free on-street parking in surrounding roads. You can park on Princes Way - the promenade leading into Cleveleys from Blackpool - free of charge, and on Rossall Promenade heading north along the seafront.
If you are new to the area this is perhaps the most simple way to travel! The tracks go in one direction, from Fleetwood to Squires Gate so you can't possibly end up in the wrong place!
Just head to the tram stop in your choice of direction, and trams run approximately every 20 minutes during the day, so you won't have too long to wait for the next one.
The new Bombardier trams run through Cleveleys, but the old Heritage trams are still running throughout the season and weekends in Blackpool.
You can find out more from the Trams page in this section.
Although there isn't a train station actually at Cleveleys, there are a number of choices in surrounding towns.
If you want to detour through Blackpool, you have a choice of Blackpool South (Waterloo Road), Blackpool North (Talbot Road), and the Pleasure Beach.
The nearest station to Cleveleys is at Breack Road, Poulton, 2.8 miles away.

A regular service of buses runs along the coast road from Blackpool through to Fleetwood, along with an inland bus service. There is a bus station at the back of the high street (Victoria Road West) on Rough Lea Road from which buses run that serve the surrounding areas.
