Hop on, hop off heritage tours to return in Blackpool for Anniversary Weekend

It’s a weekend which is penciled in to the diaries of many a Blackpool tram enthusiast at the start of the year and its back for 2021! The Anniversary Weekend – which will see the tramway celebrate 136 years – will be taking place on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th September 2021 and although at a smaller scale than events up to 2019 should still have plenty of tram action to keep you entertained!

Over the two days the following is scheduled to take place:

  • 6 trams operating a hop-on, hop-off timetable
  • Display of trams on Blundell Street
  • Shop Tram on Blundell Street
  • Selection of bus tours

With hop-on, hop-off tours being operated again the weekend will also see the return of the Heritage Day Ticket, although with a slight change to how it was before as well as a preice increase. Costing £15 for adults and £7 for children this will give you unlimited travel on board not only the daytime heritage trams on that day but also the modern trams and buses as well. It doesn’t include travel on illumination tours. The ticket can still be purchased on board any tram or bus on the day.

While the day ticket has seen a not insignificant rise since it was last available it still provides good value for money to allow you to enjoy the six trams which are planned to be in operation each day.

More details of the weekend are due to follow closer to the time. In the meantime Blackpool Heritage Tram Tours continue to run on a daily basis for the rest of this month and then from the start of September its Illumination Tour time which includes tours on switch on night for the first time in many years.

    Will be interesting to see whether “Day Tickets” ever return beyond the flag ship events mind. Part of me wonders whether given the direction of travel not likely. Seems quite sensible to exclude Light Tours as well.

    Moving forward perhaps we will see a 2 Car Hop on/Hop Off Tour Service (with a a stop added in between Tower & Beach gained by loosing one of the existing heritage stops) along side a B Fleet Service with booked “coastal” & “promenade” tours.
