Fleetwood Trams

Fleetwood is one of very few places where trams share the main highway with cars and normal traffic.

Fleetwood Lord Street

The tramway runs along North Albert Street and Lord Street to Fishermans Walk. You can see the tram rails and overhead power cables clearly in the above photo.

This is the line which extends through Cleveleys, along Blackpool seafront to its most southern point at Squires Gate Lane.

Blackpool Transport operate the trams in Fleetwood, officially a ‘light railway’. 

On selected dates, you will also be able to see, and ride on, the old Heritage Trams. They operate during event days and at peak holiday times.

Don’t forget to make a date for Tram Sunday! It’s the one day in the year when Fleetwood town centre is closed to traffic, for a huge event all over the town.

Freeport Fleetwood

No visit to Fleetwood would be complete without a trip to Freeport.

If you travel into Fleetwood by car via the A585 you will pass Freeport Fleetwood Outlet Shopping Centre.

Along with Asda, Freeport is just off the big roundabout as you arrive in the town, not far from Lord Street.

Freeport Fleetwood

It’s an outlet shopping village with something for everyone, including M&S, Next, Gap and many other big brand names and plenty of bargains.

With plenty of free parking it’s also somewhere that you can go if you’ve got a dog. There are lots of benches for the dog-sitter to rest and wait while other family members go shopping. In fact many of the shops are happy for you to take your canine friend in, particularly if he is small enough to carry.
