Parking in Central Blackpool
It can sometimes be challenging to park in Blackpool centre as many of the on-street parking bays are classed as 'multi-purpose' which means that the usage and restrictions on these changes at different times throughout the day. Blackpool parking charges also vary depending on the restriction, however, there are a wide number of Blackpool parking permits you are able to apply for if you regularly park in Blackpool. When parking your vehicle, check the signs for the bay you are intending to use so you don’t encounter any Blackpool parking problems and aren't issued with a Blackpool parking fine.
Additional parking restrictions to look out for are:
- Pay and Display bays where you can park in Blackpool town centre charging £1.20 per hour
- Double yellow lines, where you can't park
- Single yellow lines, where you can only park at some times. Be sure to check the signs when parking on these
- Kerb flashes showing loading restrictions
On the YourParkingSpace map, we make sure that we only offer parking spaces with no restrictions so you need no permit and can rest assured you won’t get a Blackpool parking ticket.
If you’re planning a day trip from Blackpool, head to Morcombe Bay, famous for its seafood. The idyllic town of St Anne’s-on-Sea has a great array of delightful shops, or if you’re feeling in need of some refreshment – head down to the pretty bathing pools. Lancaster is also only a short drive away, where you can take in the ancient Roman sites whilst admiring the Lancashire country views.

A Blue Badge entitles the holder to concessions for on-street parking, including free use of parking meters and pay and display bays, and exemption from limits on parking times, although time restrictions do still apply.
Badge holders are advised to check individual car park tariff or notice boards for Blue Badge concession details. If none is available, you need to purchase a pay and display ticket to cover the length of your stay. Take care to clearly display the Blue Badge in your vehicle, showing the expiry date (not the photograph), with the clock set to display the time of your arrival.
A valid pay and display ticket should be displayed if you are parking for longer than 3 hours.
Blackpool Council also recognises Blue Badge use within some council-run car parks and allow a 3-hour free concession in these stated locations.
A Blue Badge must not be used to park in any of the following places:
- Where a loading ban is in force (shown by yellow kerb dashes)
- Where there are double white lines in the centre of the road (even if one of the lines is a broken line)
- In a bus lane during its hours of operation
- In a cycle lane
- On a pedestrian crossing area
- On a footway or pavement
- Next to a dropped footway or on a raised carriageway where pedestrians or vehicles need access to the road
- In a bay marked for other types of vehicles, such as an ambulance, taxi or loading bay
- In a loading bay, in a residents bay, in a business bay
- In a permit holders only bay
- Personalised disabled bays
- On school “keep clear” markings
- On a bay or area where parking has been suspended e.g. with yellow signs
