Blackpool Air Show returns for 2022 and will be held over the weekend of Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 August.  The show will feature some of the world’s finest military and civilian aircraft performing over the iconic seafront.  To complement the aerial programme, there will be plenty to see and do on the ground with a wide range of stalls, attractions and food concessions in the Air Show Village on the Tower Festival Headland.  The event is free to enter and attracts up to 100,000 visitors annually.

Our journey will take us from London Euston and pick up stations along the West Coast Main Line to Preston, before we turn west to reach Blackpool North, just a few minutes walk from the promenade.  You will travel in First Class comfort in our InterCity coaching stock, hauled by one of our iconic Class 90 locomotives, long associated with our route.

With nearly five hours in Blackpool, take the opportunity to walk along the Promenade as you enjoy the air show, or take a ride along the coast on the famous Blackpool trams.  The wonderfully restored heritage trams supplement the modern fleet during the air show weekend.  Or for a more exhilarating afternoon, visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach with a wide range of thrilling rides and spectacular shows to suit all ages.  And of course, a trip to Blackpool wouldn’t be complete without taking a visit 380 feet into the sky to the top of The Blackpool Tower, where you can look out into the Irish Sea and see the famous Promenade below you.
