Blackpool South railway station serves the suburban south of the popular seaside resort of Blackpool, Lancashire, England. It is the terminus of the South Fylde Line from, though most services run through from Colne. It lies only a short walk from Blackpool Football Club's stadium at Bloomfield Road. The station is managed by Northern, who operate all trains serving it.HistoryThe station was originally called Waterloo Road when it opened in 1903, at the junction with a newly built express Marton Line direct from Kirkham. It had four platforms (two for each line at the junction) and soon became a busy station. Until November 1964, the line extended north from here to Blackpool Central. There were extensive sidings to accommodate the many excursion trains which came to Blackpool.The Marton Line closed to regular traffic in 1965; its track bed is now the road called Yeadon Way and the M55 motorway.The station continued to handle through trains from Manchester, Liverpool and London until 1970, when these were all diverted to Blackpool North at the other end of town. It was then reduced to local status only, although it kept its signal box, two working platform faces and double track until 1982. The box was notable in that it was located on the opposite side of Waterloo Road bridge from the station and so could not see the tracks & platforms it controlled, instead being surrounded by the disused railway land once occupied by the main line & aforementioned sidings. After the line was singled west of St Annes and the box was abolished, all trains used the former northbound platform and continue to do so to the present day.

North Pier is the most northerly of the three coastal piers in Blackpool, England. Built in the 1860s, it is also the oldest and longest of the three. Although originally intended only as a promenade, competition forced the pier to widen its attractions to include theatres and bars. Unlike Blackpool's other piers, which attracted the working classes with open air dancing and amusements, North Pier catered for the "better-class" market, with orchestra concerts and respectable comedians. Until 2011, it was the only Blackpool pier that consistently charged admission.The pier is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building, due to its status as the oldest surviving pier created by Eugenius Birch. As of 2015 it is still in regular use, despite having suffered damage from fires, storms and collisions with boats. Its attractions include bars, a theatre, a carousel and an arcade. One of the oldest remaining Sooty glove puppets is on display commemorating Harry Corbett buying the original puppet there.LocationNorth Pier was built at the seaward end of Talbot Road, where the town's first railway station, Blackpool North, was built. Its name reflects its location as the most northerly of Blackpool's three piers. It is about north of Blackpool Tower, which is roughly the midpoint of Blackpool's promenade. The sea front is particularly straight and flat on this stretch of coastline, and the pier extends at right angles into the Irish Sea, more or less level with the promenade.
The Grade II listed North Pier is the oldest of the three Blackpool piers. Designed by Eugenius Birch, it was opened on 21st May 1863 by the Chairman of the Pier Company, Mr F Preston. The pier still retains its original Victorian design and magnificence; it is still used today for promenading, and sitting and relaxing in the sun.
Entrance onto the North Pier is FREE and there are attractions aplenty for all the family. Ride the two-tier Venetian Carousel; sit and relax in the Victorian Sun Lounge; have your palm read and your future foretold by the Petulengros; have a coffee and cake in Costa in the Conservatory; enjoy a drink in the Merrie England and party with Blackpool's legendary Joey Blower on weekend afternoons; all the family are welcome in the Carousel Bar where you can have a drink and eat.
North Pier Theatre has the very best in live entertainment; not just during the summer holidays but throughout the year from comedy to dance to variety to concerts... it's fantastic family friendly fun!
