Blackpool Pleasure Beach car park charge hits £9

Parking at Blackpool Pleasure Beach is currently costing up to £9 per day.

The £1 increase represents a 12.5% rise on the usual maximum of £8 reported last season.

Prices are often varied depending on how busy the park is likely to be, and are also reduced towards the end of many days.

Pre-booking via the Pleasure Beach website is available for £6 – a price which remains constant for any date booked in 2012.

Limited free street parking exists around the Lancashire amusement park, but this is quickly taken on most mornings.
