St Annes is a fairly easy place to get to, and is well served by main roads and public transport.

It's quite a direct route into town from the main motorway network, from Blackpool and from Preston - you can find out more on the page about travelling to St Annes by car.

The tram service on the Fylde Coast ends at Starr Gate at the southern edge of Blackpool, and from there you can pick up the bus service to travel into St Annes. There are stops right in the centre of town, making it really easy to get around for both locals and visitors.

St Annes has its own railway station, just off the main shopping centre of St Annes Road West. It's on the Blackpool South to Preston railway line and like most of the others in the area it's a Victoria station that opened in 1876, one year after the resort of St Annes had started to be built. The station is managed by Northern Rail and trains run between Blackpool South and Colne.

From Monday to Saturday there is generally an hourly service westbound to Blackpool South and eastbound to Preston and beyond (to Blackburn and Colne).

On Sundays there is also an hourly service in each direction from mid-morning between March and the beginning of November. No service during the winter months.
