Staying at The Vidella Hotel, you will be ideally situated close enough to walk to the lively and vibrant centre, without being in the hustle and bustle of town. You can reach the sea front within 100 yards and The North Pier, Funny Girls, shops, restaurants, pubs, bus and train stations are within 400 yards. The Winter Gardens and Blackpool Tower are just a little further – within 800 yards. We are always available to point you in the right direction, recommend places to visit or offer discounts.

If you can find the sea at Blackpool, you shouldn’t have any trouble in finding The Vidella Hotel. Here are the directions from the M55.

However since Blackpool Promenade has been regenerated and become much more pedestrian friendly, it is usually much quicker to avoid Blackpool Promenade altogether.


We have five free parking spaces on a first come first serve basis. You can call us on 01253 621 201 to check the likely availability of these on your visit to Blackpool. There is also free parking on the street opposite (Yates Street), the street adjacent (Cocker Street – November 10th to Good Friday only), Cocker Square, the street behind (General Street) and 100 yards down our road (Dickson Road). We wouldn’t expect you to remember all these and there are some restrictions on the streets, so please ask at reception and we’ll guide you to the nearest spaces. Likewise, if you are a blue badge holder then please ask, as some areas you use the clock and others just the badge. There is also a pay and display behind the hotel. 24 hours = £5. 48 hours = £6 and then every additional 24 hours is £3.

At Junction 4, exit at the slip road.
At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit onto Preston New Road/A583

0.2 miles
Turn left onto Talbot Road/A586. (Although you are turning left, the right hand gives you a better position.)
50 yards

Directions from the Train Station:

Walking from Blackpool North Station should take 5 minutes even with luggage. Only 300 yards.
Exit the train car park up the ramp with the cars. This will bring you up to Springfield Road, which is a one way street. Do not use the pedestrian subway.
Go straight ahead, against the traffic.
100 yards
Turn right onto Dickson Road. Pass Ladbrokes. Pass the Duke Of York pub.
200 yards
We are on the left hand side after the zebra crossing.
Getting into a taxi means you’ll have to go around the one-way system so could be up to £5.
