What About Train To Fleetwood?

I am seriously considering going to Fleetwood on the train next week instead of by car. Train to Blackpool then tram up to Fleetwood! Just found out that a Saver Return from Widnes costs just £11.00 which is not bad at all I dont think. Here is the deal:

Leave Widnes at 11.09 to Warrington Central. 40mins to walk across to Bank Quay. Leave Bank Quay at 11.52 to Preston, change there and get to Blackpool at 13.00.

Coming home, leave Blackpool at 18.42 to Preston, change there and go to Warrington. 25 min walk across to Central station, and get back to Widnes at 20.49.

Anybody fancy joining us? Should be a good day out, plus having a few beers may make Fleetwood's ground more appealing!

Doesn,t the tram take about 1,1/2 hours from Blackpool to Fleetwood, that is unless you are on the Rocket.

Besides via Warrington wont be that bad. Have 40 mins to walk across in the morning and of the night, we could always stay in warrington in some bar for an hour or so. Also are you sure that it takes 1.5 hours from Blackpool to Fleetwood on the tram? If so, we will get the bus!

Sorry I have just looked at the tram timetable, it appears to take 30 mins from North pier to Fleetwood port.

Sounds good.I really want to go,but I don't fancy going on a journey like that on my own,due to the fact that my mates are going to watch other teams on Saturday.I'll consider it.
