Blackburn Train Station

This Victorian-era train station serves the town of Blackburn in Lancashire. It boasts fairly extensive facilities including a ticket office, cycle storage and hire, a car park (paid), toilets, waiting room, and café.

The station lies on the Ribble Valley Line, Caldervale Line, and East Lancashire Line. Services include trains from Blackpool South to Colne (via Preston), Blackpool North to York, and Clitheroe to Manchester Victoria (via Bolton).

Blackburn Train Station is on Railway Road, at the south-eastern end of the town centre and close to Blackburn Cathedral. The Mall, the town’s main shopping centre can be reached on foot in about 5 minutes.

Other attractions and places to visit within easy walking distance of the station include Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery, King George’s Hall, Bowlplex, Vue Blackburn, and Blackburn Ice Arena.

Ewood Park (the stadium of Blackburn Rovers FC) is approximately 1½ miles from the station. Mill Hill Train Station is closer but is served by fewer trains.

The town’s main bus station used to be located outside the station. A new bus station is currently being constructed adjacent to The Mall. It is scheduled to open in 2015.
