This station is situated right at the southern end of Blackpool. It was the closest train station to Blackpool International Airport (now closed as a passenger airport).
The station is unstaffed and has few facilities.
Services from Squires Gates include trains to Blackpool South, and Preston.
The Blackpool Tramway starts at Starr Gate Tram Stop, just a short walk from the station. Trams travel along the Promenade and then onto Cleveleys and Fleetwood.
