Two Wheels and Walking


Patients or visitors who live close enough to the hospital may wish to walk. There are pleasant walks through Stanley Park or from Staining across the The Village Hotel golf course, which takes approximately 25 minutes.


Blackpool and the Fylde coast is relatively flat, which can assist cyclists. There have been recent road Parked bicyclesimprovements around the hospital including advanced stop lines and toucan crossings facilitating access from East Park Drive. An off road cycle route runs between Talbot Square and Staining forming part of the National Cycle Network 62. This route has recently been extended from Woodside Drive, near the Zoo car park, to the hospital.

Cycle parking stands are situated close to most hospital entrances.


There are some motorcycle bays. However, if these are full, please park your motorbike with consideration for pedestrians. Motorbikes that cause an obstruction may be subject to a civil penalty notice and fine.


Security officers regularly patrol the car parks and there is CCTV. However, cycles and motor bikes are left at the owners’ risk. Please ensure that your cycle or motor cycle is adequately secured with a good quality lock.
