    What is the age of your party? The town is 5 minutes away for the young ones, and there is a working mans club 2 minutes away for the oldies.

    Well as you come out the beechfield turn right, cross the road and first left is the stanley road social club. There's a lounge on the bottom floor, a concert room in the middle, and a games room at the top, with a couple of snooker tables. The cabaret is normally good, and worth the couple of quid entrance.
    Enjoy your weekend, might see you in bolton.

    I will be back in blackpool on the sunday, i will certainly need a hair of the dog, and will be watching it in the stanley road social club, off hornby road. You will be welcome in there if you want.

    Ewood is roughly a 20 minute walk from the station, but best to check trains back to Blackpool before going for that option.

    I'm staying in Preston over these few days, the last train from Blackburn - Preston is 2330, don't know if you would get a connection in Preston when you arrive though.

    As far as I can see the No.1 bus leaves from Blackburn Bus Station which is outside Blackburn Railway Station and passes by Ewood Park.

    I hope this is of some use to people.

    The nearest train station to Ewood Park is Mill Hill, just walk down the hill after exiting station and there's Ewood!
    This station is on the Blackpool SOUTH to Colne line only. Trains leave Blackpool South at 44mins past the hour and arrive at Mill Hill at 43mins past the hour. All trains go via Preston, eg dept B'pool South 15:44>Preston 16:22>arrive Mill Hill 16:43 (hope that's not too confusing)

    Blackburn station is quite a (depressing)walk to Ewood Park, about 30 mins, a few boozers on the way but none I would go in!

    Trains back to Blackpool/Preston are the 22:27 from Mill Hill to Blackpool South, arrive 23:28 or the 22:24 to Blackpool NORTH, arrive 23:48. All trains stop at Preston

    Hope this helps
