What to expect on the day

Take the shorter 2km walk, which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs, for a gentle stroll along the coastline, turning around by Manchester Square tram stop. The longer 7.5km walk continues down the Promenade to the Mirror Ball, before returning to the event site. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change. 

All routes will start and finish at Tower Headland beneath Blackpool Tower, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Amongst the excitement, take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for and leave a message on the Memory Tree and watch it blossom through the day.
