North pier is currently looking very tired and dated as it got severely damaged during the storms earlier this year. From what I can see its just been patched up enough to open again but there are signs up everywhere stating money is going to be spent renovating and repairing it. I hope this is true as it would be... More

We visited the North pier Blackpool whilst we were in Blackpool to visit the illuminations. We thought that the North pier was a little run down looking and in much need of some rejuvenation and TLC. All aspects were a bit ropy looking and the urinals were reminiscent of the old public toilet blocks that hadn't seen a bottle of... More

Wide board walk; better that the train wasn't on it. Walked to the very end to watch the sunset, which was an experience with mass flocks of starlings soaring and sweeping above. Bit run down towards the far end but old seating still runs along the length of the boardwalk which was nice to see.

The North Pier is my favourite because you can get Pistachio Ice-cream and good chips at the entrance. It is also the start (or end) of the boulevard for me. Decades ago, the pier used to have a tram which you could jump on and get a ride to the end. In the 60's / 70's the pier was coming... More

Great show really enjoyed it but was cold inside the theatre and the ladies toilets could be cleaner. The cast certailnly put in a great deal of energy even though there were not many people in the audience.

I like this pier better than the other two in Blackpool - but it is a bit of a sorry state. I appreciate that it needs updating but it is still the best of the three piers in my opinion. The amusements are smaller but less crowded.

Every penny you spend whilst visiting the north tower helps them to refurbish this fabulous pier which has retained most of its Victorian charm and well worth a visit. Enjoyed walking right to the end of the pier listening to music being played through speakers and enjoyed a cuppa on the pier. Thankyou for a wonderful day.

This pier has all the hallmarks of a traditional Victorian pier with wrought iron seating down each side and an amusement hall. Has seen better days and could do with a lick of paint. It has good views back towards the prom.

Had a great time at this Panto with half price tickets through Deal Monster. Cast were great, fab costumes, the sets were great & the kids were able to sing to the songs especially 'An open door' from Disney's Frozen film. The snacks & drinks were very reasonably priced too for a Theatre. Well done to all of the cast... More

Got the best arcade out of all 3 piers. Because of its location its nowhere near as busy as the other 2. Its got 2 bowling lanes, 2 pool tables, good arcade games and bandits. Room to walk and relax.
