My memories of the North Pier go back fourty years to when I was a child had you had to pay to go on the pier during the day. You dont have to now and that makes it one of the free attractions of Blackpool that's well worth spending your time to look at. The pier was built in the... More

On my family's visit to Blackpool, we has a nice stroll on North Pier after purchasing an ice cream at the entrance. Nothing exciting or thrilling but it was nice to take in the history, stroll along like there is no care in the world and to stare into the sea and forget about life for awhile. Along either side...

Everytime we visit Blackpool we go on the north pier to the Carousel bar at the end to listen to the live piano music (even our 2 yr old son enjoys it) the pier itself is a bit tired looking and could probably benefit from some tlc but the atmosphere is relaxed the drinks/food is reasonably priced and we will...

We took a stroll along the north pier to take in the view of the front and the other attractions. The general appearance of the pier was tatty and the floor was slippery underfoot in places. We wont be taking another stroll in the near future.

As soon as we went in the front entrance our feet stuck to the carpet and it smelt like a pumping station In dire need of some TLC

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.
