Not that exciting!

Might have been good in its day, but North Pier is past its best really. You do get nice views back towards the tower though (and pleasure beach!) from the end

Probably my favourite Pier in Blackpool, as it quitter than the other two, so less stall holders hassling you. Really good view down the coast, past the Tower & down to the Pleasure Beach.

It's ok but nowhere near as much going on as the other two piers. All right if you wanted peace and quiet I suppose.

This pier is a blast from the past with its old architectural stye and attractions. They could do with updating it but I expect it costs fortunes to maintain and ecen keep open considering its free entry

Visited the North Pier during a stay in Blackpool. Found it to be a disappointment as the majority of it was closed due to the weather.

the joey blower show on North pier is so funny , as long as you are not easily offended , we go to watch this show at least a couple of times a year and are never disappointed , drinks reasonable but would agree with earlier review - mingling toilets.
