It is so sad to see the state the North Pier is getting into. The whole thing is looking very tired. The sun lounge at the end of the pier is such a lovely old historical structure, but it has become a scruffy, tired , unpainted mess. The Carousel Bar is a really nice area, but on our visit last...

One of the most iconic British piers in its day, the Blackpool North pier is now looking worse for wear. Many of the stands are often shut, it looks patched together in places and yet still has a certain charm despite its shortcomings. The café serves hot and cold food and you do get the second best view (aside from... More

I advise anybody not to visit this "Pier"... and i also use that word lightly. I have never saw a pier like this in my life.. Its an eye sore and a health and saftey hazzard. The decks are rotton.. 75% of the pier is derelict.. The amusements at the enterance are by far the worst amusements in the UK.... More

I love the piers but after the battering it got during the gales in 2014 it is in the process of being done up. No doubt the owners will eventually have it looking lovely.

Enjoyed the short walk of a great pier, I believe there is a train that takes you to the end if you are feeling knackered to walk to the end.

It is a typical English pier in need of restoration but This one has the benefit of a sun lounge which shelters you from the perpetual breeze. A couple of hours will guarantee a tan if the sun is out. A bar is available serving snacks and drinks. Oddly the drinks are cheaper at the end of the pier compared... More
