The pier has what you expect from a Blackpool pier - lots of amusements and rides, fish and chips etc. The pier does need a lot of tlc however, everywhere. The classic carousel ride down the pier is fantastic though. Good for family fun.

I love the ambiance on the North Pier. The music is played along the pier, which is lovely. It was so relaxing.

A lot of Blackpool has been updated or restored which has made the pier seem rather tatty, with many rickety boards. Nice to hear an old fashioned traditional organ being played in the tea rooms at the end of the pier

We just miss food but the staff said that the chef would stay on for me and my family as well for another family that was behind us, which I thought that was very nice of them, all the staff were down to earth and made us at home, we had the fish and chips and it was yummy, my... More

Elizabeth R and gillypip have said it all, and I agree with every word. The ticket and seating fiasco at the Collabro concert at North Pier on Sat 23rd August was an absolute shambles, and shame on the Manager for trying to shun the blame. The worst part was when he asked the people with tickets from the Lytham Hall... More

I too attended the night of music with Collabro, Lucy Kay, Jai McDowell & others. The 2 previous reviewers have it spot on - it was an organisational shambles of the first order and created a lot of bad feeling amongst the audience. A few positives: All the singers did a great job, particularly young Amy who (at the tender... More

The owners should really be ashamed of themselves. Blackpool North Pier is a grade 2 listed gem. It has a Victorian Sun Lounge, and a lovely two-tier Venetian Carousel, The wrought iron work and the little kiosks are all period features and charming. This pier is one of Britain's best, yet it is really neglected. Some of the seating is... More

Like gillypip of blackpool I also went to see Collabro on the 23rd August; the show had moved from Lytham Hall and to say communication regarding the conversion of tickets from one venue to the other (the reallocation of tickets) was poor is an understatement. The queues were massive, and the door staff totally inadequate to deal with the problem.... More
