Though the pier itself is in poor shape the entertainment in the Carousel Bar was excellent. Plenty of seating and shelter from the wind. The organists (two when we visited) played a selection of dance music on the organ which was good in itself but several of us got a dance or two in. perhaps not quite the atmosphere of... More

I have just had my daughter’s 5th birthday party at North Pier, Blackpool with Chipper and the partystars. I had initially booked this, months ago on a dealmonster offer and had no idea what I was letting myself in for. I had not been on North Pier for years and I was a bit anxious. I did message David a... More

Yes the pier needs work done to it. Yes it is looking a bit old and shabby now. But what do you expect? It is years old & unfortunately will take thousands to get it back to the standard people expect. Spent a couple hours sitting out in the sun listening to the live organ playing at the end of...

We went to a show on the North Pier and we have always seen great shows there before. The cast were great, but were let down by the lighting/sound team, as at one point the artists were singing in complete darkness as there were no light at all and the sound on the microphones kept going on and off. The... More

This is the worst pier out of the 3 of them. There wasnt much to do at it. You should go to the central or south pier

Best done in the freezing cold to get the full Blackpool effect. Also you must have a go on the vintage carrousel for a feeling of bygone years, there's even a photo shop to dress up in olden day clothes. We love going, always went when I was young and now I'm taking my own children.

Old tired looking. paint coming off railings, main attraction has been closed for some time by the looks of things, walk way very poor. a lick of pain and some general TLC would bring this pier back to life.
