Its a pier, what more can be said, its a very old pier in great need of restoration, the setting is a harsh environment which means it is getting sand blasted all of the time.

When I last visited the North Pier back in 1999 it was full of fun places to visit, but fast forward to 2015 and its a shadow of it former self. The only shining characteristic this place is the lovely views of South and Central Piers and across the Irish Sea.

In major need of renovation, paintwork shabby, deck boards rotten, bar area is dirty and scruffy, this really doesn't show off the great British seaside very well!

Went to have a Sunday morning stroll down the pier and was able to go through the amusements but then as soon as we got onto the pier a man came over and told us it was closed as was wet!!! Unbelievable but true.

Run down , nothing open and on the blink of an historic breakdown . Begging for anybody to put some life back in it . It's too good of a landmark to let rot

It is a timebomb waiting to injure or kill somebody. How did the council give the arcade, a clean bill of health. Where do i start, cables hanging loose from the cieling, carpet ripped, cieling tiles falling down, holes in the cieling and yes the worst one, electrical sockets next to young childrens rides..just to improve matters, the same sockets...

The pier definitely needs an update, rotting seats and rust everywhere. Such a pity, as it used to be lovely in its day. I can remember how nice it used to be to walk along to the theatre, but the place looks tired and unloved. Come on Blackpool, cheer this pier up!!
