This Victorian masterpiece has been allowed to go to rack and ruin. I know there has been storm damage of late - particularly over the past two years, but even 2 years ago it was declining fast- obviously due to lack of maintenance. The electric railway which ran the length of the pier removed and the deck roughly patched up... More

This pier does not have as many attractions on it as the other two . However considering what is on offer on the other two this is my favourite pier . On central you have the big wheel which is an exception of course . This pier is a great place to simply take a walk on in the evening... More

Its a shame about the condition of the North Pier. The character of the North Pier is in contrast to the Central and South Pier. It is nostalgic and tranquil. The iron work and seating desperately need renovation work to restore it to it's former glory. A public donation box would help. We spent money on the pier but would... More

North pier isn't as good as south and central pier. There isn't as much to do to entertain the kids at north pier and there is no amusmants at north pier compared to south and central.

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
