Good family fun. Relaxed atmosphere with plenty of arcades. Worth a walk down if your in Blackpool. Blackpool front has had a reasonable amount of investment in recent years, they only draw back is the local area is deprived and less than favourable characters are never far away. Will always love Blackpool though for all the great times i shared... More

If you are looking for a tacky authentic blackpool experience then this is the place to go. The amusement arcades are full of those stupid claw machines that you cannot possibly win on, and its all a bit grotty, there is a wee bit of charm to the place but to be honest it takes about half an hour to...

Good as a distraction for half an hour, but nothing much more. The kids want to try everything but you will soon be skint if they do. The refreshments kiosk behind the arcade at the front was cheap and good quality so plus points there. Arcade itself was tired, there are better ones a two minute walk away.

Took the kiddies down, lots of fair rides for adults and kiddies, also lots of stalls to win big teddies. Nice bar at the end of pier to have a drink and look over the sea. Reasonably priced. Aldo has a arcade on there.

The piers (3no) are ok they are a bit run down and in need a TLC. They are worth a visit filled with amusements and places to eat.

Went to watch Kings & Queen of Rock, Pop 'N' Roll. Well worth the money! Brilliant show with Elvis, Freddie Mercury & Michael Jackson. I dare you not to get up and dance in the aisles. If only adults going book the bar area where no kids are allowed. Drinks are reasonably priced too!

I like Blackpool and always have done. It gets a lot of stick but its a nice little family break or a romantic getaway on a budget. Everything you need is local and you're never far from a place of interest whether going for a day out or staying a few days its well worth going to.

Again so very sad to see the pier in such poor state the whole thing needs a total restoration seating around the edge of pier filthy, rusty and poorly maintained the boardwalk is in disrepair so disappointing to see everything in such poor condition come on Blackpool council get your act together and spend some money.
