Expensive but it's Blackpool

It's outdated, tacky and is typical of 1960s British seasides. Ideal for tourists and locals as it always busy, a must place to visit

We hated being haggled by the market stallers However we took in one of the best shows ever at the show bar. Kings and queen of rock pop and roll was five star entertainment. Jan who ran the bar was great fun and the meet and greet was priceless

Love going on this pier every time we visit Blackpool. It's fantastic for families with plenty of rides for the kids and a family bar with great entertainment. Also some pretty nice places to get a bite to eat. Would recommend this pier for families if you love to have fun. Staff on here are very helpful and friendly

One of Blackpools' famous piers. Something for all ages although a well equipped purse is essential . From the traditional slot machine arcade to shops selling food, this is well worth a visit

Good for families however if you don't like children stay away. Can be a bit chavy! Hands in pocket situation!

As it was winter and the weather was terrible the pier was closed and only the Amusements could be accessed but I have been on the pier many times before so it wasn't too much of a disappointment. There are good views of the pier from the promenade and the beach and remains one of Blackpool's best attractions.

Excellent fun for young or old. We travelled with young children so loved the amusements. Great picture taking locations off this pier. A must visit.
