The oldest of the 3 piers, the owners were investing a lot of money into restoring this pier to its former victorian glory but when I went back this year a lot of the improvement work seems to have slowed down or stopped altogether. Nice to see some of the old rotten wooden benches have been replaced but some of... More

Hardly anything on the Pier except a Carousel, a Bar and Cafe with Sunlounge where an Organist Plays. Although I did enjoy listening to the lovely music, there could be more to attract tourists as with the other Piers. Also in quite a bad state of repair, A lot of the planks need replacing and the benches need sandpapering as... More

Really a very nice pier although it doe clearly need some quite significant renovation, lots of broken or missing boards on the sides, seating not suitable for use and lots of missing paint as well as springy and cracked floorboards. The charm and simplicity shines through though and we had a great time on the rides and just wandering up... More

We had not been on the piers for s few years but we're delighted with our visit and we and 6 friends had a really lovely time and stayed longer than planned and enjoyed the cider and beer and the 4guys said hadn't had such good beer for a long time, so a good time had by all. thank you.

It's been a few years since I've been to the North Pier, and when I walked on it yesterday, I was somewhat concerned. Many of the planks appear to be broken, rotten or just very springy, and it was a very tense and tentative walk down. There is now no charge for going onto the pier and the lack of... More

A lot quieter than the other two with a lovely bar at the end, entertainers on for the kids, outdoor seating which is great for sunny days.

The north pier is very minimal by comparison to the central and south piers but even with its simplicity it is in need of improvement.

The first major attraction in Blackpool opened in Victorian times. The arcade is grotty and run down as is the rest of the pier structure. A huge amount of money and time will be needed to get this pier back to its former glory but I did see some evidence of this recently so lets hope it continues. Not a... More
