Been going to Blackpool for years will not be returning, paid for a big ticket and its not worth the paper its printed on. Went in the tower on Tuesday felt that we was being rushed though and didn't have as much to do inside, you can only visit the main ballroom once. Went to the circus on the 7... More

Lets be straight here – Blackpool is skint. That’s the view you receive after a visit to Blackpool. The place seems to hang on to what used to be a vibrant holiday town, to now an EU funded landmark surrounded by out of date accomodation with little else to offer. A walk along the front pretty much goes like this... More

Not long after arriving we were practically herded to one of the stalls at the front where you play fixed games to win prizes. The game was to throw 3 rope hoops over some wooden sticks then you choose any prize you want.... More

I always loved going to blackpool as a child and continued to go even into my early twenties. So after not visiting for a good 16 years my husband and I decided we would take my 10 and 4 year old for the easter break. We were excited to see the place again and were sure my children would love... More
