“Pier is in a sorry state!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Only visited the pier to take a short stroll and since I last visited (over 5/6 years ago), the exterior has somewhat decayed a little. The paint has stripped off and it is looking rather disgusting to say the least. The amusements at the pier's entrance are very good and offer lots of different machines for you to spend your 2p's on!

“More neglect on Blackpool Piers!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Another of Blackpools once great Piers has become a sorry state.
The Pier looks the worst it ever has cosmetically.Pure and utter neglect.The owners have no business sense at all.Who on earth would want to.come back again to see such decay?? Spend some money before it crumbles into the sea!!

“An old style pier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

What can you say....this is how a pier used to look, nothing fancy on it...the carousel is a must for kids of all ages and the theatre is good for a night out, used to visit this in the 70s/80s

Only grumble is the pier looks tired
