Central Pier

Depressing.Neglected beyond belief.Needs a revamp and business sense!
Should be a shining example of a great Pier but is far from it!

Sorry your visit was disappointing but on the date you have reviewed the Pier wouldn't have been fully open. By Easter the majority of the rides and attractions were operating and the Pier will be in full swing for the Summer.

The best thing about the pier is the views of the sea views, sands, sea gulls and the tide. Otherwise it is more of a the same as found on the seafront,same food, fish n chips galore, noise, cheap stuff and overweight people.. As I said the veiw and walk around was worth it.

I have been seeing this show every year since 2009 and I love it.

After seeing it twice we went to Las Vegas in 2010 and they have a similar show also called Legends so we jumped at the chance to se it. But to our shock that show was nothing compared to the Blackpool show!

Every year they have 2 separate shows alternate weeks This year we saw Meat Loaf, Bon Jovi, Buddy Holly & Elvis. Meat Loaf was AMAZING and his female singing partner Leanne Furry was brilliant and very funny! Buddy Holly and Elvis were also fantastic and we had a fab night (as always) The only downer this year was Bon Jovi...he was nothing like him and not only that the guy couldn't sing! During the interval everyone in the toilets were talking about how awful he was and I advice the makers to NOT bring him back next year!

the best part of the central pier had got to be the people on it, there wasnt much open on it, but i think the people made it lively, was disappointed that the family bar wasn't open. and the ferris wheel wasn't up either.

Went on a windy day and was great fun watching the sea splash around under the pier. Got some great photos from the pier of Blackpool. It's free so you can spend if you want or just enjoy a stroll people watching.
