We visited the Central Pier whilst in Blackpool, have to say the stall holders totally ruined it for us and I'll never re-visit the Central Pier, standing with 3 young children we were asked by the stall holder with the cds/strings if we wanted to play, obviously spouting off all the usual crap the kids really wanted to as he had a tatty teddy as one of his prizes, now we know fine well that these things are just a con but it was so hard to say no to the children.

£5 later and 3 of the worst single cds imaginable the kids realised just what this guy was all about, I'm hoping that in the future they won't waste their own money on such crap, their dad handed back the cds and didn't even get as much as a 'sorry mate'.

The people who run these stalls ought to be ashamed of themselves, but then again I'd imagine they'd have to know what shame was to feel it.

Avoid like the plague!!!!!!

Went to see" Stars in Concert" and having seen "Legends show" many times ,didn't know what to expect. The show was fantastic ,kicking off with an awesome "Little Richard" then Madonna who was so realistic it was spooky ! George Michael (wow!) and a very convincing Rod Stewart ! We had a fantastic night and have booked to go again ,please DO go and see this show , you will love it !!

As with all holidays you like to go on the piers but sadly although you enjoy going on them , They all look tired could do with a spruce up and the time we went (June) no entertainment !!

Of all the piers visited,this one is in the most need of investment,to be honest we were glad to leave,to many stall holders shouting at you,they even shouted at my 82 year old mum ,to throw some rings and she would defiantly win a prize,bully boy tactics.......we couldn't just walk past comfortourbly...........
