Visited the pier as you must with any visit to the seaside, and was very disappointed with the state that it has been allowed to fall into. Very sad to see and worrying that it may be left to a point that it will be too late.
Wooden benches rotting, paint peeling, dirty overflowing bins, tatty buildings, shabby fairground rides.
Could be a really bright and cheerful place with a bit of paint and tidying up. Really grotty in the cold light of day.
Blackpool is working on a few areas; the tower being refurbished, the promenade, trams and the football ground area but so sad to see an old british seaside tradition being left to rot.
Was busy with loads of families and visitors so would have been lovely to have seen it looking bright and cheerful.
It just seemed to be that all they wanted was for money to be shovelled into the fairground rides. Fed up miserable staff on the rides and in one of the food outlets. The only enthusiasm was the constant harassing from the sideshow stalls as you walk up.
Very very sad to see
