“A great walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Haven't been in Blackpool for years and was pleasantly surprised by the promenade. All modernised now, with plenty of space to walk or cycle. Can walk the whole distance of Blackpool from Pleasurebeach to Bispam illuminations on smooth surface. Have put in interesting features such as a large spinning ball that reflects the sun and sea. Seating all the way along. Also, stairs go down to the beach. On a sunny day stairs were a good place to sit and eat a seaside treat while watching the sea. Only issue is that there is limited street lighting on the seafront walkway at night from North Pier to Bispam.

“Stars On Concert Rocks!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

This was one show I really wanted to see and I wasn't disappointed. Tanya Anobi is superb as Cher but her Amy Winehouse was eerily so accurate I could have been in Camden and not the Central Pier Showbar. The band was very tight and the compere was hilarious. Both Tom Jones and Simply Red's Mick Hucknell were great entertainment. I am the new owner of the San Diego Guest House and will be recommending this show to my customers. Hope this show returns next year!!!

“Better than it was”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Sadly the traffic around this area can be a bit of a nightmare, especially trying to cross over the road between Coral Island and the Tower, no-one wants to give way, and now it is single file traffic each way, it does tend to get congested, the actual walkway is lovely and you do have to be careful of the new trams, they are so quiet you don't know they are there with the hubbub. When the weather is good it gets packed but all in all a very good day's visit can be had.

“Great time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Enjoyed the rides. The rides were good value when you stayed on for the second time. The only thing was sitting in parts needed updating.
