First of all you make your way through the acarde that's full of slots and games. Brilliant fair ground for all ages the you get to the family bar which has fantastic entertainment on for the family till late. Brilliant for the kids and family. Also if your lucky you get to see a wonderful sunset.

Lovely pier. Could do with chairs at the back having some attention. But plenty of rides on wristbands and clean arcade

The main bar looks like it hasn't been upgraded for a while and the whole Pier needs attention, with seats rotting and overall not very exciting to visit

A example of a terrible British pier. Having been to places like Brighton, Bangor and Llandudno all with their totally different but good uses of pier space this pier is dirty, run down and tacky like a lot of things in blackpool.
