Central Promenade Blackpool
Ranked #21 of 49 Fun & Games in Blackpool
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 May 2018 via mobile

I have never been a big fan of Blackpool even as a kid but it is sad to say it looks so run down and dirty these days. The pungent aroma of fish and chips seems to be everywhere. I know that some people think it's a great place but for me it's very tired and outdated.

Thank Malcolm R

Tis a fine place to live. I came for a holiday back in 1999 and been here ever since. My kids were 6 then, all grown up now. I want to comment on complaints from visitors about the mess here, most probably on the land side of the prom. Tourist country. Please don't complain about the fish and chip wrappers, burger bags or chicken bones. Locals don't go down there so I guess it must be tourists that make and leave the mess. Hmmm, food for thought, eh ?

...but I haven’t bothered in about 15 years. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised - the promenade is much improved and the new tram system & shopping centre seems to be keeping them up with the times.
