The beach and sea front is lovely clean and pleasant, but in the town is very different there are homeless people living in doorways, sleeping in groups , fighting, sleeping outside of shops like iceland , this is not a place i would take my son and its not safe to be out on your own, so please take care.

Drove to Blackpool today, our intention was to have a wander then see the illuminations this evening. What a scruffy untidy run down place it has become. Called in for fish and chips on the front only to be joined by a flying rat whist we were seated inside. The majority of hotels on the front look tired and unwelcoming,... More

40 year's ago I always used to say, if I won pools I'd move there, in one of them big houses up past pleasure beach. 40 years on I can't think of anywhere I'd rather not live. What a dump it's become, I know, kids love it there and I can understand that. But look at the place, beggars everywhere,... More

Went in the tower on Tuesday felt that we was being rushed though and didn't have as much to do inside, you can only visit the main ballroom once. Went to the circus on the 7... More

Lets be straight here – Blackpool is skint. That’s the view you receive after a visit to Blackpool. The place seems to hang on to what used to be a vibrant holiday town, to now an EU funded landmark surrounded by out of date accomodation with little else to offer. A walk along the front pretty much goes like this... More
