Blackpool is like Marmite I think. Some people love everything about is, some people loathe it and everything it stands for. Me? I am somewhere in the middle.

A Trip to the Fylde Riviera! Review with images

AdvantagesLots to do, excellent attractions

DisadvantagesExpensive, lost its old world charm

"Blackpool is like Marmite I think. Some people love everything about is, some people loathe it and everything it stands for. Me? I am somewhere in the middle. I love sending time by the see, but I can see that Blackpool has lost a lot of the charm and grandeur that it once had in favour of in your face and often expensive fun. That is not to say that you can't have a lovely holiday there or indeed a nice day out, because you can. ==Getting There ..." Read review

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside! Review with images

AdvantagesAmazing atmosphere and more fun than you can shake a stick at.

DisadvantagesA bit grubby at parts but what the heck!

"...not entertain us now but Blackpool still entertains me to this day (30 years on). I now have a 5 year old son of my own who has already visited Blackpool on several occasions and is well and truly hooked on the place just as I was and just the other week I took my 11 month old daughter there, too young to understand it all now of course but she too will soon be a Blackpool addict I am sure. Ok so what does Blackpool have that makes people want ..." Read review

Underneath The Tarnished Reputation Theres Still A Gem Review with images

AdvantagesLots of family seaside fun, a great break with kids, can be done on a budget, fab attractions

DisadvantagesCan be busy in peak, some really tacky areas, some attractions are expensive and not so good.

"...the same negative opinion of Blackpool as lots of people. It had been around 25 years since I was last there, as a child on a trip with my Mum and a couple of aunt's and cousins. My memories included wet, grey and cold 'miserable' weather, finding the B&B we had booked into was awful (when the landlady answered the door with a black eye it was definitely a sign of things to come, and us kids were terrified when fighting broke out on the landing...we ..."

Blackpool Revisited Review with images

AdvantagesPlus ca change

DisadvantagesPlus c'est les memes shows

"...a famous seaside place called Blackpool That's noted for fresh air and fun And Mr. and Mrs. Ramsbottom Went there with young Albert, their son. They didn't think much to the ocean, The waves they were piddlin' and small. There were no wrecks and nobody drownded, 'Fact, nothin' to laugh at at all!" * At about the time when Stanley Holloway had music hall audiences rolling in the aisles with his monologues about the Ramsbottom ..."

WHEN IN BLACKPOOL DO AS THE COMMONERS DO

AdvantagesFun, lots to do, fairly cheap.

DisadvantagesNoisy, tacky, can end up spending too much money.

"...Read on..everyone should go to Blackpool at least once but you need preparation first.. -Take Comfy Shoes It’s a long way down the golden mile and those white stilettos will do your feet no good. If you really insist on wearing them, you can always take the tram or the bus down the mile, or even splash out and get a taxi, but then you will have less money for the arcades and booze. So take a pair of trainers, and if you really want to, ..." Read review
