    North Pier
    1 more image

    Blackpool doesnt do things by halfs and therfore it is no surpirse that the resort has not one but three Piers. These are located along the famous golden mile and equaly devided into North,central and south promanade.

    All the piers offer somthing for everyone and are yet individual in their own way.

    North Pier

    This is most serdate of the three piers, it costs a £0.50 per person to walk along it. Although a charge is made you get vouchers for a free ride on the carousel at the end of the pier or a reduction off beverages.
    Also at the end of pier is a pavillion where acts play for an out door audience and a indoor theatre putting on evening show's .

    Central Pier

    This are more amusments on this pier that will suit the entire family. The entrance is free however there are no reductions on ride or show tickets. Here you'll find a Ferris wheel, walzter and bumper cars. Also there is theatre for shows in the evening. There is also a night club here.

    South Pier

    This pier also has free access and again caters for the whole family. Here you'll find a rollercoaster and bungee type attractions.
    Also here there is theathre doing entertaining shows.

    Blackpool has three piers, North, South and Central. Between them there are theatres, shops, amusement arcades, fortune tellers, Bingo, fairground rides and thrill rides amongst other things.

    south pier, `common as muck` mother would say

    Blackpool has three piers, which in my opinion is just plain greedy
    South pier is the home of one of those white knuckle - brown trousered bungee swings, not for those of a nervous disposition
    The piers used to be famous for the quality entertainment they would attract to their theatres for the summer season, now, as we go further and further away from the glory days of the Variety Shows the gloss and tinsel is somewhat diminished
    North Pier was always the quietest, or as my Mother would say `the least common`, we children called it the boring pier, and would long for the brighter lights and fairground rides of the South shore

    Central Pier

    There are three piers in Blackpool, North, Central and South. Situated on the piers, are theatres, restaurants, bars, amusements and shops. This is Central Pier and as you can see it has a big wheel, and I can certainly say that when you are on it, you can feel those sea breezes!
