Visited on a blustery Sunday afternoon, the promenade is a great improvement, fantastic for a walk, all the usual sights although the fair was a little quiet and there were a few closed up premises, but horror of horrors what on earth were Blackpool thinking of by replacing the lovely old trams ! It was like visiting a stately home and finding all the furniture replaced by IKEA, horrible none descript city trams now run up and down the prom, i believe they were all sold off bar six or so which may come out on bank holidays, a real shame as the Blackpool character as gone, surely a massive mistake, perhaps the tower will be replaced by a concrete block ?

For some reason, my review of Blackpool seafront mysteriously 'vanished' with no reason given.
I would like to re state that I will not go to the place ever again after visiting en route to the lake district with my wife.
The place was populated with dubious looking characters who looked like they were either regular drug users or alchol dependants.
I was on edge and always wary and concerned for her safety because several times we were accosted by these types to buy strange looking 'joke' books which we were reliably informed were 'a bit racist and a bit sexist'. Choosing not to buy these publications we were then sworn at!
Charming.
They stopped us to sell their wares!!!
The place is dirty, smells of ccoking fat and ciggarette smoke. The buildings look tired and in a decaying rusting state and there is a faint atmosphere of menace about the place, luckily we didn't have our kids with us. I wouldn't want to subject them to the experience.
We didn't see a single Police car or officer during the whole time we were there.
The beach was lovely though but I wouldn't ever go back.
There are plenty of other decent beaches to visit.
I will be annoyed if this review is removed, I'd like to tell others about the truth relating to the once splendid 'golden mile' which is now more like a rusty nail.
