“Reminisce about the Blackpool of Old”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Although Blackpool has turned into the premier stag and hen choice of late, the promenade is truly a wonderful walk. When you walk along, you can't help but think of the Victorians, the lights and sounds or this resort in it's prime.

There's lots of attractions, hotels and restaurants to chose from and each section of the promenade has it's own character too.

“Empty”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Becoming old and tired but kids love it. Promenade has been done up beautifully but the shared surface near central pier is dangerous for kids and visually impaired people!

“YUK!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

the only reason to go to this place is to find out how bad it is.. if you like crap, tack and kitch this is the place for you, St Annes, just south of Blackpool is marginally better!

“Blackpool Promenade”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

promenade was always clean and tidy the beech was clean only thing that spoiled it was one dog walker (4 dogs) not picking up after one of the digs fouled the steps, plenty of seating all along the promenade looking out onto the Irish sea
