We walked down central pier but found it to basically just be a scruffy over priced fairground. Wasn't overly impressed. The family bar sounded good, but we didn't visit on this occasion.

I went here with my girlfriend, her parents our 5 year old son and our baby daughter. There was definitely something for everyone with lots to do. Worth a visit

Nice pier to have a walk along and see a different view of the town. Usual rides, games and food vendors, but with a different feel than the other 2 piers.

it was good if you families or couples, might even be for the stag or hen do but mostly families as its more geared for that to be fair.

We enjoyed strolling along this pier. It's the main pier and really long. You get a good view of the rest of the Blackpool promenade
