  • Absolutely beautiful views here, stunning sunsets and an enchanting evening at night with the lights display. Lots of entertainment for families and friends, a lovely spot to go. The only downside is how busy it can be but if you don't mind joining the crowds its an amazing place to go for a night of fun and sightseeing.
  • Very popular and overcrowded pier with lots of fun and extreme money spending. Personally I don't like when all kind gypsies make you spending money on stupid darts when they see you walking with kids. Avoid starting chat with them, they are professional. Wheel was spinning too fast for us,so we didn't go. Better take your kids to donkey ride.
  • This pier is by for the best pier in Blackpool out of it and the north pier but I think that the south pier is a tiny bit better. It is great for the family and can be the place to go at night time as there are little places to go with the family at night time. Would definitely recommend especially for a family.
  • Lovely place to be, lots of Fun, Entertainment and happiness. Went with all my family and everyone had an fantastic time. My grandson was on the moon. The place is very old but nicely maintained and all people working on the stalls were very nice and polite.
  • Brilliant children's entertainment on in the pirates family bar from 7pm. My daughter is 2 and loved it, suited children older too. A really enjoyable night.
