The work pays homage to more than 1,000 comedians and writers, and spans across 2,200 sq m (23,680 sq ft). More than 160,000 granite letters, in a number of different typefaces, are embedded in concrete, displaying classic lines. The location provides plenty of bench seating, allowing you to enjoy the jokes and one-liners.

  • Been a while since I have been into Blackpool so first time to see this. Some great quotes, with time spent guessing who they were from. bigger than I expected too.  more »
  • Funny and free, great way to spend an hour and have a laugh whilst on a walk on the promenade,one of our favourite bits of the trip  more »
  • There's literally nothing there. Just a square on the ground. There's a light show in the evenings but it is a bit boring  more »

  • If you're of an older generation then this will tickle you (tickle stick not required). Plenty of fun, nostalgic quotes if you don't mind random people walking over them whilst trying to read. Loads of memories of classic phrases. A nice freebie in a very commercial environment. Nice location opposite Tower & plenty of space to sit around & enjoy the ambience.
  • I love looking around here. I always find something new.
  • Interesting comedy carpet, loads of famous quotes and sayings with the Blackpool Tower overhead. If you're in Blackpool as a tourist it's worth going to see if you're nearby.
  • Why would you want this? It's slippy, it's pointless, it's ugly and it's copying Morecambe. I just think it is plain stupid.
  • i think i give 1star because the carpret is hoorrible
