Inspirock Rating:
1.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Built in the 1860s, North Pier is the oldest and longest of three coastal piers. Although originally intended only as a promenade, competition forced the pier to widen its attractions to include theaters and bars. Unlike Blackpool's other piers, which attracted the working classes with open-air dancing and amusements, this pier catered to the "better-class" market with orchestra concerts and respectable comedians. Now you can enjoy numerous attractions, including a palm reader, an ice cream parlor, the North Pier Theatre, a Victorian tearoom, an arcade, and the Carousel and Merrie England bars. Be sure to book tickets ahead of time for shows and special events. See North Pier and all Blackpool has to offer by arranging your trip with our Blackpool trip itinerary builder.

  • Walked to the end and if ever there was a depiction of a relic of the past this was it. It might have been 11 am on a fine sunny morning but it was just so uninviting. 
  • Walk down the pier early in the day, a lovely experience. Renovations on going as upkeep must be high 
  • Not a lot diong down there a train that runs up and down the pier and a couple of things for the kids to do and thats about it.
