North Pier, Blackpool

1.5
#5 of 6 in Sightseeing in Blackpool
Pier / Boardwalk Tourist Spot
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.
