In September 2011 we took a short trip to Scotland and wanting to break the journey up we put in a stop before – Liverpool – and one afterwards – Blackpool.
Let’s start with the nice things about Blackpool. The Blackpool Tower is lovely. Great architecture, wonderful decor, stunning views from the tower’s observation deck.
The Blackpool Tower Ballroom was particularly nice and surprisingly large inside. It was nice to be able to wander about freely and enjoy people partaking in tea or dancing.
Blackpool’s got a pier, which was pretty basic but you’ll not find me saying a bad word about piers as I’m a bit of a fan of piers.
It also had some lovely trams that ran at night, lit up, very pretty.
The rest of Blackpool was a shithole.
