Blackpool North Pier (England) Reviews
Newest Review: ... donuts, ice cream or a drink just outside the entrance. Entry is via the amusement arcade or by cutting around the side of pier. If you visiting with someone in a wheelchair or with a pushchair, I would recommend using the side entrance as there is quite a number of stairs to navigate from the arcade onto the actual pier. Aside from this obstacle, the pier is otherwise flat and suitable for wheelchair users. Those who cannot walk well may find the journey to the end of the pier quite daunting as it is long walk. Design wise, it is clear that North Pier is the oldest and less modern of all three piers. It has been well maintained, clean an... more

Those who have heard of Blackpool are likely to be aware of the three piers on the seafront. During our most recent trip to Blackpool, we visited all three piers and whilst North Pier wasn't the top of our list, we were looking for a way to kill some time on an early Sunday afternoon and were in the area. Here is our experience of the pier. ~North Pier, Blackpool~ North Pier is approximately 450 yards from Blackpool Tower and is serviced by both buses and trams. Opened in 1863, North Pier is the oldest pier in Blackpool. It is also the longest pier at 500m in length. North Pier extends out over the Irish Sea and is a Grade 2 listed pier. The pier is ...

Of the three Piers in Blackpool, this is both the largest & the oldest. On the 21 May 1863 pier was officially opened to 20,000 visitors with a grand ceremony. It was designed by Eugenius Birch (his second Pier) & is the only one of his piers still in use today & as such is a Grade II Listed building. The Pier today functions as a Leisure Pier. At the very head you will find a video games arcade, the "Merrie England Bar" & a gift shop. People are allowed to walk up & down the pier & sit on it, although there is a small charge for entering. At then end of the pier you will find some fair ground rides including a Carousel. You ... Read the complete review

If you think about the main English seaside resorts then the chances are that they will have a pier. There is something very quintessentially English about seaside piers and in Britain they are largely restricted to England, with a handful in Wales and none at all north of the border in Scotland. Blackpool in the north west of England is unusual because it boasts three different piers. The North Pier, Central Pier and South Pier. As its name suggests The North Pier has the most northerly location of the three. It is also the oldest pier in the town and at 503 metres long it is also its longest pier. Eugenius Birch was drafted in to design The North ... Read the complete review

The North Pier is my favourite of the three piers at Blackpool. It is how I believe a real seaside pier should be. Originally this pier was called the Blackpool Pier and it is the oldest (1863) and longest (402 metres) of the three Blackpool piers. This is a pier to just stroll along and really enjoy the sea air. There is a small amusement arcade at the start of the pier, where there is also a coffee shop and a few other small shops. The pier is a traditional open promenade with wooden flooring, where you can see the sea through the gaps in the planks. All of the way along the pier on either side there are seats where you can just sit and ... Read the complete review

I do like these new categories for the Blackpool piers! I started with the South Pier, which is my favourite, and now I thought I’d have a go at one on the North Pier too. Blackpool has three piers cleverly named the North Pier, Central Pier and South Pier, all of which have free access at all times. The North Pier is situated at the end of the main part of the town, just before you reach the Metropole Hotel, and can be easily reached by the bus, which runs along the seafront, or from the famous Blackpool Trams, which stop right outside the pier. As a point of interest the tram stop outside the North Pier is also the stop where you board ... Read the complete review
