Blackpool South Pier (England) Reviews
Newest Review: ... every kind of machine you can think of. There are the popular slot machines that take 2p and 10p pieces as well as many new, all singing, all dancing computerised games, such as Guitar Hero. There is something for everyone, if this is your kind of thing. There are also cash machines (that charge for withdrawals!) and change machines in various locations throughout the arcade. On leaving the arcade you go onto the pier proper, where you'll find it lined with the sort of attractions that you would see at the fairground. The many stalls include things you have to throw, things you have to aim at and things you have to knock over. Obviously th... more

Although it isn't the biggest of the three piers that Blackpool has to offer (north, South and Central), South Pier probably has the most to offer and as a result is the most visited. The selection of attractions has expanded vastly over the years and now includes an arcade, family pub, many food stalls, children's rides, a series of fairground rides, including the death defying Cat and Mouse ride, and the very popular Adrenaline Zone. Originally called Victoria Pier, it was opened in 1893 and was considered (rather ironic as it now seems) to be the most 'up-market' of the three piers. It had a series of shops and a bandstand. A couple of fires over the years ... Read the complete review

As you know if you have read my other opinions on Blackpool I do like the place! I have just spotted the new categories for each of the piers and immediately felt an opinion coming on!

The English seaside pier seems to be an attraction that is slowly disappearing, but at Blackpool there are three piers and they are all thriving. All three of the piers have free admission and each has it’s own characteristics. The South Pier was built in 1893 and is the shortest of the three Blackpool piers at 285 metres. Originally this pier was called the Victoria Pier. There is a large amusement arcade at the start of the pier, although you can walk on either side of this building onto the pier and miss out the noise and the slot machines. Beyond the arcade is the Seabreeze Café, which sells a good selection of snacks and drinks. ... Read the complete review
