Re: Blackpool Rocks

I quite like a day in Blackpool.

I might go for a weekend but I wouldn't spend a fortnight there.

I'm with Lilly on this one.
A weekend would be a laugh but wouldn't want to spend any more time there.

Re: Blackpool Rocks

I canít say I like the place all that much. I loved it as a kid, must admit.

It really does need some major finance to sort the place out, it just seems grotty to me.

With lots of cash chucked at it, some vision and expert planning it might become an attraction again. Until then, Iím avoiding the place.

Re: Blackpool Rocks

Has anyone stayed at The Big Blue Hotel next to the Pleasure Beach in Blackpool?

I've read a few good reviews on it but wondered if anyone here had been.

Is part of the Classic Hotels Lilly .. stayed in a few of their hotels, and always been extremely high quality ... however, not the Big Blue.. suspect will be of the same standard though.

Re: Blackpool Rocks

Well I live here and believe me it really isnt all that bad. Would I holiday here for more than a weekend ? NO Its far to expensive to come and have a week here and personally when they finally put the charge on the pleasure beach I think its gonna do more harm than good.
But in all honesty to live here Yes its far better than back home, even walking /driving around is less depressing than back in ossy and accy.
I have always loved my home town but I really think the way its deteriorated over the last 10 years is bad , and no I wouldnt like to live back there.
I miss the friends I grew up with but thats all, but a lot of them have now moved away too.
Blackpool like many areas has bad parts but they are spending an awful lot of money here to regenerate it and I personally think in the next 5 yrs it will improve dramaticly as a town.

Re: Blackpool Rocks

Great great memories of Blackpool..the best place to be for a weekend.. but these days costs an arm and leg.. you could always get a bed at a local BB but Flasheys time there is now typical. a weekend will cost you £400.. taken for booze and entertianment..which I ain't got... is it still full of Scots and Goeordies?
