158Kidd's review of Blackpool Illuminations



Written on: 12/10/2016 by 158Kidd (1 review written)

Just got back from Blackpool. I have been a few times in the past and really enjoyed the experience even thought the weather was dodgy. On this visit, I stayed at the Doric hotel on the north shore area which I would recommend for more senior age group. Transport by tram or bus very good. Sadly I found the illuminations pretty second rate and a bit of a joke. To recommend a donation of 5 pounds over the top for what u get to see. The tower was not bad and the trams which where decorated outstanding. The rest of the 3 miles well...... Disappointing!!! The town was dirty, rubbish everywhere bins overflowing. As a youngster to see the illuminations was something special. Come on blackpool if you want people to visit the town it needs sorting. I can't comment on the traffic situation but would guess it wasn't too good. The weather by the way was really good. In summary Blackpool seems tired and lost its direction and lost the ability to look after its tourists. The lights are a big draw and have a great reputation. I shall visit again no doubt and hope that improvements can be made and this was a one off experience.
