It's excellent. Imagine the worst weather possible and thousands of people who enjoy it. Cheered me up. Puts things in the right perspective! People go there, determined to have a good time, and not even the heaviest storm is going to put them off. You'd have to admire that.
went one January and it was the most depressing day of my life, the population drastically drops in the winter so it seemed like a ghost town. Imagine the vulgarity of Las Vegas but with none of the self-confidence, none of the money and none of the 'wow' factor all mixed together with lashings of rain and grey skies
Blackpool like nearly all british coastal towns has suffered since the decline of british tourism about 30 years ago. At the moment it's a very tacky ugly place, although its starting to re invent itself now and turn itself around, I think it's been granted the only definate gambling lisence in the whole country and will be opening up a massive super casino soon. It's certainly not Europes Las Vegas, Europe's Atlantic City would be a more accurate description.
