One of three piers in Blackpool, the Central Pier is home to a lot of local attractions that could keep visitors to the area busy for a whole day. With features like restaurants and the like readily available, as well as picnic tables for bringing your fare, it really is abundantly suitable for a full-day outing for a family. The pier offers a view of the sea that is bar none, as well as fishing, but it goes much further than that.
The pier features a roller rink for old-fashioned fun, steamboat excursions, and a large number of theaters and bars. The pier head theater is home to many famous shows that tourists to Blackpool are sure to enjoy, including most recently, Trevor Chance’s Legends. In addition, there is a small amusement park of sorts, featuring a massive ferris wheel that competes with the Blackpool Tower for best view in the region.
