Blackpool Illuminations

Visit 17th Sept 2011

Had a great day, however the town council needs to get it's act together 9 for 8 hours parking is very high for what is tarmat waste land with poor lighting lots puddles and 20 year old ticket machine which are not working.

Town shop and pulic buildings look very old and tired, a lot of money has been sent on the steps and sea front which by the look of the sea green colour may of been poorly sent, ref south side south pier if the rest goes like this then look out.

Blackpool Illuminations, not as good as they have been also looking old in places and danagerus saw one length blown down and hit a visitor not something you want to see, girl looked OK but very unhappy. Only saw one lit tram, very good been only one!!

Value for money, well I am OK but i would have to say very costly, you get the feeling it's a money making machine and has forgotten the real meaning of the sea side town to bring joy to visitors, Hotels seem to still have the right idea.

Please do not get me wrong it's a great place to visit, but 6/10 must try harder.
