"Don't get robbed." Blackpool Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Pauldelabar

Blackpool Warnings and Dangers: 25 reviews and 21 photos


As with any large town or city, when there are a lot of people all in one place, usually with their guard down as they're on holiday; pickpockets and handbag snatchers abound.

Don't take ALL your money with you. If your hotel has a safe deposit box or safe - use it.

LADIES - beware of bag snatchers. Even in daytime they operate. Use handbags as decorative items, sure, but keep your money and cards etc. ELSEWHERE.

Don't stand the chance of your holiday being ruined. Don't be an addition to the mugging statistics.

However if you do become a victim, inform the POLICE immediately.
