Central Pier


Built after the North Pier, the central pier is the place for Family fun with game stalls, arcade, rides, including a big wheel, and more.

Central Pier

Image

When the North Pier was constructed it proved to be so successful that a company was formed in 1864 called the South Jetty Company. The pier was constructed by the same contractor as the North Pier and was 460 meters in length. The actual pier was 340 meters in length but an additional Jetty was 120 meters in length that was used during low tide.
The pierhead theatre was modernised in 1986 and eventually came to be known as "Peggy Sue's Showboat". A striking addition came in 1990 when a 33 metre high Ferris wheel was erected, a half-scale reference to the Victorian attraction that had been part of the Winter Gardens complex a century earlier.

Blackpool's central pier is dedicated to Fun. From the ferris wheel, the Kings and Queens show, the fairground rides, the game stalls, Pirates Bay family's bar. A more recent addition is the Terrace bar on the side of the pier on the Promenade.

These include working no more than six days a week between 10am and 7pm, with one full day of rest (usually Friday), a minimum of an hour's lunch break and a donkey health check at the start of the summer season to ensure the animals are fit.
In 2008 for the first time a weight restriction has been put on riders. A child (under 16) must weight less than 50kg, i.e. 8 stones.

The theatre saw its centenary in 1994 and a restoration project was begun in the 1990s that was completed in 2007 after fifteen years of work and about £3,000,000 of investment.
In 2006, the Grand was named the United Kingdom's National Theatre of Variety. The title was awarded nationally by Equity who staged an all-star gala performance to celebrate the theatre's new accolade.

Formed in 1973 to save the building from demolition, the Friends of the Grand supports the Grand Theatre and its programme of events. Funds were raised in many ways, including Midnight Matinées; all part of the bid to save the theatre. Early Friends included Violet Carson, Alistair Cooke, Ken Dodd, Leslie Crowther, Timothy West, Prunella Scales, Billy Pearce and Johnnie Casson. They now raise funds from subscriptions and social events to finance projects within the theatre.

Little Marton Windmill


It is familiar to millions of travellers due to its location on the principal main road into Blackpool, just by the end of the M55 motorway.

Little Marton Windmill

Image

Little Marton Windmill was recorded on Yates map of 1786 as a post mill. The land was owned by the Clifton Estate, together with the fishery rights of Marton Mere, which lies in the hollow between Marton and Staining Windmills.
The current mill is actually a rebuild of another tower mill, when in the1830s widow Nancy Whalley was given the chance to rebuild the mill that she and her son John were using. Any bricks that were needed had to be bought from the local brick works nearby, and any salvaged material also.
Recently, with co-operation between Blackpool Council and The Friends of Little Marton Windmill, it has become possible to view the interior of the mill, and the remaining original machinery, whilst enjoying a unique exhibition depicting the story of windmills across the Fylde.
The story is told of how the mill was saved into preservation as a memorial to popular local author Allen Clarke, was adopted by the town council, and eventually opened to the public by the Friends group.

Time: Sundays from 11:00 to 16:00

North Pier

North Pier is the oldest and largest of the three coastal piers in Blackpool. North Pier was officially opened on 21 May 1863. Although the pier was primarily for leisure rather than seafaring, a landing jetty was built at the end in incremental stages between 1864 and 1867. These works increased the pier's length to its current 500 metres. North Pier is one of the few remaining examples of Birch's classic architecture and as such it now enjoys the status of a Grade II Listed building. It was also recognised as "Pier of the Year" in 2004 by the National Piers Society.

The current theatre was built in 1939 and can seat 1500 people. See our Shows section to discover the shows at the theatre.

South Pier

The South Pier was opened on Good Friday, 1893. A 3,000 capacity Grand Pavilion opened on 20 May. Two fires in six years changed the pier dramatically. First in 1958, a fire damaged the Grand Pavilion, followed by a further fire in 1964 which completely destroyed it. It was replaced with a theatre. In 1963 the Regal Theatre, at the entrance, was converted into the Beachcomber Amusement Arcade. The pier head theatre was eventually demolished and replaced by a white knuckle ride in 1998.
Today the pier is a great mix of entertainment for all the family. From the entrance arcade with its big top roof, the traditional stalls, the candy floss and ice cream shops, the fortune teller, the great Laughing Donkey Family bar, then to the rides.
