Anyone been lately? We just been, its so run down these days and so full of arsonists. I will never be going back. We were staying close to a massive hotel that was set on fire which ruined our holiday - I just cant believe how rough the place is.

we been loads of times, and enjoyed it - but all the fires there have been and the massive one at the Grand Hotel that ruined our holiday made us fear for our safety there

defintely - we were staying opposite that hotel that was on fire. Blackpool council were utterly useless too - we had to sleep in the leisure centre and they only found us a hotel at 5am (after spending 5 hrs in the leisure centre with a child) We were not allowed to go back to the hotel at all this week -although the council told us to get out stuff and go and that they would not help us. Worst holiday I ever had!

Glasgow's awesome these days - its reputation of years ago probably still loses it some tourism but i would say to everyone " Visit Glasgow & you will be in for a nice surprise " ( any chance of a job Glasgow tourism ) :whistling:

Lest be honest, most of Britain is a **** hole now:-D We are letting too many immigrants in when there is not enough job or housing for the population thats here.

I only go to Blackpool for the lights and then stop only 3 hours max as thats enough.

I cant see it getting any better either, all down hill from here me thinks:thumbsup:

Apparently the fire damaged the phone mast so I've been getting a crap signal for a week now!
Note: I live round the corner from Grand Hotel

I had many a holiday in Blackpool when I was wee and I have really fond memories of the place

As an adult I have been on many occasions and the last time I went was last year

Yes I was shocked at how run down it is

But all in all...I love Blackpool

I guess I always will :thumbsup:
