It has taken a long time (& even more money) but Blackpool Prom is looking magnificent! Gone is the straight beach, replaced with sweeping curves & headlands which will house new attractions. Steps down to the beach along the whole length of the Prom have created new seating areas with excellent views of the sea & events such as the Airshow & the World Fireworks Championships. Bikes are available for hire & can be returned to other stations around the resort. The Tower Headland is the last to be finished & will be open by July; this houses a wedding chapel overlooking the sea & the “comedy carpet” … a hollywood-style tribute to famous comedians … with their catch-phrases captured in granite.
If you’ve not seen it yet, it is well-worth the journey.
