This afternoon, after a morning shopping around Blackpool, I decided to explore the piers. Blackpool has three piers, North Pier, Central Pier and South Pier. The view in the photograph below is of the famous Blackpool Tower taken from North Pier. North Pier is more of a traditional pier with a small train or tramway to the end of the pier, a theatre, and people fishing off the end of it. The other two piers are much more commercial and modernised. North Pier is a great place to relax and get away from all the crowds.
