Central Pier

The Promenade Blackpool FY1 5BB 0844 472 451

We say

Central Pier is the one with the Big Wheel, which makes it an instantly recognisable landmark as you make your way up and down the prom. It's also home to a few other traditional fairground rides, including dodgems and waltzers, plus a chippy, ice cream parlour, huge bar and all sorts of arcade games, but if we had to pin down a single reason for a visit it's the lure of 'Stars in Concert'. This live performance tribute show – direct from Vegas, and in residency in the Central Pier theatre from mid-June until the end of the Illuminations – is Blackpool at boldest and brassiest. Where else would have the chutzpah to proclaim "Lady Gaga, Elvis, Freddie Mercury, Buddy Holly – better than the real thing"?
