Here goes, me and my mate contemplate on going for the whole weekend in August (starting from Fri evening to Sun maybe Mon) to Blackpool, clubs and stuff, my question is what is the best part of August to go there, Cheers.

    We went about 2 months ago, set off early afternoon and arrived there for 2pm. Dropped our stuff off at the B&B and went for a 'quiet afternoon drink'!!!!!

    We walked into one pub and seriously, it was like walking into a club at 2 in the morning! Everyone was trolleyed and dancing about, it was so strange! Great tho!

    Full of hen parties and dirty burds. We had a great time, apart from going into the gaybar on the front, and falling in the roadworks on the way back. Oh and getting in a taxi and asking him to take us back to our hotel, not knowing what our hotel was called, or indeed where it was.

    Blackpool is a ****hole, really tacky but great every once in a while. Pleasure beach the next day was good too.

    I wouldn't want to get into a my town is better than your town argument, but Blackpool is a fun place, it's where people go to have fun, if you see it as that then you won't be disappointed.

    You aren't going to find culture, you aren't going to find a place where you can sit by the seaside in tranquility (well you can, but you know what I'm getting at). It's a good place to visit and have fun, speaking as someone who has has lived here all their life, it's not a bad place to live, there are worse places, there are better places.

    Blackpool doesn't try to be something it's not, it isn't pretentious and you will more often than not get a smile back when you smile at someone. There are places to avoid in the town, just like any town. There are people of an unsavoury nature, just like any other town.

    I guess it's a case of expectation, I'll even bet Kitty has had a least one good time in Blackpool, just like most people who visit

    LMAO, wasn't wanting to start a my town is better than yours discussion. Think it's my age now that I don't like Blackpool, I've always hated fun fairs so the pleasure beach does nothing for me, haven't enjoyed clubbing for years and hate pubs where you have to shout to have a conversation and spill half your drink before it reaches your mouth. Can't say I've ever really loved the place but being on your door step you don't always appreciate what's to hand. For stag and hen parties that want to let their hair down.....ideal. I'm sure RobM will have fun. We do occasionally drive through Blackpool on hubbies trike on a Sunday afternoon so if you see me then wave

    AP and I bopped up there one time and had a heavy night. Taking along our business cards, advertising our profession of "professional heartbreakers", we soon had to become breakers of things other than hearts, namely legs, after flocks of women were literally throwing themselves at us, resulting in APs knee being severly bruised.
