best place in uK for fun

Is Blackpool still the best place for real fun for a short holiday.
Myself , mates and wife have been for years from one day to one week,
With many "great" memories as they say.

I now feel Im getting boring at 36, and I feel blackpool is actuallly run down, u know litter, brickworks crumbling tackky shops.

But I still have the urge to go there.

Still luv it though

    Poole and Bournemouth!

    I moved down from Scotland there 17years ago and have not looked back.

    Lots for adults and kids to do.

    Monkey world etc. They tried to keep me in once, had to show my drivers license to prove I wasnt a big ginger Orang!

    wife just back from tenby, seems small and a bit refined.


    Is scarbourough for old farts

    scotland has a prob for suppling really fun seaside towns, maybe due to lack of population.

    I saw a ad in our national newspaper in scotland for the best seaside towns in Uk,

    Not one of themwas in scotland.

    i complained about the ad, saying it should have said best seaside towns in England and Wales.

    IMO Blackpool is the only place in the Uk for a seaside town

    where u can honestly run about naked, male or female and not get nicked,

    I have seen it happen more than once.

    I go blackpool every 6wks to see my GF,its a great laugh ,ok clubs for p1sshead music [not drug wise]&good prices compared to here atleast, someone [more likely 10] will usually have a pop but then it could be the fact I'm always out with my GF,her mum and sister and I'm 5.6,you big strong lads might be ok though,no picking on me though ok.

    From a pullig point of view not that I try obviously but you'd have to be gay [and then you'd definatly pull!] or very hideously ugly and actually even then I give you good odds.

    Theres one bar,I'll find out the name where all the barmaids serve in there black skimpy underwear,great fun!....if my GF was'nt staring right at me.

    The gay bars are excelent BTW if you don't getting chatted up by a bloke! I think its funny and it adds to the "count" of people that have approached me so I can boast to mates,yes ok 50% were men and the other 50% were fat wanna be black girls but no1 knows except you 16-000 so shhhh.

    >>A LIVERPOOL LOVE STORY
    >>
    >>A young woman in Liverpool was so depressed that she decided to end
    >>her life
    >>by throwing herself into the Mersey. She went down to the docks and
    >>was
    >>about to leap into the freezing water when a handsome young sailor
    >>saw her
    >>tottering on the edge of the pier, crying.
    >>He took pity on her and said, "Look, you have so much to live
    >>for.
    >>"l'm off to America in the morning, and if you like, I can stow you
    >>away on
    >>my ship. I'll take good care of you and bring you food every day."
    >>Moving
    >>closer, he slipped his arm round her shoulder and added,"I'll keep
    >>you happy
    >> and you'll keep me happy." The girl nodded Yes, After all,what
    >>did she have
    >>to lose? Perhaps a fresh start in America would give her life new
    >>meaning.
    >>That night, the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a
    >>lifeboat.
    >>From then on, every night he brought her three sandwiches and a
    >>piece of
    >>fruit, and they made passionate love until dawn.
    >>Two weeks later, during a routine inspection, she was discovered by
    >>the
    >>captain. "What are you doing here?" the captain asked. "I have an
    >>arrangement with one of the sailors," she explained. "I get food
    >>and a trip
    >>to America, and he's screwing me." "He certainly is," the captain
    >>said.
    >>"This is the Birkenhead Ferry."

    For clubs and bars Birmingham is good. Lots of variety and a bit like London only in my opinion better and not half as badly priced.

    But for a good time I find Torquay has everything. Cheesy clubs, dance clubs, good bars and a good atmostphere. Off down there for an annual pilgrimage myself on 20th with the lads.

    I think Bournemouth is good too but a bit empty during the summer as the population is mainly student or OAP!

    Newquay is good but a bit young now although during the day loads to do and has a vibe unlike anywhere else in UK
