Central Pier in Blackpool

Central Pier, Blackpool

The Central Pier was constructed for Fun from the start, in the early years the fun was in the form of its dancing facilities. The dancing moved to roller skating in the early 1900's and amusements were added. The jetty was used for steamboat excursions. As dancing became less popular after the second world war the facilities were converted into theatres, pubs and amusement arcades. The jetty was removed in 1975 due to lack of use. Today Blackpool's central pier is still dedicated to Fun. From the ferris wheel, the Legends show, the fairground rides.
