I try to be nice, I really do; but Blackpool you are just too much… The ‘front’ or promenade area is a terrible place: windswept, desolate, treeless (in fact devoid of almost any vegetation) and ugly as anything I have seen in the UK. The pier entrances are just trashed mash ups of vile plastic …
If you are staying in the area and looking for accommodation, then the Rysdale Guest House in Ambleside is highly recommended. Good Location on the edge of town (everything with a 2 minute walk) and excellent quality rooms and facilities.
Quick visit to York, seemed a shame not to incorporate a walk round the town… The Minster dominates the whole town and visible from just about everywhere. They want £9 to get in these days, but apparently it costs £20,000 a day to keep the place running.
Always a bit risky weather wise this late in the year, but managed to get some OK photos, more to follow.
