I love the history of the place. People have been turning up to go on the rides there for over a hundred years - you can almost hear the sparking of the clogs in wakes weeks along the prom. It's next to the sea and the views from the top of the rides are fantastic. And there's something a bit naughty about Blackpool - an undercurrent of filthiness, a darkside that you can't quite resist.
Plus the rides are fab, and there are doughnuts, trams and donkeys down the road. What's not to like?

|I went on this 6 times. I recommend eating doughnuts after rather than before doing this.|

Plus - exciting news! We've got a couple of versions of Windows 7 to give away! Check back here tomorrow and we'll be having a quick competition....
