Central Pier

With its array of attractions, amusements, shows and shopping, Central Pier is at the heart of the Blackpool coastline.

The amusement arcade at the front of the pier is full of the latest gaming machines and attractions. From roller-derby to hi-tech simulators, there’s never a dull moment.

Central Pier is home to Blackpool’s world famous “Big Wheel” and Fun Fair. Dare you try “The Extreme” or give the Waltzer a Whirl? For the little adventurers there’s scaled down versions of our white knuckle favourites.

Just underneath the Big Wheel is the Pirate's Bay arcade packed full of the latest video, prize and gaming machines.

At the end of the pier is the Family Bar "Pirate's Bay" with FREE entertainment every weekend and throughout the school holidays to suit the whole family. From magic, games, competitions, prizes, disco, singing, kids karaoke, unicyclist and a UV puppet show – it is Blackpool’s number 1 destination for family fun!

The huge bar and entertainment area is dedicated to keeping children occupied and having fun. The bar features its own amusement area, Captain Cook’s food kiosk and a toy shop. It is the perfect child friendly attraction for a relaxing afternoon or evening.

The amazing Central Pier Showbar is perfect for all the family, with tributes to musical legends Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and George Michael! 4 acts per night.

Join in the family fun on Central Pier!
