Blackpool Promenade is about as tacky as they come. Yet many people head here in their tens of thousands every year to get drunk and fall over after consuming too much alcohol. If you like that sort of thing, brilliant. Otherwise, it's pretty dire. If you're taking kids, keep them away from the Promenade at night because it's not a place for children.

Although it's a holiday destination, Blackpool can be pretty grotty, with some of the worst suburbs in the country.
