You're on drugs. And so are they.(Original post by Ambitious1999)
Blackpool is Britain's second most visited place by tourists after London. Its is one of the few places that has identity like London has Big Ben Blackpool has its famous tower. London has its red buses and Blackpool has its trams.
I saw on TV how the Japanese preferred to visit Blackpool after London. Many said that they weren't interested in Bath, Oxford or York and that. Blackpool had style and heritage. One even described it as little Paris.
I live about three miles from Blackpool, and I've only seen Japanese around there about three or four times - in the twenty-six years I've lived here. Also if they think it has style and heritage they really are on drugs.
Pft, heritage. Most of the place was built since the 1890s. That's pretty recent as far as heritage goes - my own house is older. Blackpool's main heritage is that it literally gets its name from a cesspit.

Blackpool IS officially the London of the North. Agree? watch

Blackpool is a tacky seaside town. I personally love it for a laugh but it's nothing like London. I wouldn't even compare the two.

Blackpool wins in that case.
Its a tourist magnet like London
It's got culture
It's got identity with its tower and iconic trams
Its architecture stands out such as the Tower, piers and Pepsi Max.
More tourists visit Blackpool than Bath, York, Cambridge, Cotswolds.

The hate comes from the fact that it is a fairly run down and tacky place. Sure, you'll be able to spend a week there, but it doesn't mean the place is any less shite. A lot of the stuff there is run down, tacky and the whole town could use some improvements.
