It can be a bit rough. My mates and I used to go to Blackpool in our teens ti get drunk and pick up birds. Had the odd bar fight there too.... happy daze.
I would think there would be lots of sea gulls there.
Blackpool, like most British seaside resorts went into decline in the late 1960s with the nascence of cheap package holidays to Spain & The Balearics with it's guaranteed sun and cheap booze.
There was an attempted rebirth as the venue for hen & stag parties but this backfired due to the unruly drunken behaviour of the revellers discouraging families who went there longer term for their annual holidays. It maintained some popularity due to the annual 'Blackpool Illuminations', though once again visitors were discouraged by the massive traffic jams that ensued.
I worked there on a Store Refurbishment a number of years ago. During the daylight it looked very rundown and tired, and as darkness descended the streets became awash with vomit, discarded kebabs and supine drunks. Along with seminar-attending middle-aged sales representatives trying to make most of their few days of freedom from humdrum lives and marital ties desperately trying to 'pick up birds'.
It is said that Hitler loved Blackpool and ordered it not to be targeted as he had plans to make his English 'Wolfschanze' there following a successful invasion. It probably wasn't 'blitzed' as it had no strategic value unlike nearby Liverpool.
