Hello there, some friends are heading to Blackpool at half term. They have not wild camped and are a little afraid of doing so. Could anyone recommend either a really cheap site or somewhere where they would feel safe with a young child on board?
Thanks,Tracey

Can you park on the front/prom during the day free? Going there is a couple of days to see the lights.

There was this Yorkshireman.

He went to Lancashire in a big white van.

On the back of it, in BIG letters were the words 'The Yorkshire Tyke'.

I think he got off very lightly with just a parking ticket.:D:D:D:p:p

HI as you say towards fleetwood ? on the left is a left turn on to the sea front but it is only one way in and out of the prom. you need to go into clevelys from blackpool end and when you hit some light turn left ,i was walking my dog up on the prom on saturday morning and 9 vans parked up over night looks ok to me

Locals tend to give a bit of grief though. When we stayed there we had cars driving down the entire row of vans sounding horns at regular intervals right through the night. I have also heard of eggs being thrown at vans.

Stopped there regular for the past 5 years, never had any problems, other than one late night knock at the camper door and a fellow asked if we were there for the "dogging".

10 vans there last night at cleveleys no problems.Only thing is that the main road by the tramway is closed and using princes way as diversion for about 8 weeks.
