    The last time I was in Blackpool it was just one big fish and chip shop thats if you could miss out the porn shops along the front.:Eek!:


    Not trying to put you off I guess you can still have a good time in Blackpool. :Wink:

    That's why I am asking for a recommended one :thumb:
    We did find a decent one somewhere in I think fleetwood ? (rec by Gorden Ramsey ) 3 yrs ago :Rofl1: was OK but not as good as G/R spouted, a bit like Rick Steins good but not that good :Rofl1:but very expensive :Rofl1:

    Travel through the illuminations in the usual South to North direction, shortly after the collection point at the North end turn right at the next major traffic lights, the best chippy in Blackpool is located a few yards down the road on the right. Can't remember the name, you walk up a few steps to get in. Best haddock in town.

    Our fav is Bispham and Cleveleys Kitchen, its an eat-in chippy, just behind the Queen's Amusements arcade on the corner of the Promenade and Redbank Road, Bispham. Coming up the prom from south to North, its a right turn at the Trafffic Lights Prom/Redbank Road. Big Tram station at that junction, and an archway of lights across the road cant miss it :thumb:

    Terry,

    Bring up Google Earth, just type them into the top left box.

    Exactly the same with Autoroute.

    As recomended by others on here, the Solarium on the sea front ( south end ) usually has several campers parked around the square it is on
    Toilet block to hand and a great chip shop about 150 yds along the front towards the main town

    If you need to fill with water, there is a hand car wash ( I think it is in Lythom Rd ) quite close.. They charge a tenner to wash a motorhome and will fill your tank for a couple of quidlets :Smile:

    Fish n Chips

    Hi Terry I live in Thornton Cleveleys about 8 miles north of Blackpool, (THORNTON FISHERIES IN THE VILLAGE CENTRE )best chippy by far with a dining room if required, and a shopping centre facing for parking, Best way to find it is North on the prom to Cleveleys centre turn right, through T/L, straight on at roundabout, through the T/L , Thornton centre at the next roundabout, parking on the left, chippy on the right, I live 2 mins away so I know this chippy well.

    Dont forget Harry Ramsdens on the promenade next to the tower. Parking is an issue round there but well worth the effort. NOT CHEAP though :cry:

    sorry lankies out there, but there is no such thing as good fish n chips in Lancashire.
    Could try Cumbria - maybe, but you really have to cross the Pennines :thumb:
    otherwise you just get mouthfuls of soggy batter :Wink:

    That was my first.....and last experience of Harry Ramsdens.

    Overated and overpriced.

    Been in many other small independents which would put Ramsdens to shame.

    It was me that recommended the parking arround the solarium. I can also advise that there is a good chippy just up and over the hill behind the solarium.

    The fish is always nice and the medium chips are big enough for anyone!
