Blackpool Gateway

Yesterday morning I trundled up to the aspirationally-named Blackpool Gateway to take a few photos.

The old bus station multi-storey car park has been refurbished and, in sunshine at any rate, looks quite striking. The entrance to it is still hidden round the back which has perhaps contributed to it being a bit quiet. There are cheaper places to park too, although some of the private providers can be like rottweilers. If you have to enter your car registration number into a machine, double check you've got it right and then keep your ticket for a good month in case you need to prove you paid. I remember the good old days when the entire length of the Promenade from Starr Gate to the Manchester Pub was free parking. Nostalgia's not what it used to be...

This is the new council offices block. I'm still trying to get my head round the new two-way, ex-one-way, systems, but do have to admit this looks quite good.
