I agree with Kath, its definately Blackpool. If you look closely there are support pylons for the overhead tram lines,and the car registration is TJ 1877 a Lancashire registration.

I still remember the 1970s when Blackpool prom was heaving with holiday makers...but sadly these days is really struggling. My mum used to acommpany either her granddad or grandma to Blackpool as her own mum was running a shop in Wigan and couldnt manage the free time.
