Welcome to the sunny North West town of Blackpool. Renowned for its tower and its nightlife. Although the Berserk tournament doesn't give a player much spare time to sample the delights of this town, if he/she turns up on the Thursday before the tournament (as I normally do), they get a chance to see the town.

Athough it's off-season when the tournament is on there is enough to see and do. On this page you'll find some of the places an ASL player may frequent when they get time during their busy competition schedule.
