Blackpool Tower is a tourist attraction in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, which was opened to the public on 14 May 1894. Inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, it is 518 feet (158 metres) tall and is the 120th tallest freestanding tower in the world. Blackpool Tower is also the common name for Tower buildings, an entertainment complex in a red-brick three-storey block comprising the tower, the ground floor aquarium and cafeteria, Tower Circus, the Tower Ballroom and roof gardens that was designated a Grade I listed building in 1973.
Better (and different) than I remember. Tickets seem expensive but you can easily make this a half to three quarters day out. The view from the top of the tower is great as is the glass floor and wall. 4D cinema adds something a bit different. Added bonus of visiting what is a historical building as well as an attraction that is fulfilling its originally intended purpose.
There really is something for everyone at Blackpool Tower. There is the circus with the amazingly talented Mooky and Mr Boo not to mention the various world class acts they bring to the show every year not to mention the circus museum to view whilst arriving. The world famous Tower ballroom which BBC strictly dancers have graced the dance floor and the tunes from the Wurlitzer organ. There is Jungle Jim's play area for your little monkeys to let of steam if the weather outside does not permit. Move on up through the Tower admiring the architecture and decoration on your way to the 4d experience and top of the Tower where you can enjoy the views and try a cocktail in the 380° bar.
They've padded out the experience with a 4d movie which is a nice e touch. At the end of the day, if you get good weather, there are stunning views from the top and it's fun to stand on the glass floor. Don't bother paying if it's cloudy!!
A must see Blackpool attraction. The tower overlooks the entire city. The glass bottom is one of a kind, and very scary. Visit the nearby Winter Gardens. You will love it. We had such a great time in Blackpool. There is so much to see, many fine restaurants, and great Hotels.
Luckily we had a beautiful but cold clear blue day so got a fantastic view from the top of the tower. The glass floor gives an interesting view of the ground below. Some really interesting information about the tower and a fun 4d show.
The Blackpool Tower is a great place to go and visit. There are lots of attractions to go and see for all members of the family, young and old. A journey to the top of the tower is a must and if you are feeling brave standing on the glass panel looking down is quite an experience. You can climb the stairs higher and higher up the tower which affords even great views of the coast and surrounding area. I liked that there were no time pressures and could spend as long as you like looking around, plus all the staff are friendly, helpful and informative, giving you information and facts as you move around the complex.
Great iconic place to visit when you go to Blackpool or the surrounding areas. Starts with a brilliant 4D movie followed by a lift that's about a minute long whist getting told about the tower. At the top there is a beautiful view with a brilliant glass floor around the edge which is so fun to stand on. One child laid on the floor in a star shape whist her mum took a photo others got told off by there mum for going anywhere near the structurally sound see through floor. Complete with a tiny bar of cocktails and mocktails. It was a fun experience that I'd recommend to anyone who's going.
Great iconic building in Blackpool which is well loved. The circus is fantastic and has amazing acts!! No animals. Not a cheap day out but nice for a treat. Going to the top of the tower is expensive for what it is. It’s a good experience to do at some point in your life though especially if you are scared of heights. You can see for miles and miles around from the top. It’s amazing! I would recommend, but it’s not cheap.
The addition of the glass floor is excellent, if not a little nerve wracking! The trip up in the lift has windows but it is your choice whether you look out - my children were very scared of the lift ride. In total the whole experience includes a 4D cinema show before the lift ride which was very enjoyable - by 4D I mean birbating floors, 3D glasses and water spray. Expect to spend around an hour doing it all. If you park nearby in the multi story car park (top floor) you will be able to play "Where's Wally" with your car!
Obtained tickets for attractions on line before we visited. We went to the 4d cinema, which was great for adults and kids alike, then a trip to the top of the tower, don't forget to stand on the glass when you're up there. A great experience and brilliant views if Blackpool and the surrounding areas. There is also a small bar up there for refreshments if you need them. After the tower trip we had tickets for the circus in the wonderful old surroundings all decorated in golden panels. A true sight to be seen. Circus was brilliant with varied acts and comedy from the clown .Well worth a visit. There are other attractions within the tower best to check which ones you want to visit online before you go
Love this place. It's worth while going online and getting a big ticket... it gives you access to the tower the dungeons the ball room madam tausauds the zoo and the sandcastle. All at a cheap price and it's not a huge pay out when you get there because you can buy weeks before you go. Well worth the money.
Excellent! The Blackpool Tower Circus is a MUST see for everyone living in UK & even abroad. It's been going on for a really long time, I think 50+ years or sometime. The circus is rehearsed & very professional but funny at the same time. The jokes are current and sharp. All in all a thoroughly refreshing Circus. Then the is the summit of the tower which has a glass floor and is i think 600+ feet above the ground. Truly thrilling experience. Highly recommended.
At 57 years old and after countless visits to Blackpool, I finally got to climb the tower! A very worthwhile experience, but I really could not bring myself to walk over the glass floor! Don't worry though: you can go the opposite direction and avoid it, which I did. The view is amazing, but the star of the show for me was the building itself. Wonderful!
I think this is the most happening place in Blackpool. Good place to spend time with family. The circus and the tower eye are the main attractions in this spot. The dungeons are really good. It's a lot of effort that was put into it. Never got a chance to check out escape. The ballroom is good. Absolutely wonderful experience spending time here.
Once again, what a fantastic time we had at the Blackpool's Tower!! The organists know how to entertain the visitors and dancers alike. Our only concern/complaint is that the space for the dancers have been reduced in order to put more tables for the afternoon tea. Which we had. Then once you are seated, have to wait for a while to be served. We waited for half an hour before we have our drinks and further ten minutes for the sandwiches and cakes. We know that the food is made as it's been ordered but no offer of a simple glass of water or any other drink in the meantime. The staff was friendly and approachable but somehow they were never there when you need them. All in all, a good afternoon, but the customer service still needs some work.
The Tower Circus is the most beautiful building that I have ever been visited in my 68 years. Not wheelchair friendly due to it's age and I assume legal requirements not to alter anything structurally , wheelchair users can access the circus but you are really confined to a small area, you cannot get to the refreshments areas because of steps. Staff are hard to find if you want some help, I found that I had to literally break out through locked doors when I wanted to leave the building before the conclusion of the event that I was watching. The Circus is a fantastic venue and I do say that you should visit it if you can, it is great for people with no disabilities, people with disabilities should certainly not go there alone.
A must if your in Blackpool, i booked online and saved a couple quid each, cost me 23 pound for two of us which too be honest i was happy to pay. First of all your shown a 4D movie *Spoilers ahead* showing you how the tower was built and some of the history and happenings within the tower along with some footage of Blackpool itself, i enjoyed this short film as did my partner, you then go into the lift which feels as if your going forever, whilst a member of staff will tell you how fast and high you are travelling during your ride to the top. Once you exit the lift you are greeted by a lovely panoramic view of Blackpool and of course the 5 glass floor panels which can be avoided if you really don't want too but I'd recommend doing it, it was a weird sensation at first but i enjoyed it. The first level which you exit the lift is 390ft in the air you can also access a higher level at 419ft providing the weather is nice. They have a bar although i didn't use it personally it looked as if they had a decent range on offer. Overall id say if your in Blackpool this is a must.
Doesn't need much of an explanation. Reasonable price for tourists even better for residents. The Blackpool eye contains a 3d image screening before making the way to the top via the lift. Once up there depending on weather etc you can step or stand by the glass floor and then go up a further few levels. Good views. Accessible for everyone up to the glass floor level.
Amazing views and an unforgettable experience, it's an absolute must for any tourist visiting Blackpool. Lovely, friendly staff who are their for help if needed, giving all the information you need and offering chance to have a chat to the people who need a little assurance. Before you go up the tower there are photo opportunities (don't wear blue it doesn't pick up and body parts go missing with the backgrounds it's put with) and a 4d movie experience. Up the tower there is 360 views of the whole of Blackpool and surrounding areas with information stands to know what you can see. There is a bar which you can get drinks and cocktails from and of course the famous walk of faith which is glass panels floor and walls on the sea side of the tower. (The walk of faith is as soon as you come out of the lift for all the brave tourists conquering fears!)
