About Blackpool Tower, Blackpool

The tower is always a bit of a surprise to its visitors! For one, it was built in 1894, by some inspired by the Eiffel Tower. And though it never gained quite the fame of it’s Parisian predecessor, it made up for it by providing a lot more to do. The following are the highlights of the tower.

  • Blackpool Tower Eye: A short 4D cinema experience followed by a stroll over a transparent skywalk – ceiling to floor uninterrupted views from over a 100 metres above the ground. Subject to weather conditions.
  • Blackpool Tower Circus: Crazy and funny acrobatic stunts. April – November only. Book tickets online at least 24 hours in advance.
  • Blackpool Tower Ballroom: Immerse yourself in a beauty that’s immensely stylish and charming. A brilliant dance floor, a famous Wurlitzer organ and high tea. Check out your options online.
  • Blackpool Tower Dungeon: Hilarious, scary and out and out brilliant, this terrific production has no equal anywhere else.
  • Blackpool Jungle Jim: Think Temple Run, with some Tarzan thrown in. Enough said.

That’s not all. If you pay GBP 500, you can even light up the Blackpool tower’s 25000 lights exactly as you wish. If you’re hungry, you can visit the Blackpool Tower Burger Kitchen.

Blackpool Tower, Blackpool Reviews

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Blackpool Tower tour is fantastic I really enjoyed it. Starts with a 3d show which is brilliant won't give it away.. You can visit the ballroom which hosts strictly come dancing but best of all is the glass walkway at the top not for nervous people but it is safe and the view from the top is amazing

  • Excellent day out. The 4d cinema is very good and for all ages, you can go to the top of the tower which has a glass walkway, which is great fun and a brilliant picture opportunity. The jungle Jim was really good for the kids, great adventure play☺☺you need to make sure you book your time slot which are 1 hour slots, good cafe area too in the jungle him where you can get a coffee or even a pint of you fancy it!
