Blackpool TowerCurrently Closed
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.

Amazing view and tour. Ideal for a great holiday, family day out or a romantic pleasure. I recommend going during the evening till night, you'll have a better experience to see the lights switch. But without a doubt, I'd highly recommended! It's an iconic landmark of Blackpool, if you visit Blackpool it's worth visiting this!
Great fun. Well managed! Kept a toddler entertained for hours. Even had handy buggy park as it gets busy. Definitely recommend buying tickets online. Queues were very long, and we got to walk straight in.
Blackpool tower is stunning, the 4D cinema experience was fantastic! The circus was excellent, not a bad word to say! Loved the ballroom too, absolutely stunning. I would definitely recommend going to all of these attractions! The tower dungeon was great fun too! Will be back next year x
Tower is great! Stand on the glass floor if you are brave enough. Wrap up warm, as it does get windy up there! Make sure to visit the circus - the circus is amazing! Take your own glowsticks and sweets though - much cheaper. Sadly the ballroom was closed the day we went, but I've seen it before and it is well worth a visit, too.
Staff really helpful after no disabled place in circus even though this was booked. Also staff took us in the goods lift to the disabled toilet, hoist should be automatic not manual as really struggled with our disabled young person x also the same staff member let us into the ballroom as it isn't open Sunday which would have been a massive disappointment should we have turned up tomorrow and this was one of our seven events we had paid for x overall staff fantastic but communication needs to be improved x
