The Blackpool Tower, Blackpool

4.0
Take in some of the best views of northwest England from the top of The Blackpool Tower. The city's version of the Eiffel Tower opened in 1894 and stands about 158 m (518 ft) tall. Today it holds a place on Britain's list of Grade I buildings for its architectural and historical significance. Head into the 4-D cinema at the bottom for a special effects-enhanced history of Blackpool's iconic tower. Next, take the elevator up to the glass-enclosed skywalk for a panorama of the Irish Sea and the Blackpool area. On a clear day, you'll be able to see the Isle of Man sitting between England and Ireland. Do check the weather before visiting, though, because high winds occasionally restrict access to the top.

  • Superb service from all of the attendants from the reception staff to cloakroom staff to ushers in the circus. All completely amazing and went out of their way to be helpful and nice. Circus Show was brilliant and outstanding. The Talent shown here was incredible. Breathtaking, colourful and funny show. Fit for every generation in your family, it has to be seen. Make sure a visit to The Blackpool Circus is on Your 'To Do' List!
  • Visited a few times over the years but still a great place to visit. The circus always puts on a wonderful show. It is advisable to pre-book for the circus to ensure that you can get into the performance that you want to see because it can be very popular
