As it was cold and windy, I decided to go into the Tower Ballroom for a while. I do not like or agree with the pricing system adopted by Merlin. It cost me £9.95 just to go sit in the ballroom and I was astounded to be asked if I would like to pay an extra £3.95 to go sit... More

Another travel in Spring Day. Blackpool, it's a seaside resort on the Irish Sea coast of England. It's known for Blackpool Pleasure Beach, an old-school amusement park with vintage wooden roller coasters. One of the tallest roller coaster in UK. The Blackpool Tower is the well-known landmark and it was built in 1894. It's a nice place.

Love, love, loved this attraction. A great view but not enough seating. We also had afternoon tea in the tower and a little waltz around the dance floor. Fantastic and a wonderful experience. Must do it again one day.

I've lived in Blackpool for 20 years and have never been up the tower in that time. It was really good. 4d mini experience first too for the price. Worth a visit whether your a visitor or a local!

Bit costly for what it is, but I suppose it's something you need to do whilst in Blackpool, nice views out over the sea and town, bit scarey on the glass floor, but definitely give it a go. All the way to the top is quite exciting but also very cold and windy, as to be expected with the weather... More
