Well you cannot visit Blackpool without a trip up the Tower. Tickets from the tourist information opposite are £10.75 an adult. A small saving, you can buy combined tickets for all the attractions, we didn't have time to do the ballroom, dungeon and circus 😞Will gave to re-visit. The 4D show was very good and the views from the top... More

While definitely overpriced it had a short 4d film that was particularly fun for our small children (though it did scare some other small children in the theater) and the view is unbeatable. We were a bit frustrated with the line. We had purchased our tickets through our hotel so we went through the separate line for pre purchased tickets... More

What can I say but fantastic!!! Impressive views out over Blackpool and we were lucky to get a sunny day so could see for miles. Well worth the money and its not that expensive to go up expecially if you get the saver tickets and combine with other attractions.

This was an afternoon concert given by 4 top quality organists including Nicholas Martin. Was it good, was it just! We ordered sandwiches, cakes and coffee and were very surprised when the bill was less than £12 and the staff were so friendly and helpful. A visit to this wonderful venue is a must if you are in the area.

A visit to the top of Blackpool tower was spectacular, this time no scaffolding to be seen, once again we thoroughly enjoyed the thrill of it all, I'm not going to elaborate I'm just going to say do it, go right to the very top as far as one is allowed you won't be disappointed,
