The Blackpool Tower has been welcoming visitors since 1894. A complete refurbishment in 2011 cleverly kept the Tower’s iconic heritage while ensuring its facilities could be enjoyed by everyone. A swift ride in the lift will take you 380 feet up to the glass bottomed Skywalk, from which you can look across the north west, and on a clear day see as far as the Isle of Man.

As well as incredible views, the Tower also boasts a host of other attractions including a 4D cinema, Tower Circus, Tower Ballroom, Tower Dungeon, Jungle Jim’s Indoor Play Area and Dino Golf.

Assistance/guide dogs are welcome in the Tower and if requested in advance a BSL interpreter can be arranged for events. Wheelchairs are available for use on site and there is excellent access around all the attractions.  However, the age of the building precludes wheelchair access to the balconies of the ballroom.
