Let the special sensory effects and incredible filming bring the history of the Blackpool Tower to life in front of your eyes.Then take a trip 380ft into the sky to the top of The Blackpool Tower and experience the thrilling SKYWALK. Walk out if you dare onto the five centimetre thick glass viewing platform, where you can look out into the Irish Sea and see the famous Blackpool Promenade below you.See the North West of England spread out before you with views over Bowland, up to the Lake District and on a clear day down to Liverpool and across to the Isle of Man from the top of the iconic Blackpool Tower.

visited Blackpool Tower at the weekend to take photos of the Coca a Cola truck, was brilliant, also the 4d screen show was the best advert i have ever seen for Blackpool, always worth a visit up there if you get chance. just a shame they have to repaint with the scaffolding up. well done

“Good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

The tower is a great place to visit. Full of interesting things to see. Just so very expensive for a family day out. Could be spent on something better. But still a very interesting place to go.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

This has got to be the place to visit in Blackpool, Its not cheap but everything is all under one roof.You can spend a full day in the tower,and in the winter months there are always offers on.Plus you are nice and dry. This is the nice thing about living in Blackpool ,its on our door step and there are a lot of locals that never use it.Family friendly ,plenty to do .to go up the tower it costs extra, try walking on the glass floor.

“Fantastic views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

We went at night and the view from the top with all the lights was truly amazing. It's definitely worth doing if you've not been before. The walk of faith on the glass floor is something you may never get the chance to do again so go for it!!! Wrap up warm though as it's freezing cold if you go outside at the very top and very windy. We went with my 15 and 13 year old nieces and they loved it.

“A must-do attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The view from the top is great, you're high enough to get a good bird's-eye view but not so high up that everything is too tiny to make out. I really liked the 4D experience, it's a great little video with special effects that gives you a good feel for what Blackpool has to offer. There were also a couple of nice humorous touches, such as when the tower took off into outer space and the mother and her son looked amazed! The staff were pleasant too.
