Owner description: The Blackpool Tower Eye and solid-glass SKYWALK offer the best views across the North West of England from the top of the iconic Blackpool Tower.Begin your journey to the top with a visit to the incredible 4D cinema. 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.

“Enjoyed but slightly disappointed”

We bought a big ticket which allowed us into all the attractions. We all enjoyed the tower, the only downside was at the circus where the didn't show us the water finale.

“a Free afternoon of entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Only visited to upstairs of the Ballroom, as we are two old ladies. Found this area to be free and we spent a couple of hours watching the dancers below, most enjoyable.

“great views (didnt go to circus)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

we had a great time at blackpool tower and the glass floor experience is very scary took me 10 mins to pluck up the courage to do it, the 4d cinema experience is realy great not very long but we realy enjoyed it, if you are going id suggest booking tickets online as they are cheaper.
