Blackpool Tower – Visit Blackpool’s Iconic Tower

(Last Updated On: January 19, 2023)

A trip to Blackpool would not be complete without a journey to the top of its renowned tower.

Take the elevator to the top for stunning panoramic views after viewing the tower’s history brought to life with the power of 4D cinema.

The amount of time you spend on top of the tower is up to you, and the staff will ensure that you feel comfortable and safe throughout.

The top of Blackpool Tower has a glass floor called the SKYWALK. You’ll have the sensation of being suspended hundreds of feet in the air while walking on it.

Take in the spectacular views of the Lake District and the Isle of Man on a lovely day.

Do you have it in you to go all out? Climb the spiral staircase for those that think they can handle it.

Blackpool Tower is one of our favorite things to do in Blackpool and is great for the whole family.
