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.

Have to review the tower again as attended in April 17 for the Northern Soul do again. The staff could not have been more different and therefore feel they need a positive review compared to my last rant. The staff were really welcoming and seemed to go out of their way to assist rather than on the last visit. The... More

We had a terrific view from the top of the tower but to overcast to see the Isle of Man. 4 D movie before the trip to the top was fun and very informative. Nice reasonably priced gift shop. I was very impressed with the polite and helpful staff throughout our time there.

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
