Driving along the M55 it's always that first distant view of the tower that lets you know you approaching your Blackpool destination. Looking spruce all lit up with lights against the spring evening sky.

Great venue in the Ballroom! Good experience had with friends and something different. Only downside was the weather on the evening of our visit which is sometimes unavoidable on the coast in March in the U.K.!

The 4d show was extremely good at the start of the trip. The lift up was very quick. The views from the enclosed platform are worth the trip but due to the strong wind we could not go right to the top. (We were informed about this when we bought our tickets.)

We visited the tower under the impression that we could see the tower in its entirety. We were so wrong, You have to pay separately for each area. to visit all of the tower a toddler under 3 ticket would be £8.95 , this rises to £ 25.50 for under 15s going up to £30,00 for 15 and over, a... More

Having done the tower years ago this is not what I remember. You used to get access to all parts of the Tower for the one price. Now you have to buy each part individually. The view from the top was amazing despite the poor weather.

This place is freezing cold and scruffy. Now you can't even get into the ballroom without paying over £7. I was born and bred in blackpool and came back for a visit and it has totally been let down by whoever now owns it I wouldn't return.
