Funtime all the way but only for an hour (which I thought was a good idea as the children get tired) We then... More

We often visit Blackpool at this time of year, and find the Tower to be a very welcoming place. The staff are always friendly and helpful. On this occasion, Francis and the reception team excelled themselves. They dealt with our queries on renewing Merlin cards patiently and efficiently, and Francis greeted us very warmly at the entrance to the Ballroom.... More
