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.

“Blackpool Tower”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

The tower itself is good, just spoilt now by all the 'add on' Photo opportunities and commercialism of the whole building. Its a shame because the building itself is a beautiful grand palace that is slowly being destroyed. It is also very expensive.

“Trip up the tower”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

I had visited before but it was more value for money. They now charge separately for each area and this could be a very expensive day out if your mad enough to pay it all. Thanks ribby hall for the discount passes as i would not want to pay full price for. I do love going up to tower and Blackpool is looking a lot cleaner and tidier. Burgers are rotten.

“Blackpool Tower and Circus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

I was the only adult with 4 children and booked the Tower (including 4D cinema experience and Circus, in advance) I just hoped the children would love it and they did! The 4D Cinema was fantastic and fun. At the top of the tower all the children thoroughly enjoyed the glass floor and wandered around and up the various levels. The circus was brilliant and the nearly 2 hours flew. The children where aged 2 at 5years and 2 at 9 years and laughed the whole way through, as did myself. The staff everywhere, the whole day, in every crook and cranny where exceptionally accomodating and interested that we where enjoying our day.

“Glass floor is brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Watched some of the dancing in the ballroom, and then up the tower. View from the top is great and enhanced by being able to stand on the glass floor!
Staff very pleasant and helpful.
