Who can resist the heritage and majesty of the Blackpool Tower?
Opened in 1894 and still welcoming visitors over 120 years later with its dazzling 120ft square ballroom, family attractions and of course the magnificent 518ft tower itself. After a 69 second ascent you’ll feel on top of the world, but do you dare step out on to the 5cm thick glass SkyWalk? We promise you that it can hold the weight of two elephants but how did they get them up there to check?
Large Visitor Attraction of the Year in the 2016 Lancashire Tourism Awards,the Tower Ballroom is now famous for its annual appearance on Strictly Come Dancing but even if you can’t dance, make time for afternoon tea in this glorious setting and take a lead from the Shakespeare quote above the stage…
"bid me discourse I will enchant thine ear."
