Blackpool Tower

Toast your visit to Blackpool with cocktails, and mocktails for kids, in the bar and observation deck at the summit of this 19th-century tower.

Modeled on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Blackpool Tower is an impressive freestanding tower on Blackpool’s iconic coastline. The tall red tower and its observation deck rise from a large base containing a ballroom and a circus. Snap photos of the impressive structure from a great distance along the flat terrain of the Fylde Coast.

Begin your visit watching the 4-D movie on the history of Blackpool and the surrounding region. The next step is a waiting area whose walls are adorned with vintage newspaper clippings about the city. 

Ride the elevator to the tower’s summit, which is known as the Blackpool Tower Eye and is 380 feet (120 meters) high. Enjoy stunning views of the Irish Sea and the historic cityscape of Blackpool. To the south, look for the undulating roller coasters of the Blackpool Pleasure Beach, while the city’s three emblematic piers jut into the sea in front of you.   

Climb two floors higher than the observation deck to reach the top of the tower. Summon your inner courage for the Walk of Faith on the glass panels at the top of the tower. Enjoy cocktails in style at the lofty Bar 380. 

Stroll along the sandy shore of Blackpool Beach and gaze up at the remarkable tower. See the illuminated tower at night, when its powerful beam lights up the area. Visit the area at the foot of the tower for the Tower Ballroom, the Tower Dungeon, a children’s playground and the Tower Circus. 

Purchase a Tower Pass for access to all of the attractions within the structure. Opening times vary depending on the season and weather on any given day. 

Blackpool Tower is just south of the North Pier in the heart of the Blackpool Beach area in the center of the city. Take the tramway to the Tower station or ride a bus to a stop on the main promenade. Go to other sights in the district, such as the Winter Gardens, Coral Island and SEA LIFE Blackpool.
