The Blackpool Tower, one of Britain’s most renowned landmarks, was built in 1894. The first visitors were awestruck by its remarkable design, massive scale, and opulent decorations. Even nowadays, as attractions within the Blackpool Tower have transformed and developed, visitors are amazed by a truly spectacular view of Blackpool from the top of the tower.
What Are Blackpool Tower’s Main Attractions?
You can find 5 attractions inside the tower, including Blackpool Tower Eye ( the tallest observation deck in Lancashire stands at 380ft), Blackpool Tower Dungeon, the Blackpool Tower Circus, Madame Tussauds Blackpool, and the opulent Tower Ballroom.
The enthralling SkyWalk takes you 380 ft into the sky to the top of The Blackpool Tower.
It should come as no surprise that going to the top of the Blackpool Tower is the particular highlight. The structure houses one of the most well-known observation decks in the UK. It sits at a sky-high 380 ft (120 meters) above you, but you don’t have to walk up, as there is a lift that can quickly take you to the top.
Once you’ve reached the pinnacle, you’ll be able to walk around the Tower Eye, a two-story viewing platform. Walk out onto the glass observation deck, from where you can gaze out into the Irish Sea and enjoy the view of the renowned Blackpool Promenade.
However, not all of Blackpool Tower’s attractions are located high in the sky. You can also go down to level 2 to explore the magnificent Tower Ballroom. The Blackpool Tower Ballroom, which dates back to 1894, is renowned for its unique suspended dance floor and remarkable design, and it continues to be a place to visit for dance enthusiasts from all over the world.

Step into the dazzling world of glamour at Madame Tussauds Blackpool, just down the Promenade.This interactive attraction allows you to get close to some of the most well-known celebrities in the UK, including Ed Sheeran, Mo Farah, and even Queen Elizabeth II.
