Blackpool Tower & Central Pier
The Blackpool Tower experience is an extravaganza of family fun shows and attractions. Jungle Jim's Indoor Adventure Land is a favourite with younger children, featuring swings, slides and climbing sets in a themed fun 'Lost City' world. Mooky the Clown is on hand to entertain at the Tower Circus, which includes some of the best Circus acts from around the world. Situated right down in the depths of the Tower is the award-winning Blackpool Tower Dungeon Experience featuring live actors, an exhilarating drop ride, fantastic special effects and hilarious spooky fun guaranteed.
The Blackpool Tower Eye Experience for panoramic views of the resort and coast is one of the highlights of any trip to Blackpool. Tread in the footsteps of millions of visitors, and head up to the top of the Tower. The experience includes a 4D film and at the very top the brand new SkyWalk.
Tower & Ballroom History
Spectacular Blackpool Tower Ballroom was designed by the great Frank Matcham and it first opened in 1899. Featuring the mighty Wurlitzer Organ, Tower Ballroom is one of the UK's few classic ballrooms to survive. Many such ballrooms were once situated along the Northwest coastline. New Brighton's tower ballroom for example was lost to a fire and the tower demolished. Blackpool Tower Circus dates from 1900 and was also designed by Matcham. The ballroom and Blackpool Tower Circus are now Grade listed.
Events & Tours
Blackpool Tower Ballroom hosts year round events, dancing competitions, shows, Northern Soul nights and Big Family Days out. Special Dungeon late tours and interactive shows, heritage tours and party nights are all available. A great cafe bar sits on level 5 of the Tower and includes a Sea View Terrace overlooking the Comedy Carpet!
