The Blackpool Tower Circus

Clowns. High-wire walkers. Acrobats. Magicians. Escapologists. Contortionists. Seeing a show at Blackpool Tower Circus reminds you how fun this type of old-school entertainment can be.

It first opened in 1894 which means crowds have been ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the show for nearly 130 years. Take your seat and within five minutes we bet you’ll be doing the same.

The Blackpool Tower Circus is currently closed and will re-open on 01-04-2023

Not great if you're sensitive to noise

The performance is really good but it can be quite loud. If you're sensitive to loud sounds you might not enjoy

VIP seats/front row not suitable for wheelchair users

VIP seats are on the front row but you have to go down steps to sit there so not suitable for wheelchair users

In our own words...

It's Blackpool's longest-running show. So they must be doing something right.

Clowns run the show at Blackpool Tower Circus, and that’s actually a good thing (they’ve got awards to prove it). Current residents, the beloved Mooky and Mr Boo, are slapstick legends in the making so expect a good laugh.

Clowns aren’t the only acts on the bill. There’s a whole host of talented performers from all over the world who’ll have you clinging to the edge of your seats with their high flying, death-defying tricks. Make sure you pick your jaw up off the floor for the world-famous water finale though.

Oh and FYI – if you time your visit between the Spring and November you’ll catch the brand-new seasonal show too. Even more fun.

More about your day out at...

Blackpool Tower Circus

You definitely need to check the official website to see when the main show and special events are happening. Showtimes tend to be 1pm, 4pm & 7pm but these do change seasonally. The Blackpool Tower itself is open 10am to 9pm on most days and there are plenty of other attractions onsite to keep you busy while you wait for the circus. Make a day of it.

The Blackpool Tower Circus is simple to find – it’s bang on the Golden Mile promenade so you can’t miss it. You’ll find disabled access to the tower at the Promenade entrance, a registered carer can attend for free with the person they look after, and guide dogs are welcome.

A limited number of wheelchairs are available for hire from the buggy park on the ground floor – electric scooters aren’t allowed above this level, but you can park yours safely there and swap it for a manual chair.

You need to pre-book and it’s cashless – remember your contactless card.
