"Check the weather! "

Keep your eye on the weather if you're going to the Tower Eye as I booked Saturday and Sunday last week but they closed due to the weather!

What to expect at The Blackpool Tower Eye

Welcome to the high life - 380ft to be exact

This Blackpool hotspot is as much a celebration of the town’s most iconic landmark as it is a viewing point for the best views in the North West.

The 4D cinema experience (complete with special sensory effects) kicks off your visit and sets you up perfectly for what’s to come, taking you on an immersive journey through the tower’s history. As you make your ascent to the peak (don’t worry, there’s a lift), you can see out to the steel girders and catch your first glimpse of the panoramic views.

It’s no surprise that the 360-degree views are top. The Irish Sea stretches out to the horizon and, when the weathers good, you can see down to the Isle of Man and Liverpool.

The SkyWalk is another star of the show for those feeling brave. Gingerly take a step out onto the 5cm thick glass (yep, really) and watch the buzzing Golden Mile Promenade below. If you’re not scared of heights, that is.

Fancy a tipple at the top? Grab a cocktail (or whatever’s your drink of choice) at Bar 380, 380ft in the sky. Access is included with your tickets – lovely stuff.
