3 things worth shouting about:
The Blackpool Tower Eye is currently closed and will re-open on April 1st, 2023
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!
We thought that the 4D film is really worth watching!
The views are absolutely breath-taking, this is a must do in Blackpool
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.

That’s up to you! The 4D cinema experience takes around 5 minutes. You can stay as long as you like within the Eye so you’re in no rush to take in all the views (and sample a couple of cocktails at the bar). You’ll need 45 minutes to an hour to make it round the whole experience and there’s a Tower Eye Shop where you can pick up a souvenir (to prove to your mates you actually did it).
It’s best to leave pushchairs firmly on the ground – there's a designated buggy park at the entrance.
Yep – it closes when there’s high winds. Trust us, you wouldn’t want to be up that high when there’s a gale blowing.
The Blackpool Tower Eye is home to Bar 380, a fully stocked bar with cocktails (and all the classics), 380ft in the sky. Fancy.
Everyone’s welcome – so long as they don’t mind heights. Just bear in mind - kids under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
Yes, the whole attraction is wheelchair accessible with the exception of the outer upper levels which can only be accessed via the stairs. Mobility scooters are not permitted however complimentary wheelchairs are available.
Pre-booking is the best way to guarantee entry. Plus, you’ll save yourself a few bob. Bonus.
The Blackpool Tower Eye is open daily from 10am – it does close on Christmas Day and if the weather is bad though.
They accommodate guests in wheelchairs but not mobility scooters – these can be swapped for a complimentary wheelchair on the ground floor. The 4D cinema is pretty loud, so it might startle guide dogs. And the special effects recreate extreme weather – if it’s all a bit much, staff can let you out the back door. There might also be long queues at peak times.
