The Blackpool Tower Eye

The Blackpool Tower Eye is head and shoulders above any other attraction in this legendary Lancashire seaside town. Seriously, we’re talking views for days.

You’ll also visit the 4D cinema, which brings the Tower’s rich history to life with incredible film and sensory effects. Plus - If you’re feeling brave enough – you can step out onto the glass of the SkyWalk to feel like you’re walking on air. It’s made of proper sturdy stuff, we promise.

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

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!

In our own words...

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 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.

380 ft in the sky with 360 degree views, the 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 and watch the buzzing Golden Mile Promenade below. If you’re not scared of heights, that is.

Up there for a special occasion? You can pop a champagne cork and enjoy some bubbles to celebrate a birthday or celebration.

More about your day out at...

Blackpool Tower Eye

The Blackpool Tower Eye is open daily from 10am – it does close on Christmas Day and if the weather is bad though.

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).

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 be long queues at peak times, so be patient. Pre-book your tickets online and carry your contactless card.
