The Blackpool Tower is 158m high and was opened in 1891. However, due to incorrect painting, the tower started to corrode and was nearly demolished. Instead, it was replaced (1921-24) and consists of 2,500 tonnes of cast iron and almost 100 tonnes of steel.
The tower consists of a number of attractions:
- The viewing platform with a clear glass section of the floor.
- The Tower Ballroom.
- The aquarium.
- The Tower Circus.
