Blackpool Tower


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.
