Lonely Planet review
Built in 1894, this 154m-high tower is Blackpool's most recognisable landmark. In 2011 it reopened after a major refurbishment, which saw the addition of the Blackpool Tower Eye and 4D Experience , where you watch a film on the town's history (and feel the spray of the sea and the smell of the donkeys) before taking the elevator 154m up to the new observation deck, which has splendid views and only a (thick) glass floor between you and the ant-sized people below.
Back at ground level, a new dungeon exhibit has opened to sit alongside the old Moorish circus and the magnificent rococo ballroom , with extraordinary sculptured and gilded plasterwork, murals, chandeliers and couples gliding across the beautifully polished wooden floor to the melodramatic tones of a huge Wurlitzer organ.
