One ticket to this outstanding attraction grants visitors entry to a host of Blackpool’s best sights. The tower itself, opened in 1894 and now a Grade I-listed British landmark, was inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It’s 158m (518ft) tall and sits between the north and central piers. The Blackpool Tower Eye, a glass-floored observation tower, offers a panorama out over the Irish Sea and also boasts a 4D cinema, which presents visitors with a fascinating film about the town. The tower also comprises the Circus, Dungeons and Ballroom.
