An iconic Lancashire landmark, at the time of its construction in 1894 Blackpool Tower was the tallest human-built structure in the British Empire at 519 feet (158 m). It wears its primary influence on its sleeve, it's not just Parisians that will notice a passing resemblance to the Eiffel Tower.
Today, Blackpool Tower is Grade I-listed. Glamorous events and performances still take place in its ballroom, whilst the Tower Eye viewing platform gives a unique vantage of Blackpool’s seafront.
