One of the most recognised landmarks in the region owes its existence to Victorian engineering ingenuity, opening in 1894 at a cost of £64,000. Situated on the seafront between the North and Central Piers, today the Tower is an entertainment mecca, featuring a circus, aquarium and major family shows and events all year round, as well as the world-famous Tower Ballroom.
There are guided lifts every five minutes to the Tower Top. They start 20 minutes after the Tower opens & the last lift is 20 minutes before the Towers closing time (subject to demand - and high winds!). Arriving at 380 feet there´s a real panoramic view. With an additional three levels to ascend, on a clear day you can see as far as North Wales and the Lake District and as the sun sets on a clear evening, The Isle Of man is visible across the Irish Sea.
There´s also a selection of heritage boards, photos from the Towers past and information about some of the sights you can see from the Tower Top.
