Standing and Queueing

Please be aware that there is a limited amount of seating in The Circus that does not require the use steps to gain access.

Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair access
The Blackpool Tower building can accommodate all guests with a disability, with the exception of guests using mobility scooters. However, complimentary wheelchairs are available. The Blackpool Tower Eye and 4D Cinema can accommodate all guests with a disability, with the exception of guests using mobility scooters. However, complimentary wheelchairs are available. Due to the size of the show rooms, a maximum of two guests requiring the use of a wheelchair or one requiring a mobility scooter can be permitted per tour.
The tour is fully wheelchair accessible up to show nine, when the actor in the show will guide guests to a lift leading to the next show.
Drop Dead: drop ride – guests must be able to manoeuvre themselves into the seat and support their head unaided, as there is only a crash bar and no other harness. - Guests who cannot fulfil this criteria will be directed into the gift shop instead. Due to the age and design of The Blackpool Tower Circus arena wheelchair spaces are limited, so we cannot guarantee availability.
Access for guests with a disability is available on the ground floor.
Please be aware that there is a limited amount of seating in The Circus that does not require the use steps to gain access.
Please contact The Circus team prior to your visit if you will require assistance.
The Blackpool Tower Ballroom can accommodate all guests with a disability, with the exception of guests using mobility scooters. However, complimentary wheelchairs are available.
There are six steps to the entrance of the Ballroom, but a chair lift is available for wheelchair users. Unfortunately, the age of the building precludes wheelchair access to the balconies.
A limited number of wheelchairs are available for hire from our Buggy Park located on the ground floor, these are on a first come, first served basis.

A £10 refundable deposit is also required.

Wheelchairs are subject to availability; therefore, we would suggest that guests who need a wheelchair to travel around The Blackpool Tower bring their own for ease.
Due to the age and design of the building, we do not permit electric scooters above the ground floor or into the attractions, you may leave them in our buggy park located on the ground floor and hire a wheelchair for a fully refundable deposit of £10.

The Blackpool Tower website states that: "One registered disabled carer is able to visit our attractions free of charge when the person they care for pays the full individual on-the-door rate. The guest will need to provide official documented evidence of the disability, or of registered carer status (for example, blue/orange badge, award letters, or carer ID). The free carer ticket is not available for special events held by The Blackpool Tower or 3rd party organisers.
If assistance is required with ticket purchasing, our Admissions team will be able to help."
