Went up to the top as part of (grown up) daughter's birthday bash.Wonderful views of the coast; a bit too hazy for the Lake District hills.Has to get a 10 for being the ultimate icon of intersected stations.

Had a great trip up Blackpool Tower with Paul Webster this lunch time. A super 4D film is seen before you go up to the Blackpool Eye.

Repairs and maintenance in progress. Always impressive. A lot of work appears to have been done on the esplanade. Its now looking quite smart.

could not find it at first but a couple of locals had heard about it and pointed me in the right direction,seriously though must have been a few times over the years I would have had problems tracking it down after a night out in blackpool.

Retrospective log. On this day in 1995 my local football team Colwyn Bay F.C. faced Blackpool in the second round of the F.A. Cup. After getting off the coach we had some time spare to wander around the town a bit and I made sure that I got a good look at this famous landmark. We lost 2-0, but put up spirited resistance and this is still our best cup run to date. I also passed by the tower on 23/02/09 whilst walking the Lancashire Coastal Way.
