Lovely Stay At The Grays Hotel
Me & my partner have just returned from a lovely two night stay at the grays hotel. Had a nice welcome & was so glad of the nice big comfy bed after a long 4 hour drive in the rain.

Room was very nice. Warm & a lovely en-suite.

Breakfast was very good & plenty of it.

Staff was nice,friendly & very helpful..

Walking distance from the tower & the opera house.

We managed to get a car parking space which was great so didn't have to worry though out our stay.

Would definelty recommend to our family & friends who are thinking of visiting Blackpool.

Very welcoming couple, especially as they were "closed" due to previous weather destruction to their roof, we managed to book up (website error) never the less we were made more than welcome and still allowed us to stay, room very comfortable, good size for a family of four. Kids loved their room, breakfast was just delicious! Very well located for sealift centre etc, not a noisy location which suited as having young children (out of season).

We had a great time at the Hotel. It was very reasonably priced and the room was very clean and had plenty of towels. Breakfast was much wider ranging than previous experience of Blackpool hotels and the staff were most helpful. The owners were most welcoming and nothing was too much bother. My soon has a severe milk allergy that was well catered for and we were able to leave things for him in the fridge which was a big help. I would recommend the Hotel for all it offers and being close enough to all the main attractions whilst being far enough away not to be busy.

My wife and I have just enjoyed a very comfortable stay (9th August) at this hotel.Enough to say we will be back,and will recommend it to our family and friends. The hotel room had full facilities,( with items that we had forgot to bring with us was readily made available at no extra cost). The room was decorated in a bright modern style , not in that dreary tired 1970 old Blackpool way best forgotten. The bedroom and bed/clothes were spotless, including ths bathroom facility. Access stairs were broad and easy to climb for the less mobile like myself. The breakfast food was freshly made and plentiful with extras offerred at every sitting. A big thanks to our hosts.

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Distance 0.43 miles (0.68 km)
Blackpool Tower opened on 14th May 1894, with the aquarium existing as a stand a lone attraction from the late 1870's. The tower is 518ft 9inches tall, with the walk of faith at 380ft from street level. The Tower alone contains 2,493 tons of steel and 93 tons of cast iron. The building at the base contains 985 tons of steel and 259 tons of cast iron.
The Tower has a viewing platform at 380ft above the promenade and is reached by a lift or if you are a maintanance worker by 536 steps!
Not for the feint hearted is the 'Walk of Faith' glass floor, a two inch clear panel that looks straight down to the Promenade below.
The 'Walk of Faith' glass floor panel was placed at the Tower top in 1998. The glass floor weighs half a tonne and is made up of two sheets of laminated glass. The 'Walk of Faith' can withstand the weight equivalent to five baby elephants.
To reach the top viewing platform at approximately 450ft you can walk up 2 flights of stairs.
The present Ballroom was designed by Frank Matcham and opened in 1899. The Ballroom floor measures 120ft by 102ft. It comprises 30,602 separate blocks of mahogany, oak and walnut. The first Wurlitzer organ was installed in the Ballroom in 1929. It was replaced in 1935 with one to Reginald Dixon's specification. The first organ went to the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens.
During the day visit the Ballroom to hear one of the famous organs being played. The Tower Ballroom is the traditional home of the mighty Wurlitzer Organ which rises up through the stage and complemented by the 3 Deck Wersi - the world's most advanced Blackpool Tower Ballroom - The Wurlitzer Organorgan, it includes over 600 sounds in the software, is touch screen sensitive and can create the sound of a complete orchestra.
The Tower Circus is positioned at the base of the tower, between its four legs. The circus first opened to the public on 14 May 1894 and has not missed a season since.

The present interior was designed by Frank Matcham and was completed in 1900.

The circus ring can be lowered into a pool of water and holds 42,000 gallons at a depth of up to 4 ft 6 inches, which allows for Grand Finales with Dancing Fountains. The Tower Circus is one of four left in the world that can do this.
During more than a century of entertainment, the world's greatest circus stars have paraded across its ring. The clown Charlie Cairoli appeared at the tower for 39 years. Britain's best-known ringmaster Norman Barrett worked the ring for 25 years.
Animals appeared in the circus until 1990.
It was planned to close the famous circus at the end of the 1990 season and replace it with an animatronic attraction. Public opinion and the fact the animatronics were not ready meant that the circus continued.
Today, the circus is produced and directed by Hungarian Laci Endresz. A live band (sometimes accompanied by Mooky the Clown) provides all the music for the show, often dynamically syncing with the performers' movements. The circus band play a variety of different songs, usually Latin for the acts. In the winter the circus stages a pantomime instead of the regular show.
The oldest part of the building is the aquarium which was part of Dr Cockers' Menagarie and Aquarium in the 1870s.[1] It was kept open to earn revenue while the tower building went up around it. The aquarium was modelled on the limestone caverns in Derbyshire. It houses 57 different species of fresh water and salt water fish and the largest tank holds 32,000 litres of salt water.[28]
The aquarium closed permanently at the end of the 2010 season and will be completely remodelled to make way for a new "Dungeons" attraction.[29] This is part of the investment by the Merlin Group, who took over the operation of the Tower at the end of the 2010 season on behalf of new owners Blackpool Council
