Amazing Value For Money
Me, my other half and my 4 year old stayed at The Carlton for one night. We felt very welcome, the room was nicely decorated and breakfast was very nice (definately worth the money). It is in an amazing location, only 2 minutes walk to the Tower. Only real negative is that the bathroom was a little dated but for the price we paid it was more than adequate. Would recommend and definately stay again.

Amazing!
Where do I begin? We turned up around 5pm on a Saturday evening to be greeted by both Sharon & Doug, who are the friendliest and most welcoming people we have ever met. The room we stayed in was clean, tidy and the beds were comfortable, ideal sized room for small family. Breakfast was lovely me and my other half both had full English (although there were more options) and Sharon offered us a choice of smaller breakfasts for our daughter. Quick service and clean dining room.

Overall we had a lovely stay and were very impressed with the hotel. We will be booking again soon

Well what can we say........what a fabulous weekend our family have had at the Carlton Hotel! Sharon and Doug were so welcoming with us, nothing was too much trouble, knowledgable when we required assistance for a good Chinese, even our 11 year old daughter and her friend were made to feel special. Hotel is beautifully decorated, ideal location, breakfast was excellent....even catered for our little vegetarian friend with us. Has a well lit communal lounge with t.v., but we didn't use this facility, free Wifi, instructions were clear concerning everything. Had some inconsiderable guests the first night due to lost keys, maybe doorbell needs to be heard by management.

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Distance 0.25 miles (0.39 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

Distance 0.42 miles (0.68 km)
With around seven miles of fun packed coastline, Blackpool is the entertainment capital of Europe, and home to the world famous Blackpool Tower with its ballroom, circus, adventure play centre, aquarium and ride to the top of the tower. The tower also contains the nerve-wracking Walk of Faith - a glass floor, 380 feet above the ground that allows an unrestricted view of the street below. The town centre also hosts a variety of well known shops. It was the Victorians who developed Blackpool into a mega-resort, and in the early twentieth century they flocked here in their thousands to enjoy the fantastic combination of sun, sand and sea.
