Hotel Description

A visit to the vibrant seaside town of Blackpool should be amongst the '99 Things To Do Before I Die' list. To accompany your visit a stay in one of Blackpools' superior establishments is a must. The Aberford is a mid-Victorian establishment only 30 seconds from Central Promenade and in the heart of historical Foxhall village, Central Blackpool. It aims to provide quality accommodation with affordable rates. Neil, Deb and their staff provide a friendly, yet professional welcome to ensure that your stay is memorable. They add those little touches which make all the difference such as late breakfasts from 9.00 to 10.30 at the weekend and a Sunday check-out time of noon so that you can enjoy a relaxing stay whilst enjoying the nightlife.

Value For Money!
This was our 3rd stay at the Aberford and continued to be a very relaxing stay in a very comfortable and welcoming hotel. Very pleased with our ensuite room which was spotlessly clean a very good sized, nothing is too much trouble for the owners who do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Having now found the Aberford we will continue to stay here each time we visit Blackpool.

Perfect Location
Myself and my mum stayed at the Aberford Hotel on 26-29th Oct. It's a stones throw away from the bus station, the promenade and the Central Pier. Couldn't ask for more perfectly located accommodation. The owner was extremely pleasant. Check-In and Check-Out was straightforward. The room was on the Ground Floor. Perfect for someone lazy like me! Little cold on entrance but that was sorted by turning the heater on. Slight glitch with the tv but the owner couldn't have been more helpful in pinpointing the issue and sorted it there and then. There were people up talking til 5am in the lounge, which made for an unsettled sleep but couldn't complain as they were there on holiday like ourselves. The breakfast was great. Fry-up's for the adults along with toast and selection of cereals and other choices for the kids. We spent most of our nights out and didn't get to enjoy the relaxation of the bar. But, it was good to hear the background music instead of silence on passing. Will definitely be back. Thanks :) x

Overnight Stay
First time at the Aberford, Friendly atmosphere. Lovely clean rooms, only one minor complaint, not enough power points, had to unplug the TV to use the kettle, but apart from that, excellent. The breakfast was lovely and fresh and the staff were tops.

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Distance 0.44 miles (0.71 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
