Beside the seaside...

The Blackpool Tower Circus opened yesterday. We thought a trip to "Tower World" would be a nice day out for us with Grandma Dot & Cousin Katie.
Tower world is the vast building that houses all sorts of different activities, so much that you could spend all day there. It also has some gems of Victorian architecture, notably by Matchless Matcham.

It is home to two particularly stunning rooms in the complex.

The Ballroom...

...and the Circus.

A trip to the top of the tower also gives you a chance to conquer your fear on the "walk of faith" 380 feet above street level.


More to come!

Liz, I fancy that new skywalk at the Grand Canyon. Heights don't bother me if I feel that the structure is mechanically sound.
