Blackpool Tower & The Eye
There are many places Simon wants to visit we have a wish list. Simon lives with having cancer so we are intent on visiting as many places on our wish list as possible. A trip up Blackpool Tower was one we could tick off on our weekend away.
We strolled slowly to the tower elevator for the trip to the top. It had changed so much up there the Merlin group are certainly doing a good job no it is in there hands.
It has been 5 years since I last went up the tower then there was only one square panel that looked upon the Golden Mile below, now there is a whole side full.
The views are fabulous thankfully it was a beautiful day and we could see for miles around.
The tower itself is in the middle of a restoration and painting project which we were told would take 7 years to complete apparently it will take the next 3 years before its done as they have already been working for the last four.
As you can see from the photographs below we had a lovely time.
