Blackpool Tower reopens after multi-million pound restoration

Blackpool Tower has reopened to the public after a major 10-month restoration programme.

The regeneration project, aimed at encouraging families to stay longer in the resort, is part of a £20m investment for the tower and promenade.

The observation platform at the top of the Grade I-listed structure becomes the Blackpool Tower Eye and features a skywalk.
