Warm & Welcoming
Tiffany is very welcoming, the b&b has a warm & friendly feel. Rooms immaculate with lots of lovely little extra finishing touches you don't expect for such a reasonable price. Definitely excellent value, breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The kids absolutely loved the family suite. We usually do apartments when we stay in Blackpool, purely for the space with 3 young children but we have been converted and will definitely be returning to Golden Sands for our next visit.

Excellent B&b *****
Really enjoyed our weekend break here. Room was very clean and comfortable with lots of little extras. Bed was super comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. Owner was very friendly and welcoming, she even posted an item we had left in the room back to us, thank you! Would say this is the best b&b we have stayed at in Blackpool so far. Hope to stay again in the future, will be bringing our little dog with us next time as they are pet friendly.

Lovely Weekend Break
We recently stayed at the Golden Sands Hotel. It was beautifully kept, clean and very friendly! Our room was clean, comfortable (although the mattress was very firm....) and little extras such as refreshments were lovely. There was a good selection of breakfast, to suit both our tastes- perhaps another juice at breakfast would be nice. Would definitely recommend and if we come back to Blackpool, wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

Dog Friendly Hotel
My husband and I and our dog Baillie had a five-day stay at the Hotel. The owner Tiffany was absolutely fantastic. A true dog lover and exceptionally kind to our pet Baillie. Every morning Tiffany made him his sausage and was presented to him in the dining room with us during our full English Breakfast. Brillant care and great attention from Tiffany. Would recommend to families and especially to dog-loving families to book and go to the Golden Sands Hotel. Many Many Thanks

We stayed with Tiffany for 2 nights over the weekend and could not praise her enough! The room was very clean and well made, she was very polite and accomodating, making sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast was lovely and delivered to our table with speed. My lad even fell in love with her 2 little doggies and wanted to take angel home with him! Over all a very pleasant stay.

Having the family suite was perfect as kids had there own separate room within our suite so we were not all crammed in the same room.

Will definitely return on our next trip.

The breakfast was served piping hot and was delicious. It’s also only a 10-15 min stroll to the pleasure beach park.

As for the staff they were a joy to be around. The food was amazing i cant fault it! They even went out the way to try and get my 2 year old pancakes after he requested them for breakfast.

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Distance 0.92 miles (1.47 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
