We had arrived on the Tuesday to be greeted by the owners which were lovely and caring as soon as we arrived. We had stayed at Birch Villa for two nights, and we had no problems as the room was very clean. The breakfast also was a great start to the day, as it was very nice in deed.

A much recommended hotel for if you're staying in Blackpool! We would be sure to return again sometime in the near future.

Thankyou Karen and Paul

Lovely B&b & Great Hosts
Warm welcome from Karen and Paul. Even though we arrived early Karen and Paul had got our room ready. Rooms well equipped and tastefully decorated. Breakfast excellent. Excellent location and lots of free parking locally. Thanks for a great stay. Would have put 5 stars (but no reset rating available)

Home From Home
What a wee gem of a place Karen and Paul have made, a small home from home in the heart of Blackpool. Very clean and tidy at all times with nothing to much trouble to make our stay comfortable. A real friendly cosy atmosphere with people that show they care about the service they provide and the full fry up breakfasts are excellent to set you up for the day ahead. Arrive as strangers leave as friends, couldn't be put better ourselves. Ps - Karen got your voicemail, just throw those out lol, hope to see you both again soon, take care , D&G

Amazing Stay In Blackpool
I was looking for a B and B at short notice and the Birch villa had 1 last vacancy. Paul and karen couldn't have been more helpfull, friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean, tidy and spacious and really cosy.

Breakfast the next day was fantastic, the best breakfast in Blackpool and loads of it, they even made a veggie breakfast at short notice for us. Thank-you for a great stay, we'll be back in october.

Excellent Hotel & Hosts
As two couples we wanted a central hotel for our 2 night stay and this was bang in the centre of the resort, clean comfortable rooms and the breakfast went down a treat after a heavy night. Karen and Paul couldn't have been more welcoming a really lovely couple who took the time to make sure everything was spot on. I requested to have champagne & flowers in one of the rooms on arrival and it was sorted out for us with no problems. You wont find a more welcoming hotel in Blackpool. We will be visiting again. Many thanks. x

A Joy !!
Although only staying the one night, I found my stay very comfortable and happily had a great time. Even though we arrived a little early we were welcomed warmly and taken straight to our rooms. Karen and Paul were both very friendly and always happy to share tips on where to go and what to do. The room itself was sized perfectly for one, and was spotless, as was the ensuite. Although my own appitite was absent, I am reliably informed by the rest of the group, that breakfast was "The Business" !!!

Overall I had an extremely pleasant stay and would recommend The Birch Villa Experience to anyone.

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
