This list ranks the tallest buildings and structures in Blackpool, United Kingdom by height. Blackpool is a popular tourist resort on the north west coast of England, and many tall structures in the town are associated with the local tourism industry. Since the late 19th century, the tallest structure in Blackpool has been the 518 ft Blackpool Tower, which is also the 16th tallest free-standing structure in the UK.[1] There are no planned developments in the town which will take the 115+ year title from the Blackpool Tower.
