Blackpool Tower’s New ‘Smiles Garden’ Opened By ‘King Charles III’

Travelling 380 feet in the air, ‘King Charles III’ has today (Wednesday 26th July) royally opened Blackpool Tower’s new ‘smiles garden’. With more than 50,000 colourful blooms, the magnificent garden will change with the colours and blooms of each season. As you may guess from the photographs, Blackpool Tower ‘borrowed’ the royal monarch from Madame Tussauds to launch their summer garden in the sky – but it was certainly still a regal occasion at the top of Blackpool’s iconic landmark as the photographs testify.

Aaron Edgar, Operations Manager at The Blackpool Tower, proudly said: “The top of Blackpool Tower really is looking absolutely stunning. You just cannot fail to smile when you see it It would obviously have been wonderful to have the real King Charles here to launch our summer garden of smiles – and who knows, let’s hope he may pay us a visit very soon! But in the meantime, his wax version from our neighbours Madame Tussauds along the promenade, is obviously superb so we were delighted to have the wax version of The King here this morning.

The amazing garden, which has been designed and created by Preston-based Margaret Mason Florist, includes a range of artificial botanical floral arrangements, offering visitors the chance to soak up the stunning views across the Fylde coast.
