The History of New Brighton Tower & Grounds
One of the most important structures ever built in
Victorian Britain, the tallest building in the land, it stood at 567 feet. The Tower had been constructed in record time. It towered over the greatest port in the land, a beacon to the shipping
that sailed in and out of the River Mersey.
The Tower Theatre, sited between the legs of the tower, could accommodate an audience of 2,500, while the ballroom the largest in the North could entertain another 1000 couples dancing the night away.
