The Casino

The most noticeable building in Blackpool is the 519 feet (158m) Tower. However, the best building, in my opinion, is the gleaming white Casino with its curved facades, built in 1939 by the architect Joseph Emberton.

"The world is a gambling table so arranged that all who enter the casino must play and all must lose, more or less heavily in the long run, though they win occasionally by the way."
Samuel Butler (1835-1902), English novelist and writer
