Such a beautiful place in the middle of the tower. I was very impressed as I didn't think it would be so nice. Well worth a visit to escape the noise of Blackpool. They also offer cream teas too.

The Tower ballroom hasn't changed since the height of its popularity; the architecture is amazing and it's a very impressive place. However, when the lights are on and it's 3/4 empty, you can see the cracks are starting to show; it's in dire need of a bit of TLC to bring it back to its former glory. It would be... More

Hello, Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed by the cost of the Ballroom entry fee. However, as a business, the best way to sustain the Ballroom as a functioning and vibrant venue is to charge an entry fee. The money we've raised from the sale of balcony tickets in... More

Wow I was struck by the grandness of it all. This was the highlight of the weekend for me - I could have spent the whole day here watching the dancing and the amazing organist. For three pound each we sat on the balcony - I felt like Len Goodman 'SEVEN!' It was delightful and upon my next trip to... More

An afternoon tea dance takes you back to the 1930's and is well worth the trip. Make sure you go on a day when someone is playing the Mighty Wurlitzer, made in Tonawanda, NY (twelve miles from Buffalo, NY). I didn't have the tea but it looked pretty good.

Been to Blackpool a number of times over the years but only this time did we actually go up the Tower! What a revelation and how do they ever fit it all in? Definitely worth a visit
