What a way to while away the afternoon. This is a notice to those who do not wish to dance. You can pay a reduced rate and sit in the balcony just to listen to the organ. Phil Kelsall and the mighty Wurtlizer do not fail to impress. This rate is not advertised and is not easy to find out... More

We just wanted to say we have been there but it was really great to watch the dancers .. not official but very accomplished. Shame about the plastic containers for butter and jam with afternoon tea.

I was not expecting that room over decorated in rococo style, impressive. And also the nostalgic atmosphere of the old time dancers. I had a high tea, with scones, cakes and sandwiches...well, I could stay forever there watching the dancers floating thru the room. So bad I dont know how to dance.

The Tower ballroom was a calm and serene place. We did not dance, just watched from the balcony. You could easily sit there for hours watching the dancers and listening to the music!

With it's sprung floor a great place to dance but for people like me who can't dance it's a great place to "people watch"

For this years Wedding Anniversary my husband surprised me with Afternoon tea at Blackpool Tower Ballroom. We have only been learning to dance for six months but we were both looking forward to this visit. We were not disappointed.
