Lovely atmosphere and some great staff but the best seating seems to be reserved for people ordering either afternoon or high tea. Never used to be like this as you could sit anywhere until recently. I asked one of the bar team about this and apparently people asked for this in customer surveys. I find it hard to believe that... More

Hi frankandtrin, Thanks for reviewing the Blackpool Tower Ballroom! I'd imagine that you might have seen the Afternoon Tea area absolutely heaving, as they are a tremendously popular product. Seating them in the prime seats is not only part of the Afternoon Tea experience, but it also makes serving the food, and clearing the tables etc. far less obstructive of... More

The hotel we stayed out was rather "worn out". Worn carpets and in need of some serious redecoration. The en-suite was just the right size as a dog kennel. But the breakfasts were good and plenty of it. The Blackpool Tower and its famous ballroom made the trip worthwhile. Can't do Blackpool without going to the top of this landmark... More

Having pre booked our high tea on line we had to pick up our tickets from the foyer in the tower. There was a very large queue which started well outside the tower. Unfortunately for us the signs were not visible as to which queue to stand in which delayed us even more. First impressions were not great. It all... More

Hi apart8, Thanks for reviewing the Blackpool Tower Ballroom. I don't really have much to add to your review other than to say the pricing is both unacceptable and an oversight on our part. We are in the process of a menu change in collaboration with some new suppliers, and our IT department changed the prices before the tills were... More

We took our daughter and granddaughter who was 9 years old. We paid for high tea and booked a table in advance, this is cheaper to do on line or direct with the tower before you travel. You pick your tickets up in the tower on the day you arrive. High tea was lovely and scones really tasty. The architecture... More

Had a lovely couple of hours watching the ballroom dancing very entertaining. Costs £2.95 for adults free for children if you want to watch from upstairs where there is a bar, or you can watch from below and costs from £37 which includes afternoon tea. The ballroom is absolutely stunning

We didn't visit the tower ballroom because after we had climbed all the stairs, we were informed by a guard on the ballroom door that we would have to buy a ticket to go into the ballroom. It's a new thing that they now charge people to watch the public dance! How mean. I will not visit again or recommend.

Hi Claire P, We'll be sorry to see you go! It's an absolute privilege to sit and enjoy everything the Ballroom has to offer, so I'm sorry you found the £2.95 balcony charge too steep. £1 from every ticket goes into a restoration fund for the Ballroom, allowing us to do some essential renovations once we've rasied enough money.

My friend and I decided to have afternoon tea at the tower ballroom having seen posters advertising it. The poster depicts a three tiered stand with cupcakes on the top, scones and cream on the middle and sandwiches on the bottom. It also shows a glass of cava or prosecco and tea. Having seen the pictures I enquirer at the... More

What can I say about this beautiful ballroom? Takes your breath away going in for the first time and hearing the organ playing, seeing the beauty of the room and watching the dancers dance. Had a high tea that was plentiful and had a lovely relaxing afternoon.
