I visited Blackpool with my wife for the first time in my life this year. Of course we went up the Tower then on the way out decided to look into the Ballroom. We were so glad we did. It is like stepping back through time to a by gone era. There was a wonderful old Wurlitzer Organ being played,... More

What can you say about 'Blackpool Tower' that hasn't already been said. A must see, particularly if you enjoy ballroom dancing but even if your not it's worth a visit. It may even motivate you to start those dancing lessons you've been thinking about.

Afternoon tea and a dance in this wonderful landmark was an excellent couple of hours. Or go to the circus if you so wish.

The sheer grandeur of the ballroom, still as enchanting as ever, the organists on duty the day we visited Sunday 19th April were great, Chris Hopkins & Mark Speight a big thanks to them for playing most of our request dances.. Bar & snack bar staff very good. Fab atmosphere.

Loved the ballroom, very ornate really liked the oldy worldly feel. Just a shame we didn't see the organ in action.

My wife and I are both fans of Strictly Come Dancing and so a visit to the tower Ballroom was essential during our stay in Blackpool. We ordered tea and took our place at the edge of the Ballroom, it was obvious from the start that this was a meeting place for established dancers, they all came dressed for the... More

We went here for the Easter Extravaganza. It was dreadful. Long queues to get to the bar, the singers were shockingly bad, so bad that they gradually cleared the room and had to rely on children coming up on stage to maintain interest. The night was supposed to finish at 11 I think but they were packing up long before.... More

We had a great afternoon dancing with afternoon tea it was a special day. However I feel the Wurlitzer organ is a bit dated now, it was much better when the Hammond organ was playing.

I love this place. It's sumptuous and fun just to watch the dancers and the organist place. I turned up about 3pm for their Afternoon tea but they only serve it between 1-2pm which is far too early. I always try and visit here when in Blackpool!
