From the dancing to the afternoon tea to the Wirlitzer and the amazing décor, the Tower ballroom was everything I hoped it would be and more. A lovely experience all round.

Super setting for ballroom dancing. Wish it was open all through the winter. Serving food is a great addition.

I was with a large group that had visited to marvel at the architecture. We enjoyed a splendid tea and managed to soak up some of the atmosphere. If in Blackpool, this is a must-see, but be respectful of the dancers as they are there to enjoy themselves too.

Only looked over balcony but it looked stunning. Very charming and welcoming and had real character. Could almost feel the dancing.

Living in an area where there are so few ballroom dancing facilities, a chance to visit and dance in the country's most famous ballroom is one to be savoured - and does not disappoint. A huge floor, a great atmosphere and a perfectly acceptable high tea makes a long journey well worth the trouble. Here's looking forward to the next... More

Have been dancing there quite a number of times. It is absolutely fantastic. Continual dancing from two organists. Both ballroom and sequence dancing. What a pity that Blackpool Council have decided to charge everyone to travel on the trams as I find them most convenient as I have trouble climbing onto a bus.

Had coffee & cake, squash for the kids (boys aged 5 & 7) whilst watching the dancers. The boys love Strictly and were mesmerised by everyone on the dance floor, they were too shy to have a go though! Fab atmosphere and surroundings, could have sat for hours. Jacket potatoes looked like excellent value for money too.
