I haven't been to Blackpool before and as the tower was closed I had to settle for the ballroom balcony. After some confusion as to what I was paying £2.99 for, I was pleasantly surprised to spend some time watching the dancers and listening to the fab music. We even got to see the Wurlitzer come up from under the... More

They have absolutely no idea of what Afternoon Tea should be. Totally NOT as advertised, no teapots (vacuum flasks) no refill (only one cup each). Dry shop bought sandwiches, come prepacked and chopped in half, crusts on. No choice of Cakes, dry buns in paper and scones with no "preserves" just tiny jelly pots. British rail type earthenware crockery, paper... More

This was our second visit to the Tower Ballroom. This visit was not as enjoyable as our first visit. Dancing was due to commence at 11am but the main entrance didn't open until this time so that when we eventually got into the ballroom the dancing had already started. The staff members on the reception were not particularly friendly and... More

Having been a sequence dancer many years ago and a huge fan of strictly come dancing, I wanted to visit the iconic ballroom whilst on a visit to Blackpool. We decided to go for the afternoon tea which included entry at £40... More

This review is specific to the amazing Tower Ballroom and not the tower itself or the attached leisure facilities. We visited as part of a Dancing weekend to watch the World Jive Championship. The actual Ballroom is slightly smaller than expected if you are used to see it on TV. Having said that is still magnificent and breathes tradition. You... More

It is a beautifuuly restored and maintained reminder of an opulent age. The painting and decorating is as if Michelangelo himself had painted it. This is a must for any art lover and of course if you can dance as well you get a double boost of excitement on one of the best sprung dance floors in the world
