This is a great entertainment venue with lots of shows on offer and attractions for children. The main areas are fresh and bright and we enjoyed lunch in one of the restaurants. Make sure you check it out.

I have organised two tours of the Winter Gardens recently, one for a Local History Group and one for a Summer activity for a dance group and can recommend it as the feedback from members was great.

Beautiful building both as you approach and in the foyer / central halls. Worth a visit - take in a show, attend an event, eat in the tearooms or just amble through.

Have been to the Winter Gardens a few times it is an interesting building with a lot of history. The Empress Ballroom in particular has alot of character. The toilet facilities could be better, and there are parts of the building that are looking a bit worse for wear, but on the whole it is worth a visit.

I have been here many times before for dancing competitions and fitness weekends and is one of the most beautiful places, every room has lots of different character, the ceilings are all fantastic.
