I attended a meeting at the Winter Gardens this week and was given a sightseeing tour while I was there. The 5 Acre site encloses a wonderful collection of buildings from the amazing and vast ballroom to the Spanish Galleon Room. At every turn there is a new experience, the whole amounting to an incredible fantasy melange. Bits of Deco,... More

Have been coming here in February for quite a few years and it has steadily improved. The annual magic convention is attended by about 3500 people and yet you still have plenty of room.

I strongly recommend this attraction,as it was brilliant to see,from Chinese Palace to Land of Giants, amazing how this was all done through light illumination. A lot off work and thought went into this absolutely stunning a must to visit also the laser display was out off this world.

Traditional seaside theatre with shopping arcade. Main beef being that you couldn't take drinks out of the bar and the bar had no TV's. Hence it was either get a drink and miss the boxing or don't get a drink. We got one drink and therefore the venue lost income.

brilliant cast, great seats, refreshment prices do take the proverbial but cannot impact on the show. Would definitely go again to see another show but take own refreshments.

Saw Sam Bailey in Concert last night. Absolutely fantastic. Incredible voice which should have been discovered years ago. Just kept singing. Seen Emile Sande in concert and Sam,s version of Clown equal too if not better.
