Great venue, great atmosphere, great value. Excellent bar, food, and amenities. Mama Mia show was brilliant. Blackpool is lucky to have this venue, which is one of largest in uk. Fraction of th cost of a west end show. amazed more folk do not get wise to provisional versus capital!

The Winter Gardens was hosting a really wonderful indoor illuminations exhibition, where you walk around massive gardens, animals, fish and iconic buildings all constructed from rightly brightly coloured lanterns. There is a huge Eiffel Tower, Tower Bridge, Leaning Tower of Pisa etc. – this is well worth a visit. Note the normal face value of the tickets is a bit... More

Attended a concert here and it's a lovely,historic venue. Not big,but not small,and has a wonderful atmosphere. Close to the centre of Blackpool,there's also a hotel right at the back of the venue. Had a really superb time here and would highly recommend it to everyone.
