As a lover of SCD, this was a must on our visit to Blackpool, so my partner booked afternoon tea here for Saturday. Unfortunately, when we turned up we were told that it had been cancelled and we should have been informed. They could not be more apologetic or helpful in sorting out the problem. Their customer service was first... More

The ballroom was really enjoyable, I would try and visit when the organ player is performing as that adds to the charm and experience. To think the dancers are just locals who go and dance every day is pretty amazing. You can even get up and dance yourself too. If you're around on a rainy day with nothing to do,... More

It is really worth paying for the tea dance in the tower ballroom. The food is excellent and the music and watching the people dancing is brilliant I recommend this for anyone.

We visited for the afternoon tea dance. It was very much like stepping back in time to an age of elegance, an age before baseball caps, jeans and trainers. This is not to say that there were not young people enjoying a glimpse of what it used to be like in the “good old days”, in fact I would say... More

We had been looking forward to taking afternoon tea in the Tower Ballroom and to fumbling our way around the dance floor. Television doesn't do the ballroom justice and it was a delight to see the grandeur, to hear the organ playing and to see dancers circling the sprung floor. Despite our best endeavours, we won't be making any guest... More

I love to watch everyone dance, when we went there was an elderly couple ( about 80 ) dancing and it was a pleasure to watch them
