We spent 90mins having afternoon tea in the ballroom, we were given sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and cakes with a pot of tea. It was a great experience to have done that the ballroom was fantastic i just wish that i could have done the dancing as well. Well worth the visit.

If you enjoy dancing then it does not matter what level of skill you are just enjoy. It is a shame that the Whinter Gardens does not provide any dancing for the public.

Really enjoyed sitting at the tables around the dance floor. There were some ladies and gents who were very elegantly dressed and I would assume regular visitors. Lots of other dancers who were brilliant too. Loved having the organist playing and then the Wurlitzer. Has a lovely scone with jam and a little pot of clotted cream. Delicious. Unfortunately there... More

Its one of the most famous places in the resort of course, so gains plenty of interest from tourists, but the ballroom is still a dance destination for all ages who fancy a spot of ballroom dancing. It costs just under £10 to be able to strut your stuff on the world famous floor, but for those who wish to... More

20 pounds doesn't seem a lot for afternoon tea but no tea pot top up at all, 1 plate of sandwiches and some shop bought cakes and it ramps up. 4 people - 80 quid - Come on ballroom you could do so much more for 90 mins and 80 quid.
