“DANCING DELIGHT”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We spent nearly two hours here, watching the dancers, a good mix of the young, keen to impress, and the seniors, a pure delight to watch. Afternoon tea good value for money, yes the sandwiches were from a packet and the cakes from the shelf, but for under £10 it was excellent

“Tower Ballroom-worth a visit.”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Really great to see the the dancers in an afternoon.
There was so much talent, I'm not into this myself but anyone can appreciate this fantastic ballroom and the ppl that enjoy this kind of thing. Worth a visit...its free if you sit in the balcony (you can see everything) but there is a charge to go into the ballroom. They do afternoon tea, unsure of cost.
At night its also free and has entertainment in there. We saw a puppet show and afterwards a magic show.

“Great music”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We like the Tower Ballroom for its great atmosphere. The music provided by the resident organists is just our kind of music and great for dancing which my husband and I love to do.

“This was on my bucket list!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Anyone who likes dancing must do this, what a dance floor!
Even learners like us are welcome, and it's even worth it to watch those who can really move!

“Old Fashioned Splendor”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Visited Blackpool Tower on a day trip. Even though you have to pay to enter the ballroom like other reviews have said, you can enter the balcony seats and see the old fashioned splendor, gold painted ceilings, appreciate the atmosphere for free etc. Lovely old photos and comfy seating area just outside - a nice place to sit after a trip to the top of the Tower and eat your sandwiches!
