“Stunning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

The tower itself was shut because of the weather but we were told we could view the ballroom from the balconies for free. We spent about an hour in there climbing up and down the various staircases and trying out all the different views. Presumably those who had paid were on the dancefloor dancing, with the organist taking requests. It's lovely inside and well worth a visit.

not my normal cup of tea but i had a ticket so we went in. After a day of shopping and sight seeing it was nice to go in there and chill and watch some amazing dancers.

“Perfection daily”

Cannot better the music; it's all live and perfect tempo and variety. Look out for nights with the orchestra too, midweeks are great if you want a bit of space

“Visit of the ballroom”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Visited the Ballroom several times with my eight year old son during our break at Blackpool. We loved it! Every time we visited we sat upstairs and watched everyone dancing and watched the organists. My son couldn't believe what he was seeing, he was fascinated with the dancing. We enjoyed just sitting there and taking it all in . Well worth a visit!
