“nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Amazing to see the ballroom, unfortunately i am not a dancer of this style so felt it too intimidating to have go but enjoyed having afternoon tea and watching .
The architecture is fabulous.
Good to do if the weather isn't very good.

“Dancing at the Tower”

Its the place to go in Blackpool for ballroom dancing.... with the added bonus of a bar and a service which includes an excellent afternoon tea.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Sadly now you have to pay separate for this, Merlin Pass users you also have to pay for it, it is a beautiful place and the organs are worth just sitting there and listening too, High Tea is a must but sadly sandwiches are pre-packed now but still good value for money in the High Tea, it is lovely to watch the dancers whether professional or not, good laughs were had with some, we were there at a time some disabled/enabled visitors were and they really were having a good time, there were 2 downs syndrome couples who really were splendid dancers and the support from their friends was amazing to watch, staff were brilliant with them and us, love the new stairs/ lift for getting in and out of the Ballroom, ingenious idea for wheelchair users, as otherwise it is a trek to get in via the back. Grandchildren had a great time trying to dance like the others were, thank you to the couple trying to teach them.Thank you to all staff for a very pleasant couple of hours in there. Disabled visitors have to come out to go to the toilet as the toilets are downstairs.

“Pay to get in - really?”

Beautiful building but couldn't believe you had to pay to get into the dance floor! Try the balcony for a view without the price!
