Slow dance on ballroom floor
Sep 2021 • Couples
Arrived at ballroom door on Wednesday 15th September for our pre booked afternoon tea 🍵 and we were seconds in entering from the lovely door staff ✓ what an amazing lovely experience we had from our waitress to everyone who we had contact with. The sandwich tray and cake's were enough for anyone and what you can't eat they give you a container to take away with you, now i want to keep this a secret so don't spread the rumours lol I'd rather be proping up a bar but this time was propping up on the world famous Blackpool ballroom maby they were doing the Tango but myself and partner Sharon went on to the middle of the ballroom and had a slow dance ❤️ my god never in my life have i done that so thank you Blackpool towere ballroom when we watch strictly we can say they are dancing where we danced 10/10.

Afternoon tea at the ballroom
Sep 2021
Beautiful ballroom, nostalgic and relaxing to watch the dancers. Long queue at the bar to get a coffee, more staff required in that area in my opinion. We had afternoon tea which we found very disappointing. Shop bought cakes and scones, and meagre sandwiches, rather expensive at around £15.00 each. All in all a nice visit to the ballroom but wouldn’t bother with afternoon tea again.

Birthday Arfternoon Tea
Sep 2021 • Family
We have been coming to the Tower Ballroom for years. So Afternoon Tea seemed an ideal way to celebrate a special birthday in the family. As we all have different tastes we wondered if the food might not suit all family members, but their was a wide range of sandwiches and cakes available, and everybody enjoyed their meal.

After enjoying our Afternoon Tea, we moved to a different table and spent a few hours watching the dancing and enjoying the relaxing organ music. Chris Hopkins playing "Highland Cathedral" is truly mesmerising. This is a beautiful tune when any organist plays it but nobody plays it as well as Mr Hopkins.

The sad news was that Francis, infectiously good-humoured and thoughtful doorman has left. We always loved meeting "Sir Francis" and the Ballroom did not feel the same without him.

This certainty does not mean that we were disappointed with any of the Ballroom staff we met. All those who served us:-. Nadine, Leia, Neel and Jade - were helpful and friendly, and they deserve credit for their work in this magnificent venue.

Beautiful Ballroom
Sep 2021
The Ballroom is beautiful, with a nostalgic appeal to all of us who remember 'Come Dancing'. The decor is in excellent order, and the organist was very good. We sat by the side and enjoyed a drink, while watching the dancers.

Absolutely delightful
Sep 2021
We booked afternoon tea at the ballroom, as part of our trip to Blackpool and we were not disappointed. The manager allowed us to eat earlier than our 2 o'clock slot, as our tour schedule had changed, and the tea was exceptional.
Very attentive staff, drink prices on par with most hotels, but the highlight was watching the dancing. Only wish we could
dance like Fred & Ginger !!!

Thanks Jacki
Sep 2021 • Family
Treated my wife and daughter as both big strictly fans, venue is lovely and was a joy to watch mainly the older generation strutting their stuff on the dance floor whilst we waited to be seated for afternoon tea. I had asked when booking if non gluten option could be offered as my wife is gluten free but told this is no longer an option. On the day my wife asked our hostess jacki if she could have the sandwich fillings if possible as couldn't eat the bread, jacki came back with the normal selection and an individual gluten free selection which was over and above what we expected, she made our visit even better than we expected so if anyone is reading this that works with her pass on our appreciation again.
