We spent a lovely afternoon having afternoon tea in the ballroom, what a wonderful experience it was, we watched many couples dancing to the iconic Wurlitzer Organ and listened to the fabulous playing of two very proffesional organists, a lovely way to spend a few hours and unwind.

The Tower Ballroom is a must for ballroom dancers visiting Blackpool. Get your tickets from the Tourist Info office across the road and save a few pounds. The ballroom is lovely but old and draughty, so if you go on a windy day dress elegantly but warmly. Food may be purchased at very reasonable prices in the ballroom so stay... More

Quite amazing that you can spend 6 hours being entertained by superb musicians and an iconic instrument for under £3! Yes, a ticket to sit on the balcony and listen to the fantastic 90 year old Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ and it's more modern counterpart played in "Strict tempo" costs just £2.95. I'd have been quite happy to have paid... More

First time visit to the ballroom to dance. Not too busy for school holidays, very daunting to get on the dance floor for beginner/intermediate dancers as we are. Really enjoyed it once we found our feet. Drinks/snacks a bit pricey.

We often visit the Tower Ballroom, it is one of the most relaxing places to be, even if you just want to sit with a drink or two and watch the dancers or join it, or to just listen to the beautiful music played on the organ, we could stay all day relaxing
