The iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom dates back to 1894, and is world famous for its spectacular architecture and unique sprung dance. The Ballroom is a fantastic destination for dance fans from across the globe. The architecture is breath-takingly beautiful and the nostalgic ambience is awe inspiring.
We visited the ballroom for afternoon tea and even my grandchildren, who usually get bored easily were in awe of the magnificent surrounding, it was lovely to see everyone enjoying their afternoon tea and dancing. We ordered tea for 4 which was served quickly by a friendly waitress, there were a selection of tasty sandwiches, salad, scones with jam and fresh cream and my favourite, cake.
The tea costs £19.95 for one or £37 for two and can be booked online at blackpooltower.com.
The cakes were fresh and tasty especially the strawberry sponge.
I could have sat and watched the dancers for hours, while nibbling the delicious sandwiches and cake, however the children were very excited to explore the rest of the tower, so off up to the scary top we went.
My granddaughter was very apprehensive about standing on the glass, but was overjoyed at her own bravery when she did.
Looks like she overdid it on the afternoon tea.
After a play in Jungle Jim’s we went to the amazing circus, I don’t know what it is about this circus but I love it, I don’t generally like circus’s maybe it’s the location of the history, I told the children all day there would be a surprise at the end, and they were not disappointed, to discover the surprise you will have to visit, if you already know then shhh, don’t spoil it for others.
My life centres around memory making with the children and we had a truly amazing memorable day in the tower, look forward to my next visit.
