How to Visit Strictly’s Blackpool Tower Ballroom Afternoon Tea Review (2024)!

By: Author Sophie Pearce

Posted on Last updated: January 1, 2024

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for details.

Strictly Come Dancing fans, did you know that you can visit the famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom that features in the series each year?

Not only that but you can enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea in their opulent ballroom while you’re serenaded by the iconic Blackpool Wurlitzer Organ. 

While you dine, professional dancing couples take to the floor to perform routines and you can even practice some ballroom dancing moves for yourself.

Here is a complete guide on how to visit Strictly’s Blackpool Tower Ballroom and an honest Blackpool Tower afternoon tea review! 

Strictly Come Dancing Blackpool Tower Ballroom Afternoon Tea Review

Blackpool Tower Ballroom history

The Blackpool Tower is one of the UK’s best-loved landmarks that opened in 1894, back then the original Blackpool Tower Ballroom was a lot smaller. 

The present Ballroom that we see today was designed by Frank Matcham and opened in 1899. 

It measures 120 x 102 feet and is made of over 30,000 separate blocks of mahogany, oak, and walnut. It’s also lavishly painted in gold with red velvet seats.

Above the stage, you’ll see the Shakespearean quote “Bid me discourse, I will enchant thine ear” from the sonnet Venus and Adonis plus the names of 16 composers around the room. 

Blackpool Tower Ballroom

It’s now world-famous and is a dream for any professional dancer to perform in with its uniquely sprung dance floor. 

Blackpool Ballroom has also become popular in recent years with fans of Strictly Come Dancing as it features in the talent show.  

Sometimes, it’s hard to remember that Strictly Come Dancing isn’t the BBC’s first rodeo of a ballroom dancing show.

This new popular TV show, which started in 2004, is a remake of BBC’s Come Dancing talent show which ran on and off from 1949 to 1998. It was hosted in regional ballrooms across the country including Blackpool Ballroom!

Today, Blackpool has become synonymous with the new Strictly Come Dancing series, and fans of the show all want to visit this spectacular theatre. 

Blackpool Tower Ballroom

Blackpool Ballroom in Strictly Come Dancing 

Blackpool has been a world-famous dancing destination for over a century but it has had a resurgence of popularity in recent years due to BBC’s annual Strictly Come Dancing TV Show!

This is when celebrities join up with professional dancers to practice routines like the Cha-cha-cha, Jive, Rumba, and Quickstep and participate in a sparkling 13-week competition! 

Strictly Come Dancing visit Blackpool Ballroom every year as part of the show, usually mid-way through around late November.

It’s always a special episode in the season and seeing the dancers perform in this opulent theatre is a treat for the senses. 

So, Strictly fans will absolutely love visiting the Blackpool Tower Ballroom to see where the stars take to the uniquely sprung dance floor and perform their expert routines in front of the judge’s panel! 

Blackpool Tower Ballroom

How to visit Blackpool Tower Ballroom in Blackpool

The great news for Strictly Come Dancing fans is that the Blackpool Ballroom is open to the public and so you can visit when in Blackpool throughout the year.

Blackpool Tower is a really easy attraction to spot for miles around as it (quite literally) towers over the town at 158 metres high or 518 feet! It even lights up like a beacon at night time. 

You can head to the central Blackpool Promenade to visit the Blackpool Tower and you’ll find it near the Comedy Carpet, Coral Island, and the Central Pier. 

It’s also around a 1.5-mile or 30-minute walk from Blackpool Pleasure Beach if you were visiting the theme park too. You may see it from The Big One!

Blackpool is located in the North West of England in the county of Lancashire. You can drive there via the M6 or take a direct train from either Manchester Picadilly or Liverpool Lime Street. 

There is no dedicated Blackpool Tower car park but there is plenty of paid parking nearby. 

The closest would be Houndshill Multi-Storey (4-minute walk), or you have Central Car Park and West Street Car Park.

Blackpool Tower Comedy Carpet

Blackpool Ballroom ticket prices

A common question that people ask when visiting the Blackpool Tower is if you have to pay to go inside the Blackpool Ballroom and the simple answer is yes.

The Blackpool Tower has five attractions inside, including the famous Blackpool Tower Eye, but you can pay for attractions separately on your visit.

You do have to pay to enter the Blackpool Tower Ballroom and tickets are £9 an adult. Children (3 – 14 years) are FREE to enter and one paying adult can bring up to two children with them free of charge.

Blackpool Tower Ballroom

You can either book tickets online before you arrive or on the day at the ticket desk.

Booking online may give you a slight discount and will avoid waiting in long queues, especially in summer. 

Remember, if you’re a Merlin Annual Pass holder you get to enter most of the Blackpool Tower attractions for free or with a discount.

But, if you really wanted to visit the Blackpool Ballroom in style then I would book the Blackpool Tower afternoon tea experience. 

Click here to book your visit to the Blackpool Tower Ballroom!

Blackpool Tower Ballroom

How much is the Blackpool Tower afternoon tea?

The Blackpool Tower afternoon tea is £50 for two people (£25 each) and that includes your ballroom entry tickets which are usually £9 a person.

So, if you subtract the £18 from the £50, the afternoon tea is technically only £32 for two which is a bargain in my opinion! 

There are slight discounts if you wanted to book for more people. You can book up to 8 people per sitting. 

For example, if you book for 8 people the price is £160 in total. That’s only £20 per person for an afternoon tea and Blackpool Ballroom entry ticket. Not bad at all. 

Merlin annual pass holders get their afternoon tea slightly cheaper at £14.95 per person.

Blackpool Tower Ballroom afternoon tea review

Personally, I would highly recommend booking your time slot online and in advance of your arrival to guarantee a seat! 

You can book 15-minute slots from 12 pm – 2.30 / 2.45 pm daily for the afternoon tea experience. 

Your table is reserved for 90 minutes but you’re free to explore the ballroom afterward for as long as you want. 

Note: You don’t get access to the Blackpool Tower Eye with a Blackpool Ballroom ticket or Afternoon Tea experience, you would need to purchase this ticket separately.

Blackpool Tower Ballroom Afternoon Tea Review

Blackpool Tower afternoon tea review

So, what’s included in the Blackpool Tower afternoon tea? Well, you get entry to the Blackpool Ballroom, a pot of loose-leaf tea or coffee, and a three-layered cake tier of High Tea treats!

We both went for the loose-leaf English Breakfast tea to go with our afternoon teas and we loved the fact that it came on matching Blue Willow crockery. 

The first tier will contain your finger sandwiches which included ham & cheese, tuna mayo, egg mayo & cress, and cream cheese & cucumber. These were all served on white or rye bread. 

Then on the second tier, you get a set of two scones which included jars of clotted cream and strawberry jam. Ours were plain but we would have preferred fruit! 

Then, you get a selection of mini cakes and treats including a macaron, chocolate brownie, and mini cheesecakes. 

Blackpool Tower Ballroom afternoon tea review

Again, I think we were meant to be given a choice of raspberry, lemon, chocolate, or vanilla but we were given a randomly selected cheesecake! It still tasted good.

While we were eating our tea we got to hear ballroom music and see couples dancing on the dance floor! As the floor was so springy our crockery kept shaking which was funny. 

It’s good to note that there are three to four rows of afternoon tea tables. So, if you’d like a front-row seat for the dancing, I’d try to book early or put in a request. You don’t want to be shoved in at the back. 

Overall, we really enjoyed the afternoon tea and thought it was well worth the money. It was such a special experience to dine in the Strictly Blackpool Ballroom! 

Blackpool Tower Ballroom afternoon tea

Watch couples dancing to the Wurlitzer Organ or join in

While you’re dining on your Blackpool Ballroom afternoon tea or visiting the ballroom for a tour, you can watch professional couples dancing on the ballroom floor! 

You’ll be serenaded by live music by organists including the famous Blackpool Wurlitzer Organ. 

Blackpool Tower’s first Wurlitzer Organ was installed in 1929 before it was replaced by the current organ that dates back to 1935.

It has 154 keys and 120 speaking stops to control 14 pipes! It’s a mighty instrument and makes such a great sound with the acoustics inside.

At certain times, you’ll find professional dance couples taking to the ballroom floor and waltzing around while you dine. It was just like experiencing Strictly Come Dancing! 

If you wanted to have a go at ballroom dancing yourself, you’ll get the chance to be taught by some of their instructors. 

But, if you’re too shy for complex steps they also play the Hokey-Cokey which is quite an easy number to join in on!

Blackpool Tower Ballroom

Blackpool Ballroom tour

Whilst the couples are dancing, you can take a self-guided Blackpool Ballroom tour and explore the theatre and its three floors.

You can’t enter the top floor (also known as ‘the gods’) but you can sit on the first-floor seats to get a great view of the dancing below.

Once the couples have finished dancing or taking a well-deserved break, you can get a photo on the famous Blackpool Ballroom steps!

I saw so many couples doing the Strictly Come Dancing pose and saying ‘Keeeep Dancing’ it was so sweet. 

Blackpool Tower Ballroom

Blackpool Tower Ballroom bar / café

If you didn’t fancy splashing out on a Blackpool Ballroom afternoon tea, there is a small bar at the back of the ballroom. 

They sell hot drinks and snacks to purchase throughout the day as well as alcoholic drinks.

It’s a great place to relax whilst you watch the Blackpool Ballroom dancing and listen to the Wurlitzer Organ! 

There is a selection of tables that can be found surrounding the ballroom floor and it provides great views. 

Blackpool Tower Ballroom

Blackpool Ballroom opening times

The Blackpool Ballroom is usually open all year but in winter you can only access the Tower Ballroom on select dates.

Typically, the Blackpool Ballroom is open from 10 am – 5 pm in the summer season (April – October) and then open from 11 am – 4 pm in the off-season. It shuts earlier at 2 pm on Fridays. 

It’s always best to check the Blackpool Tower calendar for opening times on their website to make sure it’s going to be open on your visit.

If you wanted to see the Wurlitzer Organ, they also have a calendar for who will be playing on the day you can access here.

Did you know that the Blackpool Tower has more attractions than just the famous Blackpool Ballroom? 

It opened in 1894 but is now owned by the Merlin Group and so you’ll find 11 different rooms inside and 5 attractions to enjoy. 

You have the Blackpool Tower Circus, Blackpool Dungeons, and Dino Mini Golf.

Blackpool Tower Circus

Strictly Fans will love to visit the Blackpool Madame Tussaud’s and enjoy their Strictly Come Dancing Experience. 

My favourite was the Blackpool Tower Eye where you could travel up over 380 feet to the top of the Blackpool Tower to experience their Skywalk. 

Blackpool Tower eye

They had a glass walkway that allowed you to look vertically down the tower to the Blackpool Promenade below. It was pretty scary but also super fun!

Then, you can head up even further to the very top of the Blackpool Tower in their observatory. 

On a clear day, you can see the North and Central Pier, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and even over the Irish Sea to the Isle of Man.

Blackpool Illuminations 

My friend Tilly and I visited the Blackpool Ballroom as part of our visit to see the famous Blackpool Illuminations.

Its foundations date back to 1879 and today it’s known as the greatest free light show on Earth.

You can experience over 6 miles of colourful lights on the Blackpool seafront including hanging lights, tableaus, water shows, and screens. 

You’ll find characters from Nickelodeon, Sooty and Sweep, and Circus Performers as part of the trail.

You can either walk, drive or take one of their illuminated trams along the promenade to enjoy the twinkling lights.

We visited at the end of November so we could also enjoy their Christmas By The Sea event which had a lively Christmas Market, colourful light projections, and more. 

Blackpool Illuminations

Looking for more things to do in Blackpool?

Blackpool is a popular seaside town to visit all year and there is a wealth of distractions to enjoy.

You can visit the world-famous Blackpool Pleasure Beach family theme park, explore the arcades on the Central Pier, or discover where Sooty was born on North Pier.

Blackpool Illuminations

There is also Coral Island , a pirate-themed amusement park that is perfect for a rainy day. They have bars, restaurants, rides, and games.

I particularly enjoyed their Pirate Flyer ride that takes you above the whole arcade.

You can play games to win tickets and exchange them for prizes. I ended up winning over 60 tickets in one go on the 2p machines!

Or, why not relax on Blackpool Promenade when the sun is shining? You can buy candy-floss, ice-creams, and Fish n’ Chips on the Prom! 

There’s always a good reason to keep coming back to Blackpool.

Visiting the Blackpool Tower Eye

The Blackpool Tower Eye is an amazing experience for those wanting a view of Blackpool from the top. The Blackpool Tower is accessible to both abled bodied people and those with disabilities such as myself. You can visit the Blackpool tower using a wheelchair and there is a special lift to help reach the 4D cinema experience that everyone watches before travelling up to the Blackpool Eye.

visit blackpool ballroom

The 4D Cinema is a fantastic little show to get you excited and ready to visit the top of the tower. Once you have queued and made your way to the Tower Eye you can test out the famous glass SkyWalk and walk around the tower to see the whole of Blackpool.

visit blackpool ballroom

We loved the views from the top of the Blackpool Tower. This was a fun and unique experience. At 390 feet in the air we had the most amazing views of the beach, the famous promenade, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and much more.

visit blackpool ballroom

You can stay at the top of the tower for as long as you like. There is a bar for drinks and for those wanting to go a little higher, you can climb some stairs to see the very top of the Blackpool Tower.

Once you travel back down, you get to visit the Blackpool Tower Store and can purchase a range of Blackpool souvenirs such as a trophy or medal for conquering the Blackpool Eye. Individual ticket options start at £8 per person.

Visiting the Blackpool Tower Ballroom

The Blackpool Tower Ballroom is one spectacle you don’t want to miss. In fact this had to be one of the highlights of my visit to the Blackpool Tower.

visit blackpool ballroom

The Blackpool tower ballroom can be a a wonderful experience for both adults and children. Built in 1894 the Tower Ballroom is famous for its grand architecture and popular dance floor. My daughter was excited to visit the Blackpool Tower Ballroom which is   famous for it’s roll in BBC’s Strictly Come Dance competition.

We visited the Tower Ballroom which was stunning to view and my family enjoyed listening to the Wurlitzer organ music as we watched professionals and visitors dance to the ballroom music.

Afternoon Tea in the Blackpool Tower Ballroom

The Blackpool Tower Ballroom is a great place to have afternoon tea and we did just that. We were seated in a lovely section of the ballroom and enjoyed a gorgeous afternoon tea with unlimited drinks and delightful refreshments.

visit blackpool ballroom

The afternoon tea experience was a real highlight and included freshly made sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream and a collection of gorgeous desserts.

My husband and daughter had fun testing out the dance floor and the food is certainly something you wouldn’t want to miss when visiting the Blackpool ballroom.

Visiting Blackpool Tower Jungle Jims

Jungle Jim’s is a fantastic destination for kids to release some energy while the parents sit and take a break.The Jungle Jim playground is a fun play area for kids full of activities, slides, ball pools and safe areas to climb.

visit blackpool ballroom

We visited Jungle Jim’s for one hour and enjoyed a drink while our daughter made the most of her play time.

I think it’s great to be able to take the kids to Jungle Jim’s in Blackpool Tower between other attractions which require walking and relaxing in the jungle Jim’s seating area was a welcome break for the adults.

Visiting The Blackpool Tower Circus 

Visiting the Blackpool Tower circus is a fantastic experience and one you don’t want to miss. Hosted by  Mooky and Mr Boo,  the circus is both fun, exciting and thrilling to watch.

Whether your looking for a good laugh or wanting to see exciting acrobatics his is the show for you.

visit blackpool ballroom

We enjoyed the 2 hour circus performance and our favourite parts of the show had to be the Star Wars themed trampolining along with the stellar performance by the contortionist.

We were in constant hysterics laughing and enjoying the humour of The Blackpool Circus and with a 15 minute interval we were able to get our daughter’s face painted and purchase some half time refreshments.

visit blackpool ballroom

One of the performances that had us on the edge of our seats was performed by Tarzan. His amazing acrobatic skills were awesome to watch and we even had a chance to say hello to Tarzan after the show which was brilliant.

Visiting the Blackpool Tower Dungeon

The Blackpool Dungeon is a scary and unique experience for adults and children over eight years old. We entered the Blackpool dungeon and began the frightful journey with some quick photos.

visit blackpool ballroom

As we travelled to the dungeons we moved from room to room as we experienced great acting and ghoulish behaviour watching scenes about the Black Plague, learning about Saxons and Vikings and seeing the court room and dungeons.

The Blackpool dungeon keeps you on edge as you experience frights and scares and learn more about the history of Blackpool. There is also a drop dead ride at the end of the dungeon experience for those brave enough to try it out.

visit blackpool ballroom

We ended our Blackpool dungeon experience by picking up a photo we had taken and sitting in the tavern at the end of the attraction.

Visiting Madame Tussaud’s Blackpool

Madame Tussaud’s in Blackpool is one place you don’t want to miss. The wax works has an amazing collection and I was very impressed with the art and skill used to create the wax sculptures.

visit blackpool ballroom

From famous television stars, to football players, to musicians and scientists, you’re sure to find a wax work of someone you admire. My daughter really enjoyed finding the Queen along with William and Kate. Her favourite wax figure had to be Ariana Grande.

Visiting Sealife Blackpool

SeaLife Blackpool is an amazing place to visit with plenty of Sealife to see. During our last visit to Sealife Sylvia loved seeing the Nemo fish along with the starfish and the sharks.

SeaLife Blackpool has an array of creatures from Stingrays to seahorses to crabs. You can view open top tanks, walk under certain aquariums and even take part in a Shark Experience if your brave enough to try it.

I love that Sealife Blackpool has such a great variety of Sea creatures and there are so many facts to read and learn as you go on your adventure. The site is accessible to wheelchairs and there are opportunities to have fun photos at the attraction.

Top Tips for Visiting the Blackpool Tower

When visiting Blackpool Tower I’d make sure you have plenty of time. Maybe split up the attractions you visit over a period of several days. Make sure you have a drink bottle and maybe invest in a refillable slushy if you’ve got kids.

Don’t try to cram too much into one day and try alternating between attractions which involve walking and attractions which have time sitting down.

Most of all have fun and enjoy the time you have. Family holiday’s are precious and creating new experiences and memories is all part of the fun of visiting Blackpool.
