The Blackpool Tower Ballroom

The Blackpool Tower Ballroom

The Ballroom is one of the truly iconic venues of the 19th century with its beautifully decorated ceilings, sparkling chandeliers, stunning sprung dance floor and ornate balconies – there really is no other venue like it.


Built in 1894, The Blackpool Tower is one of the most iconic buildings in the UK and one of Britain’s best-loved landmarks. Now inspiring a new generation of dancers, many children know the ballroom located inside the tower building from watching Strictly Come Dancing.

There’s the opportunity to teach about history, dance, music and inspire storytelling in this fairy tale like room.

The attraction visit is self-guided.

Launching soon for 2023 visits: new lesson plans for teachers including activities and worksheets that can be used during the visit to aid learning opportunities. Lesson plans for during and post visit activities will be provided to teachers upon booking. These are designed for KS2 learning and can be adapted to KS1.

There are also some extra lesson plans available to download from the website for all teachers to use alongside their visit.
