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.
