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

The feel of this place is amazing. It's like somethings never change. Even as a non-dancer the ballroom is certainly worth a visit.

Popped into the ballroom as couldn't visit the tower and not see it. Only stayed about 10 minutes and didn't have the afternoon tea, though they looked wonderful. The staff were amazing and found time to tell us all about strictly's visit even though they were busy. We took the kids in later as the balcony was closed and they... More

Let me start by saying that the tower ballroom was amazing and by far the nicest place I have ever danced. Unfortunately Philip Hurst came very close to ruining the whole experience. the dance workshop was a complete waste of time as there were too many people to possibly follow what he was doing. I was also amazed that he... More

Beautiful ballroom. Amazing to watch the dancers. Love the decor and the history behind the ballroom. Looks like Merlin are maintaining it well. The organ disappearing through the stage floor is entertaining whilst playing music. Always worth a visit with our Merlin passes.

After reading some of the comments regarding afternoon tea at The Ballroom I was a little concerned I had booked it. But we were not disappointed. It was great and we had the best time.

We had a lovely afternoon at the Afternoon tea and dance event. The food was tasty although service was practically non existent but didn't really matter. We loved the dancing. As a tip for the future you can go in and dance anytime although your table might not be ready till 2.30pm. Take advantage to get more dancing in. This... More

We had family visiting from the South of England who wanted to see where strictly was filmed. We paid the £2.95 spectators entrance fee, kids were free. Well worth it. We shared a bottle of prosecco and watched all the dancers from the first balcony. Many of the songs were recognisable and it was all good fun. The dancers were... More

Made a visit to this amazing ballroom for afternoon tea with friends, celebrate their 25th Wedding Anniversary.
