Whilst in Blackpool decided to see the overtones, very enjoyable, but this review is of the winter garden complex. Sat in the back row seat 34/36, threadbare seats and the armrest completely broken off, Blackpool you should feel so embarrassed by the seating!!!

We visited here for a one off show to raise money for cancer research. It was a sell out and very crowded inside the theatre auditorium. Seats were close but adequate. The main concern for us was the way everyone was expected to leave the body of the theatre inn the same direction through small doorways. If there had been... More

We went here for the big Benidorm reunion and we're very impressed with it all, We paid for V.I.P front row seats and as expected they were superb,loads of leg room,the stage was large,there was a bar and you could take drinks into the venue, The toilets were large and clean, We would definitely return.

The actual building has been restored successfully, and on first viewing, would be considered impressive. However, I feel that although I would agree with this comment in the public area, attention needs to addressed in the viewing area. Being 6ft 7inches tall, I found the seating claustrophobic, restrictive and uncomfortable, no leg room, no air conditioning. The seating area needs... More

On your visit to Blackpool, it is an absolute must to visit the exhibition of Chinese lanterns at the Winter Gardens. It is hard to explain the displays as they are so good. Take your camera to take lots of shots that you can recall the pleasures when you return home.
