The Winter Gardens have been significantly renovated over the past few years, and the work continues. It is a stunning confection of Victorian Architecture, with several exceptional spaces for entertainment. The dissappointment is the supporting facilities. There are cafes and bars, but the offer is limited, as are the opening times. I't a pity, because this venue should be a... More

The empress ballroom is magnificent. The dance floor is great. Staff very friendly and helpful. Shops and bars easily accessible. Ice cream and chocolate available outside the ballroom. Lots of restaurants that seemed to offer good value for money.

This was a great evening in a beautiful venue, the security was discreet and the concert had been moved from a standing venue to a seated one which was a big improvement. A great atmosphere , with an excellent support act ( Dirty Harry- a Blondie tribute ) and the boy's from Edinburgh themselves. Fantastic !

Got to Blackpool on Saturday and only booked the tickets on Saturday afternoon. They were decent seats too. Watched Shawshank Redemption. This was a great show and the performance was amazing. I recommend everybody to book something to their taste to watch at the theatre there. The only thing I didn't like was the popcorn. I paid a lot of... More

Visited for the first time and found the venue to be great based on it did bot matter where you stand always close enough to see the stage. The sprung floor and sound quality were amazing! Lots of bars which were a bit slow but not as bad as most music venues of this type.
