Reviewed 25 August 2013

went in the tower recently not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised when we went into the ballroom...first of all if you just want to take in the atmosphere its FREE to watch from the balconies , where we sat and watched the ballroom dancing for 2 hours ... i had to drag the wife out -she was loving it ..If you want to dance on the ballroom floor its £12.95 each ...there is a balcony cafe where you can have a tea and cake or a beer!!! overall the ballroom is beautiful and well worth a visit....( dont pay if you just want to watch -its free) put some pics on and a video of the ballroom dancing !! helpful?

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

It really is an exceptionally beautiful place. On an 'every day' day the Wurlitzer is played every hour or so which I feel is a nice touch. I had to mark it down though because the bar staff are slow and the price of drinks is as high as the ceiling in there!

I would recommend it for a quick (romantic) coffee...you'd probably only be able to afford one anyway.

“Ballroom dancers.”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Went to the Tower Ballroom to watch the dancers and listen to the wurlitzer. We had an enjoyable and entertaining couple of hours watching some of the professional and not so professional dancers twirling the ballroom. If you want to while away a bit of time I would recommend you go for a visit.

The wurlitzer, fantastic music, Afternoon tea spot on.
A great place to spend a day with friends or if you just want to watch, go up on the balcony for free!
