Fans of Strictly Come Dancing will love this Mother’s Day treat at the famous Blackpool Tower

If your mum or nan is a fan of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, why not take a step back in time this Mother’s Day and book your table at the famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom for Afternoon Tea and a waltz?

The Blackpool Tower Ballroom is known and celebrated throughout the world for both its stunning architecture and fantastic dance floor, so why not start your trip by treating your mum or nan to a delicious afternoon tea and a cheeky quick-step around the famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom this Mother’s Day? Watch our video above and join us inside one of the most beautiful rooms in the country.

Afternoon Tea includes sandwiches, cream scones with clotted cream and jam plus a choice of cake from the daily selection with a freshly brewed pot of tea or coffee.

Whether you want to glide around the dance floor, relax at your table or spectate from up on the balconies, The Blackpool Tower Ballroom is an experience you will never forget. You’ll be entranced by music of The Blackpool Tower’s Wurlitzer Organ and want to return time and time again, as so many of their regular guests already do.

Each year celebrity contestants and their professional dance partners, make The Blackpool Tower Ballroom their main aim when they take on the physically-gruelling, but super-sparkly BBC show, Strictly Come Dancing. The live show in Blackpool marks the halfway point in the competition and brings an air of nostalgia as the first ever Strictly was filmed there in the 1970’s.

We’d like to think the Blackpool Tower Ballroom Afternoon Tea would most definitely get a ten from Len, and your mum or nan this Mother’s Day.
