I’ve not been to Blackpool since I was a child and I have never been inside the Winter Gardens. As the first time seeing the building and being inside it I was blown away. I don’t believe they could have picked a better place.
The Arena was a Roman styled crafted room that holds about 600 people. There is a theme seating area inside the Winter Gardens shaped like the inside of a Spanish galleon. The walkway is throwbacks to victorian style architecture and design.
The crown jewel being the fantastic Empress Ballroom. Now I’ve seen the building many times on TV but seeing it in person blew me away. Looking up and seeing the decorative ceiling shaped like a barrel. The Balconies that sit along the side of the room and the chandeliers hanging down. The Ballroom holds early 3000 people and I hope to one day see it full of Country Music Fans. They couldn’t have picked a better place and so it gets an up.
