Plan B

We decided to walk home but took a detour through the Tower Buildings, areas of which are now free to the public. We viewed the dancing from the balcony of the Tower Ballroom. 

The organist was at the Wurlitzer,

the ballroom ceiling was beautifully decorated.

When the session ends the Wurlitzer descends under the stage,

while another organist takes his place, the organ and its base travelling backwards to end up over the top of the mighty Wurlitzer. DH was mesmerized with the virtuosity of the organist. I was mesmerized with the dancing.

This video shows the change over of the Wurlitzer and the Wersi organs.

From the Tower viewing gallery 

we could see the Comedy Carpet.

The inside of the Tower has, like the tramway, had a total makeover. Original features have been brought back to their former glory.

I was standing directly beneath the Tower when I took this photo.

Once we'd seen and enjoyed this Plan we decided on a Plan C.

Welcome to my new followers.


  1. Wow! I'm so there! LOL! Lovely.

  2. I was looking at Michael Portillos trip today, on Catch up. He visited Blackpool and the Tower, and was talking to someone about those quotations. Quite strange that you have put those on too.

  3. I wish I could dance, I've always wanted to learn. The Ballroom is spectacular though, isn't it?

  4. OH so nice, thanks for sharing!!

  5. Ooh used to love going to Blackpool when I lived in the Lakes, never been in the Tower though, we used to go to B&M bargains in Cleveleys, that was a long time ago. Julie xxx
