The Blackpool Winter Gardens is a truly unique venue with a diverse collection of nine event spaces, including the newly unveiled Blackpool Conference & Exhibition Centre. Since it opened in 1878, the Winter Gardens has been at the heart of the vibrant seaside resort of Blackpool, enchanting generations of visitors with its diverse range of events and grand architectural beauty. This historic Grade II listed venue has undergone extensive renovations and today offers event planners a wide range of iconic, elegant and impressive event spaces. With plenty of room for indoor team building challenges, this really is a special location for a conference or meeting.
The Empress Ballroom is widely considered to be the crown jewel in the Winter Gardens complex. Renowned for its regal elegance, the Empress Ballroom is a favoured choice for large scale conferences and events. Alternatively, the Arena, with its Roman-inspired decor caters for a broad range of events. With the capacity to comfortably accommodate up to 1000 guests, the Arena is ideal for companies looking to bring their teams together for team building in Blackpool. Another favourite is the Spanish Hall; a vibrant and multifaceted venue that accommodates up to 700 guests. Whilst the smaller Baronial Hall with its medieval style décor can comfortably fit 300.
The new £30m state-of-the-art Blackpool Conference & Exhibition Centre is seamlessly linked to the Winter Gardens venue, providing a modern addition to the current space that can cater for up to 2,000 attendees. Delegates visiting the Winter Gardens can enjoy a selection of meal and refreshment options. There are also bars and restaurants on-site. From the Empress Coffee Bar & Bistro, offering a perfect blend of modern cuisine and cosy ambiance, to the traditional British Pub, the Old Victoria. The latest addition, the elegant Floral Lounge, is opening soon and will serve cocktails, fine wine, beers, and champagne in a stylish setting. So, if you’re looking for a large event space to bring your team together in Lancashire, this could be the ideal location for you.
