A trip to the Winter Gardens









An extra little slice of Blackpool, for anyone who didn't get enough last time.  We were staying very close to the Winter Gardens, a vintage architecture lovers dream.  So, mine.  We had a bit of a wander here one afternoon when it was gloriously quiet and easy to take a lot of pictures without people getting in the way.  Because I never get in anyone's way ever, obviously.  There's so many lovely details and decorations to see, all styled up in gorgeous art deco.  My favourite part was the plaque at the door which was dedicated to all the people who fell in love at the Winter Gardens, it was very sweet.  We didn't actually see a show because I have no patience for theatre (the over-acting makes me cringe, among other things) but I'd love to go back and see more of the venue.  I asked about doing a tour but it turned out we missed the next one by a week.  Must plan our next trip better!

    1. I could have stayed there for ages! I even went to explore the loo but the decor in there was sadly lacking.

  3. Why didn't I know about this when I visited Blackpool?! It looks amazing!

    Also, I'm with you on cringing at the theatre. If I'd had to place money on who would share my views on theatre, I would have placed it on you.

    1. It was Tam that discovered it, it's set back at bit so if you weren't staying nearby I can see how you missed it. Haha I'm glad someone gets what I mean - films are just more realistic to me! :)
