The Winter Gardens, Adelaide Street, Blackpool - Blackpool (UA)

Seaside entertainment complex built 1875-8 with later additions. Buildings were suffering from serious neglect when acquired by Blackpool Council in 2010. A major investment programme of repair and refurbishment is now underway. Parts of the complex are now restored and are well used while other areas offer scope for creative and sustainable re-use. Historic England provided grant assistance towards repairing the Spanish Hall roof which was completed in March 2019.
