Winter Gardens Staff and Goods Entrance
At the end of Adelphi Street SD3036 : Adelphi Street is the staff and goods entrance to the Winter Gardens. Beneath the poster advertising the attractions of the Winter Gardens is a mural by street artist id-iom LinkExternal link

It was originally entitled "Taking the cure" SD3036 : Adelphi Street a reference to the Victorian pastime of coming to Blackpool to bathe in the sea as it supposedly had healing qualities, but alas someone took it to be a reference to drugs and the work was threatened with erasure.
The Winter Gardens, Blackpool
Written by Brian Robert Marshall

The Winter Gardens complex is a Grade II* listed entertainment and leisure venue in the centre of Blackpool. It first opened in 1878 and has been modified, updated and extended in the years since. It is now owned by Blackpool Council and managed on the Council's behalf by Crown Leisure Ltd. Despite the Victorian origins of the complex the arcade linking the main entrances is unmistakably art deco.
