Situated in the centre of the busy seaside town of Blackpool, just a stone's throw from the piers and promenade, might not seem the obvious place to find a shop specialising in the repair, restoration and dealing of violins.  Tucked away on the second floor of an Edwardian bank building it is a haven of peace above the bustle of this most famous of nineteenth century resorts.

People often travel from all over the country to purchase instruments or to have their own carefully restored. Anything from inexpensive beginner's outfits to fine old French and Italian stock, are all carefully set up in order to bring out the best in that particular instrument. Apart from the showroom, workshops and storerooms, there is a small trying room where people are able to spend as long as they need trying various instruments, with help and advice available if needed.

Opening hours: Tuesday - Saturday from 9.00 - 5.00. Closed all day on Christmas Day, Easter Day, Bank Holidays.
