I'v paraglided with Reaction at Oludeniz six times before, however my last flight was just brilliant, the flight lasted 80 mins and we flew up to 2500 meters. The sights I saw were awesome flying way above Babadag over to butterfly valley and more. The best part was flying the paraglided over the Blue lagoon. What a ride.

The show was great in lovely old Theatre. Be carefull however with nearby parking and ensure you understand conditions as recently visited Torquay to see a show, paid £7.40 thinking it was the correct fee for our stay but a few days later received a letter stating that I had overstayed by 49 minutes and was being fined £100 or...

We went and saw 'Pasha - Life Through Dance' on May 13th at the Princess, and the theatre was lovely! It's in a wonderful setting right on the front, so wonderful views whilst you're waiting. The actual theatre itself is very old fashioned and quaint, so provides a lovely ambience, and although small, this actually gives quite an intimate atmosphere... More

Good concert. Enjoyed it. Did not eat at venue so cannot comment. Drinks on pricey side. Venue was clean, well presented. Staff were tidy and helpful. Portions of chips available for purchase to take away. Nice touch. We purchased some which had freshly come from the kitchen, they were lukewarn.

Would have rated this as 'Terrible Minus ' if possible but apart from, so called 'top of the bill' Billy J Kramer, the rest of the show was amazing, truly great!! Nobody goes to see these shows to expect a 60s performance from their favourites, but to at least be entertained. Not only was his performance & appearance disgusting, he... More

Very pleasant birthday night out, good band nice surroundings. Seats a little old but so are many London Theatres, well priced. 'facilties' down some narrows stairs awkward crowded access. Good bar and cafe facilities, easy parking. Pleasant surroundings next to marina.

A very intimate & interactive show for ALL ages. Prepare to laugh loads & be frightened too. The narrator tells a wonderful story & the dinos are very lifelike & HUGE. Well done Princess Theatre for staging this!!! :D

Staff are very friendly and helpful,lovely cafe/bistro for meal or drinks although did think £5.50 for 2 eggs and chips was a bit excessive! Toilets need upgrading along with theatre interior..Seating is well past its sell by date,but I guess... More

We visit this theatre 7 or 8 times a year as it attracts a good variety of shows, plays and concerts. Most recent was 'Oh What a Lovely War and the Chicago Blues Brothers'. Some of the decor is a bit dated, but the auditorium is a nice space with decent sound and quite comfortable seating. There are a couple... More
