We happened to see a very good play, Eternal Love, but it is worth going to this theatre just to admire the building. It only cost £8 each for my wife and I which was also a pleasant surprise for us concessions!!

Small and intimate. Quite old fashioned which I liked. The staff were friendly. Small bar which closed after the interval.

Try and make this an essential when visiting Brighton. I believe there are tours certain days of the week. Even better book a show. these are varied and cater for all tastes. A special treat would be a prior to West End preview.

One of my most favourite theatres in UK - real Regency atmosphere with interesting shows. Very plush but NOT DUSTY (unlike some of the older London theatres)!

Saw an excellent show ('That'll Be The Day') there last night. The building was impressive, particularly inside the auditorium. Service from staff was excellent. Whilst I am not as dedicated as a lot of the fans who go to see this show, I have seen it once a year on average for the last 10 years and it is always... More

We visited to see the show tonights the night.The set up was very similar to that of theatres visited in the west end, maybe slightly smaller but it produced a great atmosphere.I thought it superior to the dome in this respect. Sat in the stalls so the view was unobstructed. No dislikes.

Attended to see Tonights the Night, great show with fantastic singers. The theatre itself is in lovely condition and obviously very old. The seats are comfortable but legroom is very limited, I have shot legs and had to constantly move around to avoid pins and needles etc _ BUT hey, when these places were built the UK population were smaller!...

The seats in the Royal Circle, although expensive, are uncomfortable. The air conditioning is non-existent and the pushing and shoving as people were leaving the theatre was disgraceful. However, the ballet itself was inspiring.
