From the down-at-heel-decor to the non existent legroom, give this place a miss. I was aware the seats I had booked were described as "limited legroom" (gallery back row) so I was expecting to be squeezed, but I think "no legroom" would be more accurate.

If you are above average height do not book a Royal Circle front row seat. There is no leg room at all!! An uncomfortable couple of hours! Bar drinks are, as usual,... More

Murder Mystery fans will love this drama from ( Novelist Peter James ) Not for the faint-hearted. Prepare yourself for gorey scenes, several shocks with suspense. (some bad language). Very well acted - leading lady was Tina Hobley - (Holby City). If you cannot get a ticket at Brighton hopefully you can travel to another venue it will be well... More

Accoustics and view terrible, unable to follow the play at all. The second circle is the last place in this theatre to sit
