Love the way seats are arranged. You will have good view of the stage wherever you are seated. There are also good cafes close by for a quick drink before and after shows. However, I must stress parking can be a bit of a challenge.

We have visited the Mayflower Theatre before but had forgotten how beautiful it is. It is just as good as any West End theatre and it showcases the best shows that have either just finished or are about to be on in London. Access is easy, right by the train station and just off the motorway with a wonderful restaurant... More

I took the children to watch 'Singing in the Rain' at the Mayflower. The booking's staff were helpful getting me tickets with a good view for a fair price. The theatre is very 'old fashioned' inside and has stacks of character. It was easy to get a drink during the interval and once again the staff were great. The show... More

Good acoustics and lighting make this a great out of West End venue for theatre. Not seen a play, performance, musical that has been let down by this venue.

We enjoyed a thoroughly pleasant visit to The Mayflower for what was the final day of this excellent show. The production and the players were really nice. The theatre itself is a simply wonderful old world charming place with so much entertainment history. The Beatles and the Stones amongst others guested here back in the 60's. Its great to see...

Last performance of Singing in the Rain. Full house and standing ovation at the end. Discounted tickets were about half price on Amazon and also available on the app Travelzoo. Good tap dancing, enthusiastic singing and a good story line. Set in the 1927s and the transition from the silent movies to the talkies. Particularly liked the 12 000 litres... More

I have seen many performances at this theatre . The theatre itself has had a bit of an overhaul and the seat prices can be a bit more expensive than some of the other big theatres , however its nice and local and if you can get a party of 10 or more the ticket prices are reduced.

The show was brilliant and performed in a lovely theatre. The cast sang and dance in a brilliant and enthusiastic way and, for my part, made me feel involved although (thankfully) not in the 2 rainstorms to which they were treated. An expertly staged managed and performed version of "SINGING IN THE RAIN" Bravo !!
