We have just seen The Lion King at the Mayflower what a fantastic show it was so colourful and everything about it was excellent. The only fault we would find that as they do not open the seats up until half hour before the show the bar area is so small with hardly any seating and on a hot night... More

I was impressed with the whole process from checking into the theatre and finding our comfortable seats to the organisation with the drinks at the bar at the interval which we ordered prior to the show.

First visit booked before Christmas as the show was not coming to the Channel Islands this time. Ticket price seemed steep plus booking fee, but the theatre had better comfort and view than many London Theatres. The place is beautifully furnished and maintained It also felt safer to walk to the theatre than in London. Plane fares permitting I would... More

London productions, nice bar but the air-conditioning needs improving. The foyer is much better after a recent revamp, more space.

This was the sixth time i have seen the lion king (3 times on broadway, twice on west end) i can say with all honesty, it was as good as the previous 5! I am dubious when it comes to huge successful shows being in tour due to the casting, stage restrictions, things like that, but this was almost identical... More

Saw the show Dirty Dancing while in Southampton. Very nice theatre and we got a run down on its history by a very pleasant usher. The show itself was enjoyable and we both had a thoroughly good night out.

My wife and I went to see the Lion King. I have mobility problems and nothing was too much trouble for the staff that we met. There is a separate entrance for people with access needs as well as a separate waiting area with toilet. The seats are comfortable and more so if you bring your own support cushion with... More

Always enjoyable without necessarily breaking the bank. Attracts very decent productions - saw West Side Story this time. Road connections pretty good. Big car park nearby. Southampton Central train station perfectly walk-able. Nice new foyer area now after the revamp.

We had tickets for "Dance 'til Dawn" following a lovely lunch in the Ovation Restaurant upstairs (reviewed separately). We parked in the multi storey just a short walk away. The theatre itself is large, open and airy. We had tickets in the stalls, row T seats 32/33. These are to the left of centre about two thirds back. The seats... More
