Went to see wicked and the lion king recently and last years panto. A great theatre in the centre of Southampton steeped with history. It's wonderful to have this and the fantastic shows that are played here. There are a few bars (3 that I counted) which means we've always managed to get a drink. Plenty of toilets (as long... More

Saw Wicked on its last night at the Mayflower, what a great night. Although our seats were in the 'stalls' and off to one side we still had a good view of the stage. The cast were great, the story line was funny and sad with fantastic vocals from the leade and good support from the cast. A night well... More

I try to go to see a large theatre show at least once a year. Most recently the Lion King and Singing in the Rain, sat on the circle. I love the mayflower as it is in the city centre, 2 minute walk from the train station and 5 minutes from bus services. Always a good quality show - never... More

I have been to the Mayflower for more shows than I can remember. My first one was in the fifties when I was a child and not much has changed apart from the shows get bigger and better. If you want to see top shows without going to London then this is the place for you.

Saw Let it Be here and have just booked for The Bodyguard. Easy to get to and park and opposite the theatre is a lovely pub/restaurant called The Chapel (I think). Really nice place and good atmosphere.

Was so looking forward to the lion king as my favourite holidays are safari and animals. Can't believe how disappointed I came away afterwards. Just tough luck I guess on my seat choice, I'm 5.2 and sat behind a 6.7 man!! Still love the shows there but the seating is not the best.
