Been here last week for The Lion King. I can't say anything bad about the show because it was simply amazing. I just can't say the same as regards our seats! We stayed in the balcony and it was incredibly uncomfortable (I hadn't enough space even for my legs!), I would never imagined so much. It was really hot as... More

This is the first time I have visited this venue with my Mum in a wheel chair. The Disney and Mayflower staff were so friendly and helpfull I felt I need to write sometime. We had a great experience and look forward to come back to see another show.

I have visited the mayflower before and this was the first time I had a balcony seat. ( and last) The heat was so intense in there I felt ill. Not only that the seats are tiny and with no leg room. So if you are slightly on the larger side do NOT book this area. I ended up in... More

I watched the Lion King which was exceptional. However the temperature in the theatre is oppressive and with no air conditioning, apart from at the interval, I was on the verge of walking out. I do not know how the cast perform in such heat, but perform they sure did. I won't be attending another show here in the summer............ More

Have visited the Mayflower many, many times but on our most recent visit, we found the seats really uncomfortable. A well run establishment but considering visitors spend most of their time seated, some new seats would be most welcome

Went to see the Lion King on 24th July as an end of term treat for our 7 year old son. We had seats in row B in the balcony, it was so hot in that area we only lasted the first half and had to leave in the interval. There were people being sick and feeling faint, it was... More

Watched the Lion King in the cool while outside it was 32C, thank you Mayflower Theatre. We were able to enjoy a brilliant production of the Lion King in comfort with a booster seat for the little ones. The production was excellent as with all shows I have seen at this theatre over the years. Must look at what's on... More

The Mayflower is a classic style theatre house, we really have enjoyed watching shows and plays. The drinks are quite reasonable and the preordering for drinks at the break has never been an issue. We like to go between 6 and 16 rows from the front, and even the wider seats afford pretty good views, If you are hard of... More

Great West End Show, The Lion King, in Southampton. This theatre has recently been refurbished. Comfortable and easily accessible seating in the Dress Circle, excellent views of the stage, acoustics great. Housekeeping: toilets excellent, refreshments good, swift service for the ubiquitous ice-creams - lots of delicious flavours, booking online was efficient. The Lion King an excellent production, the well thought... More
