I have visited this theatre several times and found it to be an excellent venue. I have seen mainly musical theatre but also a couple of comedians. The acoustics are great. They have recently improved and extended the foyer. The programme of shows is always up to the minute and you will definitely see top class performances here

We love live theatre & The Mayflower brings all of the top rated London & other shows to our doorstep. Huge variety of different shows for all tastes ranging from ballet through musicals such as Top Hat, rock concerts and pantomimes. A great asset of Southampton and the most popular shows can quickly sell out. We are going to the... More

Saw War Horse at the Mayflower, and every time I have seen a show there I have never been disappointed. It gets all the large shows from London coming to it, as it has the largest stage on the south coast, and is the only theatre on the south coast capable of taking the touring ballet companies. The theatre in... More

The theatre is an old-fashioned design with ornate balconies and comfy velvet. It caters well for disabled customers.The acoustics are excellent and even from the... More

This theatre has great shows, but some can be very expensive! Not London prices but this doesn't enable us 'country bumpkins' to attend very often - it has to be something really special to pay out for. The seating is comfortable, more leg room would be good, but that means a total revamp. Bar & restaurant on site too -... More

Excellent theatre, providing quality productions. If I go to this theatre I make sure that the seats are near the front either in the stalls or dress circle as you can feel a long way from the performance.

This grand old theatre is still the best venue in town and thriving for it. Whether you like musicals. Top plays, opera, ballet or big names like Derren Brown they all come here.

Having moved from London, we thought we'd miss our theatre visits but the Mayflower has all the top shows and casts, so there was no need to worry. Great atmosphere and ambiance.
