Good shows if you don't mind paying too much, and even so tickets are difficult to get and never available at half-price kiosk.

We have seen many productions there. La Boheme is one of my favourite and my husband treated me for my birthday! This well known story of love, poverty in Paris still grips me. Set design was perfect so we're the singing. Yes, it is not a cheap night out but if you want to experience a world class production you... More

We were visiting London for the Olivier Awards and was surprised to see the ROH open the day before and was serving lunches and coffee in the atrium restaurant. The views from the terrace overlooking Covent Garden were superb. Tried to book for the backstage tour but it was full. We will definitely return to take this tour on our... More

Don't miss the Royal Ballet, one of the world's great classical companies. The ROH is a beautiful setting, with great sightlines and so much history.

Incredible evening at the Royal ballet for the new production of "A Winters Tale" dinner at Paul Hamlyn Balconies restaurant . A delightfully extravagant and memorable evening well worth the money.

Got our tickets last minute at the opera house in the morning. We watched sleeping Beauty ballet. We lined up at about 9:30 am and got decent seats. We got the 35 and 15 pound seats, which were next to each other. We found the 15pound seat actually had a better view than our more expensive seat. Fantastic show and... More

I went to watch beauty and the beast, I was on the front seat, this may not be the best ones as you get a crank on the neck, I would recommend 4 rows from the front. You also see the orchestra and what they get up to. I loved it, felt very cultured.

Saw Faust with wonderful singing and clear sight lines. Excellent acoustic. Worth the high price though obviously not in everyone's budget.

Loved sitting here and enjoying the fresh food items and also the location, right on the walk up to the museums and near Harrods too. (fairly close) Feels like a neighborhood place and not a chain. Good vegetarian choices.
