It wasn't my choice to see Matilda, and I expected it to be OK but I was well and truly blown away. I don't even know where to start - the music, the set, the kids, the cast! All amazing - the kids were beyond belief when it came to talent - it completely turned my expectations on their head!... More

I went her with my partner over the weekend and was truly amazed. I was in stitches at the acting and found the talent of the child actors truly amazing. To be honest it made me feel a little worthless that I could not compete with these children! Trunchball had me laughing constantly. The timing of the jokes, acting and... More

My son (11) and daughter (7) both enjoyed this a lot - but my husband and I probably enjoyed it as much as they did. The music and production were excellent. The cast was easy to like and memorable. Highly recommend this for a family theatre night in London.

I'm not sure I enjoyed the basis for this musical but the young actress was exceptional, superb, fantastic...you get the hint. It's a nice set with some great changes within the set.

My partner and I went to see Matilda yesterday afternoon and we absolutely loved it! The set, cast and props were amazing. All the actors were incredibly talented! The kids were so amazing and Miss Trunchbull was hilarious! It was the best musical we've been to. We sat at the stalls and had great views and felt part of the... More

This is a phenomenal musical! It is heart warming, exciting, funny and emotional. The cast were all fabulous and especially the amazing Matilda; so talented and brilliant to watch. The songs are fab, really capturing the spirit of the story and beautifully performed. The set is brilliant and you get completely lost in the atmosphere of it all. I didn't... More

We loved the kids, the acting and the show really evolved in an amazing way. It is different from the movie in wonderful ways.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
