A fantastic show for all ages. The cast, both children and adults were fantastic. The set is great and the choreography and songs are brilliant. Would definitely recommend it.

The theatre was small and the view of the stage was excellent from the dress circle, my daughter of 14 and I found this a magical performance and the cast are amazingly talented. This is a must see for anyone who loves the book. I would recommend and certainly go again. My only point would be the cost of drinks... More

I took my friend as a present as she's a teacher. I was trying to be on a budget so booked the cheaper seats which were up in the gods - however the stage set is amazing so you get to see it all from above, and it didn't detract at all from our enjoyment of the show. The show... More

The theatre is stunning, the set absolutely amazing, the music was brilliant, and the cast were absolutely fabulous! Those children are BRILLIANT!! A standing ovation at the end of the show was most certainly deserved! Highly recommended for children and adults! I would quite happily watch this show again.

I bought the theatre tickets for Matilda the Musical show at the last minute. I wanted to treat someone very special. And it paid off. It was the best show ever. It was in the stalls and the entire show was entertaining from the beginning to the end. The performance was of top quality and the children acting were superb... More

Absolutely amazing! One of the best musicals I have seen. The acting, singing, set changes and overall performance were brilliant. It was so slick and smooth and the children in the musical were so talented. It felt like we were watching it for the first time and no-one else had seen it before - like a one off performance as...

The Cambridge Theatre is small, however, don't let that put you off. Matilda, if you do not know the story by Roald Dahl, as I did, may have you confused at the start. The cast, mainly children, are simply great. They sing, dance and act their way through a part horror story, part pantomime & part musical. The show is... More

During our 7-day tour in London, we have arranged to watch Phantom of the Opera and Matilda. I am a big fan of Phantom but I ended up enjoying more with Matilda. The chairs are little bit tight and the theatre was packed on a Wed afternoon show. Thoroughly enjoyed.

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.
