I visited the show on Wednesday 3rd February 2015 with my wife and 2 daughters (aged 12 and 10). Our seats were in the stalls in Row P. Finding the theatre is very easy, no more than 10 mins walk from Leicester Square station, so if like us you wanted to grab a meal before hand it is perfect. Seating... More

The musical itself is wonderful and we (my mum and sister) all enjoyed it thoroughly. Would highly recommend the show. However the theatre was disappointing. We preordered drinks at the start for the interval and when we went to collect ours they weren't ready. Also there was no call for the second act downstairs so everybody at the downstairs bar...

Took a friend for her birthday and although the small theatre was full of children it made it even more fun. It was slick, clever and very well acted. We munched through our popcorn and slurped our icy drinks and thoroughly had an enjoyable evening. Only complaint and that applies to all theatres..... Prices on snacks are far too high!!!!!!!!

Really loved the show and I thought the children were incredible especially those who had loads of singing to do ie Matilda remembering all her words. Very good and it does not matter if you are an only adult party - the show is for everyone. Loved it.

We went for a nandos beforehand and walked down to the theatre. We had good seats the only thing is this theatre is in deperate need of a... More

Overall this is a great show, for kids. It's loud, it's shouty, there is belching and shouting and carrying on. There are lasers, there are freaky stunts, there are evil baddies (the suitably malevolent Ms Trunchbull, exquisitely played by Craige Els), there are ridiculous parents (Rebecca Thornhill and Michael Begley) and of course the gifted gal (Lizzie Wells, the night...

Friday 29th January 2016, We have just returned from the theatre and I felt so incensed I had to write this review. This must be one of the worst musicals I have ever seen. It was almost impossible to understand any of the lyrics of any of the songs that the young lady who played Matilda sang. As for the... More

Best show I have seen with the kids. We were seated in the second row of the upper deck and still had a great view. The performers were great.

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.
