My partner and I went to see the Derren Brown show at the Palace Theatre and it was AMAZING! We had seats in the stalls, a great view, plus Derren moved around the floor anyway which was fun.

The mid break drinks were easy to... More

Originally built to be a opera house, the Palace Theatre was completed in 1891. Though much larger than most West End theaters, even the seats in the second balcony have excellent sight lines.

He immediately offered to call a first aider, but I refused.... More

One night show to celebrate Barry Cryer's 80th birthday. Host of famous names lined up to celebrate, plus acts including Barry's talented family. Unforgettable.

My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant Friday evening here watching the Commitments. It's a great Theatre set in an old traditional style. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the washrooms which I visited at the interval, it had obviously been cleaned during the first act.

Thank RogerfromTown

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.
