Managed to get fantastic deal on Tix Today app on my phone and went to see The Commitments. The theatre is fantastic with many of it's original features. Loved the cherubs around the galleries and old fashioned binoculars to hire. The show itself was fab. The sound and lights did seem loud and blinding at times but overall didn't detract... More

Brought the children too see the 3Little Pigs as part of London's kids week. Lovely old theatre, friendly staff. The musical was good, fun and very entertaining. Not as interactive as the show we saw last year(Tiger who came for tea) but our daughter's really enjoyed it still. The cast were great and the girls found it interesting to bump... More

Wow what a theatre, really get a sense of grandeur as you walk through the hallways with its marble decor and polished banisters. Got a free upgrade too for the commitments on Sunday matinee show , great view from the dress circle.

Stall after roll S, the ceiling from Dress Circle will block the top stage view. The decoration of this theatre is stunning.

we went to see The commitments and it was a real feel good factor show. I'd seen the film previously but my partner hadn't. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and it would appear so did the rest of the audience, everybody was on their feet singing and dancing. I would like to see it again before it closes in November.

Had a great night and thoroughly enjoyed the show. We booked seats in the box as a surprise for our mums. My partner popped into the box before we sat down, so he knew where take us. He found a little bit of litter, so he quietly tidied up. The staff spotted him and immediately the manager, Mark, came over... More

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.
