Great production

We came to see "The importance of being Ernest" and were not disappointed. It's a great little theatre and we've always enjoyed the productions we've seen

Despite mny times in Bath, this was my first visit to the Theatre Royal. I knew it to be a historic buildin but was struck by the beauty of the auditorium. The seat pitches are quite generous and the sightlines, even from the upper tier, Grand Gallery, are good. They have a varied programme including both pre- and post London... More

Saw The Mother at the Ustinov theatre, which is part of the Theatre Royal. It's the smallest theatre I've been to and perfect for such intimate plays. Seats are a little firm but a generous seating space. Ticket prices - £19.50 to see a great play starring Gina McKee - tremendous value for money

We had booked seats to see The Importance of being Earnest. I booked seats via the Internet which was very easy with a good seating plan available showing such things as where the pillars are that would restrict your view. An app was also available for interval drinks to be ordered with a small discount available. Note - the bar... More

A delightful Regency Theatre, Nice friendly staff. Seating comfortable and view prefect. Watch a very funny production of Spamalot in a great little setting. A great night.

This historic theater is worth seeing, and the production I saw was first rate. The seats are comfortable and it seemed as though every seat has a great view of the stage. Staff is very helpful. This is a great way to spend an evening in Bath.

Lovely theatre with plenty of charm. The night and the play pretty much ruined by our neighbour eating a large bag of Bombay Mix - clearly it takes ages to get through such a bag (ie 10 mins from the end) and extracting the food cannot be done quietly or with any charm. Oh yes, then there is the cleaning... More

I go to the Theatre Royal on a regular basis and still to this day get a kick from it's unique atmosphere, little wonder that it attracts some of the biggest stars to perform there.

A lovely olde world theatre in the heart of bath that has retained its original character and charm. Well worth attending a performance just for the ambience of the surroundings.
