The Theatre Royal feels like a step back in time. Its gorgeous. The auditorium is compact and has an intimate atmosphere. Its beautifully restored with a spectacular chandelier. My only criticism is the lack of leg room and the odd pillar which can be restricting .

An absolute gem of a theatre and we were so lucky to see the first night of a world premiere of a new set of Ayckbourn short plays - directed by the Author. Even luckier as we'd won the two tickets in a raffle!

Myself and my Mother visited Bath this weekend and went to watch the Nutcracker at the Theatre Royal. We both thought that the theatre was beautiful and the staff were extremely helpful. We were sat in the Grand Circle in Seats C1 & C2 - and the view was just perfect, we could see the stage very clearly and didn't... More

Always a delight to visit the Theatre Royal. Bath is a magic place anyway and its theatre is very much part of that. The auditorium and stage are big enough to host major productions and yet you never feel distant from the action on the stage. The recent refurbishment means it has good modern facilities even though you are in... More

I love this magical theatre - a much overused word but The Theatre Royal Bath deserves it. Just to be there is a joy. As soon as you open the glass and wood framed doors the electric excitement begins. The interior is breathtakingly beautiful and recently renovated at great cost so don't baulk at the price of any ticket -... More

First visit to this Theatre (second time seeing Frank this year) not much to add that hasn't already been said, we were high up in the Gods, good view and sound, drinks are rather pricey, £4.50 for a bottle of Bath Ale, stewards very helpful and friendly, an enjoyable night out overall, and situated opposite Schwartz Bros Burgers for a...

Although the theatre was very comfortable and nice the Wooster and Jeeves production was awful. We had our drinks at the interval then left.
