Wow what can I say, just on the off chance we popped in to reception and were made to feel extremely welcome, tours of this exquisite theatre are offered every hour and Andy was very knowledgable about every aspect of the Theatre, it's history and the period. We will definitely be coming back when we are next in the area.

In the oldest working theatre in England we saw a quinticentially British "Pantomime" of Puss n' Boots. The theatre is small (seats about 200) and intimate. Attendees sit on wooden benches -- all within a few feet of the stage. Tours are available to learn the history of this cultural gem.

This little theatre takes one back in time and makes the visitor part of the production. It never fails to provide me with a good night out, and the programme is so varied that it invariably caters for visitor or local patron throughout the year. The Christmas pantomime is especially not to be missed by adults because you will become... More

We attended a production of Ibsen's Dolls House which was an enjoyable play set in the wonderful ambience of this tiny Georgian theatre,which is apparently the oldest working theatre in England. A very enjoyable experience.

We visited the theatre and had a guided tour with Geoffrey, who was very knowledgeable about the theatre's history. It was great to see so much being preserved and the original features that remained. Unfortunately, due to other commitments, we were unable to stay to watch a performance, however, I'd love to do so in the future.

The tour of the Theatre was one of the higlights of my trip this year. I've spent lots of time in England and this was my second trip to Richmond. I recommend this for anyone.

A fascinating tour conducted for just the two of us by a very knowledgeable guide. The historical details were most interesting.

This is an amazingly intimate theatre - you are virtually on the stage with the performers. Wonderful atmosphere and a very characterful building. An absolute MUST if you are visiting the area and there is a performance.
