Traditional, in need of a bit of an overhaul, but great!

We manage to get to the Royal four or five times a year; I first went more than 50 years ago. It feels and looks exactly the same front of house, but the seats have gone from being big and comfortable, when I was a slim teenager, to hard, squished and too close together to suit the larger size of...

Such a beautiful theatre - like stepping back in time to a more genteel time - we saw the mousetrap which was fabulous - loved the experience.

Living locally I've been to this venue many times and this review is a generic one, not focusing on a single visit and with no reference to the show I attended most recently. Venue - well placed on a pleasant street, parking nearby but expensive - that's parking in Brighton sadly, the Colonnade Bar next door has a lovely traditional... More

This was a Christmas present for my husband. We travelled up the day before and made a weekend of our stay. The Theatre is absolutely fantastic. One of the most beautiful theatres in the UK. We go to the theatre regularly in London (off to see Warhorse again tomorrow) but the Theatre Royal stands out as a real jewel. Has... More

A small theatre but comfortable and well appointed. Its production values are high and all the plays I have seen there have been excellently produced and, mostly, well acted.

My partner booked the blue package at £54 per ticket, with seats E10 and 11 in the Royal Circle. At the bar, we were given our complimentary drink and told our 'boxes' would be brought to us in the interval. I didn't want wine with mine, so was to be given a water and ice-create voucher. Come the interval, no... More

Great venue and a great atmosphere. We saw Rocky Horror Show and it was fantastic. Old style theatre with bundles of character. Well worth a visit.

What a fabulous theatre, lovely surroundings & really feels like an old time theatre rather than "new & square"... Drinks & snacks well priced, the show was amazing & we had a great evening from start to finish. Thank you Theatre Royal!

I've seen Rocky Horror at this theatre five times and I didn't think it could get any better but man this year they knocked it out the park. It's an old school theatre - not easy to get around but the seats are comfortable and the staff great. Greta location great show.
