My son and I always enjoy our trips to the Mayflower and the new foyer is a lot bigger. Steep steps up to the ladies toilets at the back of the stalls. Leg room row yy also quite tight.

Whatever show you choose to see at the Mayflower Theatre, you will not be disappointed with the theatre itself. I have been many times to it, and to London theatres and the Mayflower stands head and shoulders above them.the entertainment on offer, which includes shows from London at a more reasonable price, in my experience is always first class. But... More

We tend to go to the Welsh National Opera and have never been disappointed. Opera can be expensive but the acoustics are so good at the Mayflower that you can hear perfectly well from "the Gods". The flights of stairs up there are challenging but there is a lift for those with mobility problems. They have some well known Mozart... More

Great show! But shame about the seating! You will need to see a chiropractor after suffering 3 hours in these seats!

Very regular attendee's here, and it's as good as any London theatre: first-rate shows, excellent accommodation - particularly so the boxes - and a lovely 'vibe'. It brings vibrancy to an otherwise tired part of town, along with a certain amount of class (and, when necessary, a certain amount of essential-chaviness(?) to supplement the many visiting comedians). We love it.

Really nice theatre - great vision from row 2 and love how they open all the doors at the end so you can leave quickly without getting trampled on !
