The Mousetrap , Agatha Christies masterpiece is something I have always wanted to see and another biggie off my bucket list. The theatre is small but rather intimate and retains a certain charm. We sat front row in the upper circle and were slightly inconvenienced...More

Last minute matinee and we weren’t disappointed. Theatre is small and intimate but relatively comfortable, there’s a small bar. The Mousetrap is a wonderful play, would recommend to anybody visiting the West End.

We sat to the far left so up against the wall if you will so there was a small part of the stage to the far left that we couldn’t see. But that was remedied by leaning forward a bit.

Need help on where to stay need theatres (6 Replies)
Hello, I am trying to find a small hotel near theatres as I have 2 nights in London and want to go to a couple of shows but would prefer to walk back to hotel afterwards, if close enough. Am looking to going to the St Martins Theatre Convent Garden for one show but am not sure about the other. Don't mind catching a train but not sure how safe they are late at night.

Welcome to the forum. I don't know much about hotels (I live here so don't use them) but Covent Garden is a pleasant area. Basically all of central London and all London transport is safe. The transport system is comprehensive so you don't NEED to have an hotel near theatreland (although there's usually something satisfying about walking home). And remember, after the final curtain the types of people travelling are going to be fellow theatre-goers.

I 'll be travellin to London 1-6 June, and staying near St Pancras Station. I've always wanted to see a local theatre play and am looking at The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie, playing at St Martins Theatre. Is it easy to get to? Where can i find cheap tickets for this show? What other shows can anyone suggest? thanks

All theater's are pretty easy to get to by Tube. If you don't have a specific show in mind, I'd go to the half-price booth and check out what was on for that day .Yes, the plays there have been on forever but I've also seen some quite good productions of "An Inspector Calls" and "Evita". I'd also take a peak at the National Theatre which has more "local" plays.

Has anyone been to a performance? Is it worthwile? The ticket price is rather steep I'm afraid. So I would like to find out more about the perfomance first. Thanks

There are far far better things to see in London (eg War Horse). The Mousetrap just keeps going on its reputation as the longest running play in London (and probably the world). It isn't even one of the better Agatha Christie whodunnits.
