Book of Mormon was fantastic...loved it.. The theatre was ok... Seats uncomfortable for me, 6' 2'' tall so very little leg room so best choose an aisle seat. Got frequently disturbed by a man who insisted on using his phone to record the show despite several warnings to stop...very annoying. When show finished they decided to block an exit so... More

Visited to see book of mormon. we were seated on row J in the circle and had an excellent view. Selection of drinks and snacks at the bar was decent and not toooo over priced. Main thing that stood out was the great staff - the ushers were so friendly and polite.

Seen Mamma Mia x3 & Book of Mormon x4 at this theatre & think it's the best theatre for value for money that I've been too based on the seating alone. It's very modern & whilst I've sat in both stalls (P28) & dress circle (A25 ,B29, C19 D26), it's the circle every time. Seating in the circle is on... More

We enjoyed the show tremendously and had a good view of the stage. The theatre is older and therefore the seats are better suited to someone 5'5'' then those of us over 6'. If you want a drink at the theatre insist that you get a real glass instead of very weak G&T in a plastic glass for which you... More

I visited the Prince of Wales Theatre in January 2016 with a friend when going to see the Book of Mormon which is currently housed here. It is a great theatre, and the show is an absolutely must see!

We arrived 15 minutes after the show started, but could easily pick up the tickets at the door and an attendant led us to our seats while explaining the story so far. Really nice venue. A bit chaotic when getting a drink during the break, but the bartenders where surprisingly good at serving people in order. However, as we knew... More

The best musical I've ever seen! The first song & dance put a smile on my face and it remained there for the whole duration of the show. So good, so professional acting / singing / dancing / playing, just perfect. We were sitting on the second row in the circle. I was positively surprised that it is that close... More

My friends and I went to see The Book of Mormon (which was AMAZING) at The Prince of Wales Theatre. Great super central location so it was easy for us to grab food and drinks before and after and a really lovely Theatre inside. We had a great time and would definitely return for more shows!

Visited theatre yesterday and was delighted with the help 'Millie' gave me as a disabled visitor. She not only assisted me to my seat but returned at interval to ensure I was ok. I hadn't advised theatre in advance of my disability so thank you Millie/staff for being observant and coming to my rescue.

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighborhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
