Was here this week to see The Book Of Mormon, the venue was well kept and prices at the bar were very resonable. The show itself was hilarious, the best I've seen and am hoping to go for a second viewing. Cast were brilliant. Perfect day out.

Easily the best show in London right now. Book good seats. It's worth the money. Don't go if you are easily offended, patriotic, religious or from Uganda.... No wait, you still should. Not the place to take your gawky teenager by the way, they'll cringe watching this with their parents...

Got to see The Book of Mormon here. One of the funniest shows I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. The acoustics of the theatre were incredible and almost made it seem like they were lip syncing, it was so good.

We were in the stalls -B12 and B13 which are right next to a huge speaker. Unfortunately this meant it was very difficult to hear the words over the music. It was so bad that we complained - a member of staff gave us earplugs! Had we sat closer to the middle I am sure we would have enjoyed the... More

Loved the play however we were very disappointed with our seats. Online we booked stalls T knowing it was in the back however on the seating plan it did NOT show we were next to the sound man and his equipment ! It showed the whole row of seats ! Not fair to tourists that book online!

Only the stalls and Dress Circle none of the mass seating configurations disappearing into the roof. You feel as though you are on top of the stage from where ever you sit. The intimacy although smaller brings audience and actors closer. We saw Book of Mormons and it was well received and as you can imagine booked out. Bar was... More

Great venue, and the show was amazing. Not suitable for the young but had us in fits of laughter. Only reason this isn't five stars is the bar kept giving random glass bottles/ cups with our drinks rounds which kept delaying us getting back in to the theatre.

We went to see the Book of Mormon on a Monday evening. The theatre was full for this very popular show. We had booked late and were in the back row of the circle but still had excellent views of the stage. There is no restricted viewing in the Prince of Wales. The theatre was clean, comfortable and all was... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
