It never ceases to amaze me how actors manage to memorise their many, many lines but when it's kids doing that exact same feat I just think it's amazing! Matilda is a wonderful musical which suits all ages. The story is easy to follow and yet never lets you drift off. The staging is very good with lots happening throughout... More

We took 2 of our grandchildren to see this yesterday. The acting was excellent. How old are those children to be so confident? Scenery and lighting top notch ,not cheap! But which London show is cheap. We sat up in the circle and could see very well.

Watched the show last week with my family. What a treat! Great acting, wonderful choreography, funny, touching, energetic, just amazing! If you are going to watch one musical with your children in London, this is the one to see! Just one note about the venue though... it has a very dusty/moisty feel to it. The seats are not comfortable at... More

Such a great show!!! I went with no expectations of the musical and I enjoyed it so much, the special effects and scenery are incredible. The theatre is really lovely too, had great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly to everyone.

Sat in the stalls with great view of the stage. Researched the seating plan which doesn't reflect how small and intimate the theatre is. The show was very lively with lots of energy radiating from the cast. Although this musical appears to be aimed at children we thoroughly enjoyed it, even though some of the singing was suspect at times.

The show was brilliant, with an enthusiastic cast and audience. We went to a Sunday matinee and so there was an especially high proportion of children in the audience, but I think this added to the ambience. We found the seats comfortable. Wheelchair access: The staff were very welcoming, showing us where everything was and looking after the wheelchair as... More

The whole family like musicals so after hearing great reviews from friends, we went and not disappointed. The staging and the kids are fantastic. Great show. We were up in the gods but sound and visuals was still good. A real treat.

Great show especially for children. Very enjoyable even without kids, though there will be a lot of children all around you!

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
