The palace theatre is amazing!!! We had seats on the upper circle. We were in the G row seats 11-14 (left of pic highlighted in yellow) view without restrictions. Leg room isn't so great if you're any taller than 5ft 7. I found it ok as I'm only 5ft 1 😀 The programmes for the show are £5. There is... More

My family and I absolutely loved the Harry Potter play. Wonderful special effects. Story was good although a bit of a rip off of a certain film. Keep expecting a delorian to show up on stage:-).

We came to watch Harry Potter and the cursed child - a truly incredible play that was utterly spoiled by the terrible seats and conditions in the balcony. The balcony is of a vertigo-inducing height and the heat was absolutely unbearable - causing 2 of our party to eventually have to watch the play standing up at the back due... More

I can't say much about the show as #keep the secret, other than to say that it will be loved by any Harry Potter fan; it was brilliant! Unfortunately everyone needs to loo and merchandise at the same time, so a bit of a queue. You can take your own drinks and sweets but no drinks in cans.

Couldn't possibly tell you about the plays as JK has asked us to keep the secrets and I wouldn't want to spoil it for you. Suffice to say it's worth all the torture of trying to get tickets. The plays - Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts 1 & 2 are split over the week but if you go... More

I took my 11 year old son to see parts 1 and 2 of the Cursed Child (Harry Potter) and we were both impressed with the staff. Lots of security but they were friendly and efficient. The theatre is old, so if you are a tall person, you will have the usual issue with leg room, but it was once... More

Attended the Palace Theatre to watch the Cursed Child previews. Theatre was very picturesque and fitted the setting of the play. Staff were very approachable. Seats were comfortable and we had a good view from the dress circle. The play itself far surpassed my expectations. The staging was incredible and brought the magic to life. The actors also did themselves... More

I went to watch the new Harry Potter play with a friend - it was the best day of my year, without a doubt. If you're able to get tickets to see this play, I'd recommend trying to see both parts on the same day - I was so desperate to see Part Two after watching Part One that I... More

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.
