Fantastic show in a great location. Had restricted view seats but felt the view still gave a great look at the performance. Definitely a great ballet to watch.

We went to see Rambert 2, young artists setting out on their professional career. Challenging and thought - provoking dance. As always Sadlers Wells offers a great ambience for a wide variety of dance experiences.

Liked the piece Second Breath. Had a cheap seat but good view and really comfortable. Personally, hated the first piece No Man's Land. Nearly fell asleep.

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
