The area
Address
Neighborhood: Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.

We have come to see the amazing Camille O’Sullivan and have had such an awful experience because of pedantic barman who thought the world evolved around him.

Fantastic Victorian Building with Brilliant Atcs
Oct 2021
We had a wonderful time here seeing a performance of Roots which was also brilliantly creative. The atmosphere is lovey. Everyone should visit to experience theatre as the Victorians did!

Historic hidden gem
Oct 2021 • Friends
This is a true hidden gem, I discovered it when I found The 1927 were performing Roots there (also an excellent show). The historic building is beautiful and has clearly been restored thoughtfully, retaining much of its history without feeling run down and neglected. There’s a small bar, great for pre-show drinks and the seats in the hall offer a pretty good view. Well worth a visit!

Gem of a place

Over the years I have been here many times for food and drink but not actually a show.
Event booked, friendly atmosphere before the show, v friendly staff.

Auditorium is on the small side which gives atmosphere.

Definitely will go again.

Music venue with character!
Feb 2021
As gorgeous on the outside as on the inside. Beautiful and historic architecture. Been here a few times to watch live music, a thing of the past, now I stumbled across Wilton's on one of my walks across the city during lockdown, not realising it is so close to Wapping and Tower Bridge wedged in secretely in a neighbourhood in East London.

A hidden gem!

We booked a tour as part of birthday day out. Our tour guide brought the history of the place alive she explained how the place evolved over the years. she was really well informed and funny too. We would like to return to see a production there as it is so atmospheric.

Don't go if it's 'closed'!
Mar 2020
This is a beautiful old building, full of character and sympathetically restored - but that's my impression only after the briefest of glimpses. At 4.30 pm on a Saturday afternoon I went in the public entrance through doors which were unlocked. Having politely explained that I didn't have a ticket for a show but just wanted to have a look round I was told sniffily by the woman on reception that the building wasn't open to the public until 5pm. Rules are rules, I know, but what did she think I was going to do - a middle-aged lone woman like me doesn't really pose much of a threat I don't think. Given the website's statement that it receives no regular public funding this place surely needs all the friends it can get. I live in the far south-west and won't be visiting London again for some time. I would have gladly returned at a later date but with that sort of reception I don't think so.

I do love Wiltons. I have been a number of times in the past year and have always had a good time. I do, however, have a few hang ups. The seats are all crammed together so you find yourself uncomfortably trying not to sit on the person next to you. I get it, the more you can squeeze in - the more tickets you can sell (however, it would be nice to feel a little more comfortable!). No parking so if you're a disabled driver - have fun! Prices for snacks are that of any london venue (but I'd still like to pay less).
Staff are usually full of smiles and will answer any questions you have.
Can get VERY busy and overwhelming in the door way and bar.
Daughter loves the place and we will be visiting again in April.

The rebuilded music hall has a creative makeover. The area for food and drink is very actrattive too. We saw A midsummer night's dream and it was really enjoyable play.
