My wife had her 2 wing mirrors kicked off her car when parked on the embankment for a night at the theatre so that was a costly night out. Suppose it's park @ your own risk.

Thriller - Lyric Theatre: Seating Query (4 Replies)
Hi all, I am looking to buy 2x tickets to Thriller at the Lyric theatre for late April / May 2016. Buying the tickets online, the two 'best available' options I am given are seats E17/18 in the stalls and C10/11 in the dress circle. I have not really been to any theatre shows before, so am not sure which is preferred - dress circle or stalls. If anyone has any feedback / advice on which seats are better it would be much appreciated. Both options are priced the same. ...More

Row E of the Stalls is best, that's some of the best seats in the house.

Can anyone suggest a nice restaurant for an informal lunch on a Sunday before a visit to the Lyric Theatre?

Not sure what you mean by 'informal' but for that area at a reasonable price I would probably go for Brasserie Zedel.
