Handy to the town centre. Large main auditorium. The bar area can be a little crowded.

A great theatre that is often chosen as the pilot theatre for London productions eg Phantom of the Opera. Large enough to put on such productions, but small enough to create a great atmosphere

Great theatre, has everything you'd need. As with most theatres, upper tiers are steep and its a good idea to check seat selections for obstruction. The production was Phantom of the Opera and there was a scene where the action takes place on a balcony set very high up on stage - unfortunately those of us more than four rows back in the dress circle could not see the action because of the floor of the upper tier above us!
Bar service excellent with more than one bar in operation. The Theatre Royal is quite large, bigger than some London Theatres we have been too so all in all a very enjoyable evening.

Some really wonderful theatre, both mainstream and quirky. Looking forward to going again this Friday - always a treat. Some of the stage sets are truly magnificent.
