Both theatres are perfect, with confortable seating, good sound, and lovely/kitch decorations. Use the elevators to avoid the steep stairs

An afternoon to remember, a real treat from my daughter. Great seats and the show was outstanding! The " Bodyguard " was fabulous and I enjoyed the staging and the music was the best. The actual theatre was in all it's glory.

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
