We saw 'This House' here this evening and enjoyed our time at The Garrick. The facilities are plentiful and easy to access, and the seats in the theatre are good. We were in the grand circle and the steps are very steep, but that's par for the course with old theatres.

Visited the Garrick to see Potted Panto. This was an excellent show with a cast of 2 plus 2 who made an occasional appearance. The show was somewhat slapstick but rib-shakingly funny, but then what do you expect when 8 panto's are visited by the cast in 80 minutes. The theatre was an excellent example of a smallish west end... More

From reading other reviews I now see that there are many seats with restricted views in this theatre (eg those past row M in the stalls), more so then many other Edwardian/Victorian ones and it appears to be a common theme that people are sold tickets without this knowledge. I had bought two tickets in the grand circle at £45... More

We took our grandchildren yesterday to see this panto. A loose term I think. In the main two actors playing all parts. Both children were bored by the play. Very few funny lines. Some fake snow falling on the first three rows was the highlight. The two actors obviously had a huge number of lines to learn but what a... More

Enjoyed this comedy based on political drama of the 70s (except for the language which was quite gratuitous at times and for us detracted from an otherwise excellent show ) . We had cheapest seats on last minute.com and found ourselves upgraded to on stage seats - overlooking the parliamentary action from the "back benches". Play was very funny and... More

We went with a party of well over 70 people to see the Chichester Festival Theatre production of This House. It is a wonderful play written with an extraordinary sense of period about the 1970s by a writer who was not born at the time. Well worth seeing. The theatre itself is very compact (we accounted for more than 10%... More

Brilliant evening. "This House" was interesting, entertaining and well produced. Theatre, as ever, looking good and generating the right atmosphere.

My fiancé and I went to the Garrick back in May to see Romeo and Juliet. Beyond the fact that the show was amazing, the theatre was fantastic as well. It has a lot of character and was a great venue for a classic play. I would recommend seeing a show at the Garrick.

I won 2 tickets to see the Entertainer via Today Tix. I was bit concerned after reading a few bad reviews online. I was in the front row and had an unforgettable experience! Sir Kenneth Branagh is just wow. He could literally stay on the stage giving a monologue and you will still love him. He is amazing and being... More

A lovely old theatre in the heart of the West End. Very friendly staff and unusually for a London theatre really good men's toilets - can't comment on the ladies I'm afraid. Stalls a down a long set of stairs but well worth it.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
