This is a very quaint but stunning theatre. It's small than most but that doesn't take away from its beauty. I sat in the dress circle, the seat itself was comfortable, it was a great view, one draw back is as a taller person with long legs there wasn't much leg room, the seats are curved as well which didn't...

Well what can say about this show! WOW would be the answer. An absolutely amazing show in this small but exceptional theatre. The cast were simply incredible and their acting was top notch. The emotion that they put into the show must surely leave them drained after each show. Jumped a numerous amount of times as the timing was perfect.... More

Went to see the matinee performance of this play and it was brilliant. Excellently done with only 3 actors. Thoroughly enjoyed it would defiantly recommend especially as we usually go and watch musicals and this was out first play.

Managed to get last minute seats direct from the theatre at quite a decent price. The theatre itself is really quite small and the seating a bit uncomfortable if you have longer legs. The Woman in Black has apparently been running for 27 years and I have to say I'm amazed it continues to be so popular. It was interesting... More

The theatre is ok, it's small and you barely have any legroom in the front row. We saw "the woman in black" and wasn't impressed, I guess that affects my impression of the theatre itself.

Booked this since it was on sale and was a decent price. I didn't have a clue about the show to be honest. We had good seats and theatre was small but cosy. We did enjoy the play it was something different to what we have already seen. My mrs got scared a couple of times which was jokes for... More

Nice theatre which is quite small - maybe 300 seats? But Woman in Black is a pretty scary production with just 3 people in it

Maybe I'm missing something here. 'The Woman in Black', seen the film which was OK. The play here bored the life out of me, and sat there waiting for something to happen. Two actors playing all the roles which just didn't work for me. You watch as the actor changed his coat each time, then took on another character role... More

We visited here to see a show. The staff were all very polite. The theatre is incredibly small but clean and comforting. Don't go thinking you will get a huge stage show it's tiny. We sat in row b and were literally on the stage so had neck ache but it was still a good experience. The seats were comfortable... More

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.
