The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

Small, well organised friendly theatre.

We saw a great show, Jersey Boys. Commenting on the theatre only, clean and well organised. Tiny theatre with very tight rows. Staff friendly and helpful. Can use the QR code on the back of chairs to order drinks direct to your seats. Gave up with the toilet queue though, apparently only 3 loo’s for the Ladies, glad our hotel wasn’t far!!!

Went to see the play One Jewish Boy, it was in one of the side rooms but the room was very suited to the performance. Great space.

Small Theatre, Great Show.
Feb. 2020
A very small theatre but great for being close to the stage and actors, we had to walk on part of the stage to get to our seats. we had a good view from our seats we were only a few rows back. We saw Taste of Honey great small stage with good acting, the group of us managed to have a chat to all the actors after about play, they were very friendly to speak to. The toilets were very clean there, and they had a good small bar for drinks and coffee, we would like to go back to this theatre again.

A very pleasant intimate theatre
Feb. 2020 • Friends
It was my first visit to this theatre. We saw A Taste of Honey. It was a prefect theatre such a play. The seats are well staggered so no ones head gets in the way. I could hear every word. Toilets a bit cramped but that is typical of London theatres! The seats have no arm rests and they are a bit sit up and beg which means I found them slightly uncomfortable which may be down to my back. That was my only negative.

An excellent performance of A Taste of Honey
Feb. 2020 • Couples
We booked 2 seats at the last minute. We only paid £29.50 each and were at the back of the balcony. We could see everything and hear clearly as well. The acting was superb. It was a most enjoyable afternoon

Great little theatre
Feb. 2020
Went to Studio 1 to see A Taste of Honey
Great studio and good views and there are bigger increases between the row if that makes sense - so has good views (other theatres I always get the tallest person in front of me!!

You almost feel that you are on stage the views are good though whilst the theatre was full, my only comment was that the seats were not that comfortable and seats quite close together

Otherwise the sound was excellent and visibility good

Used Charing Cross Tube station and it is literally on of the easiest places to find once out of the station
