A lovely theatre which offers what you expect. Decorated wonderfully and it’s like being taken back in time. Comfy seats with a good view. The place was incredibly clean throughout. Prices can be high - but it is a theatre.

Had a lovely time enjoying Kinky Boots - the theater’s stage design, sound & lighting was fabulous. Seats were very comfortable - a great place to spend an evening enjoying wonderful theater! Don’t miss it!

I love this theatre and have been to a number of shows. Good sound quality and comfortable seats. Snacks and drinks are pricey as is standard for these kinds of venues.

Have seen many shows here. Usually get tickets for the balcony which is great but steep. Atmosphere is great. Staff are friendly and toilets clean!

I LOVE the theatre & the Mayflower is one of my favourites due to the decor. It's local for me & I'd go all the time if I could afford iy

Absolutely other worth going to see , maybe I've been spoilt by les mis, and billy elliot , but this was dull , with no higlights , the one star was for the young actors voice ,

This has closed after war horse. Cannot wait to see what they are going to do with it. The place has a huge history so hope the changes will be sensitive.

I think it depends on the show and day you see the show. Fridays and weekends are more expensive. So tricky to give an exact answer. X
