Made a last minute decision to visit this theatre and we're so glad we did. The painted ceiling is fabulous and after a not too strenuous climb up to the cupola we enjoyed the stunning views over Oxford. Lots of information on the building upstairs. All in all, a fabulous visit.

Excellent value for money (£3 approx). The theatre itself is lovely with a beautiful painted ceiling, but for me the highlight of the visit was the spectacular view over Oxford from the cupola; definitely worth the climb.

Lovely theatre (though I wasn't there for a performance) with lovely architecture and painted ceiing. And affordable entrance fee (£3.50/£2.50). Not too difficult a climb to the top - interesting historical display boards in the attic, where you can also see the sturdy timbers of the roof construction. Terrific views from the cupola all round. Good to combine with a visit to the Bodleian and/or the Weston libraries.
