a cozy and old-school theatre

I saw the "Mouse trap" in this remarkable, cozy and really old-school theatre. Few of them are left in London. Both, show and theatre were worthwhile.

Cosy theatre, well performed play, enjoyable and easy to follow. Perfect for my teenage daughter who doesn't enjoy excessive noise or movement on stage.

We visited St Martins theatre this evening to see Agatha Christies very long running show 'The Mousetrap'. This was a Christmas gift for my mum as she is a big fan and enjoys a murder mystery. The theatre is very old English and a small intimate place. We booked wheelchair friendly seats which were comfy and spacious. The staff at... More

Received The Mousetrap tickets for Christmas gift and was not disappointed. The St Martins theatre has history and tradition in abundance, which greatly compliments this fantastic show. A show that has been running for a very long time and it's easy to see why! Yes the seats may be not comfortable enough for those who are probably used to modern... More

Being a fan of Agatha Christie for half of my life, seeing The Mousetrap has been on my bucket list for a long time, and I finally had a chance to visit St Martin's Theatre last week, in the 64th year since it first started. Although I was familiar with the play itself, I was not sure what to expect... More

My husband and two adult children went to see the Mousetrap yesterday. The venue is so suited to the show. It is quant and takes you back in time. It is beautifully preserved and in fantastic condition. We had excellent seats in the stalls in row M. The show was superb and the actors were just great with the right... More

I went to see The Mousetrap at St Martins. The play was brilliant and I did not guess the identity of the murderer! The theatre is really old and lovely. It feels as it would have felt in the 50's when the play was first performed though it did not come to St Martins until 1974. The whole place felt... More

Very nice place, oldy but a great feeling when you see the wooden decoration; seats are better than on most low cost flights; a quite smart bar; no luxury but you can get champagne; nice staff; I saw Agatha Christie's mouse trap and was delighted because it took me out of my ordinary business matters; in addition you are close...

I was here last week and watch the infamous "Mousetrap". We sat at the top in the upper circle. This was quite scary. If you don't like heights, do no sit there. You feel like you could fall forward into the long drop! The space for your feet was restricted and i ended up kicking the female in front whenever... 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.
