We arrived 15 minutes after the show started, but could easily pick up the tickets at the door and an attendant led us to our seats while explaining the story so far. Really nice venue. A bit chaotic when getting a drink during the break, but the bartenders where surprisingly good at serving people in order. However, as we knew... More

The best musical I've ever seen! The first song & dance put a smile on my face and it remained there for the whole duration of the show. So good, so professional acting / singing / dancing / playing, just perfect. We were sitting on the second row in the circle. I was positively surprised that it is that close... More

My friends and I went to see The Book of Mormon (which was AMAZING) at The Prince of Wales Theatre. Great super central location so it was easy for us to grab food and drinks before and after and a really lovely Theatre inside. We had a great time and would definitely return for more shows!

Visited theatre yesterday and was delighted with the help 'Millie' gave me as a disabled visitor. She not only assisted me to my seat but returned at interval to ensure I was ok. I hadn't advised theatre in advance of my disability so thank you Millie/staff for being observant and coming to my rescue.

This theatre is nice. The venue is a bit smaller than what i thought it would be for Book of Mormon but is still beautiful. We got tickets in the Grand Circle which had a great view.

We got tickets to the Book of Mormon and were not disappointed. I do not think there is bad view. We were lucky, get seats in the stalls in row K. The sound is GREAT, the theater is GREAT and Book of Mormon is the best play we have seen this year.

The seats are comfortable there is decent amount of leg room between your seat and the seat in front. Efficient air conditioning which is necessary for the amount of people seated. The seats are set up well around the stage and there is good sound acoustics. The bar is brilliant, friendly bar tenders. Bathrooms were clean and tidy. A good... More

We took the In-Laws to see this with our 13 year old Son (yes..I can hear your gasps!). He loved it too before you ask! We are very open minded and to be honest I'm sure hes heard most if not all the profanities used! There was one bit that was a bit close to the edge....but it wasn't dragged... More

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
