Its hard not to be impressed by the Palladium and it doesn't disappoint in terms of history, however, the seats are very uncomfortable and were obviously designed for very small people back in the day, It could do with a facelift and re-design. Delighted it now has air conditioning though. The concert was absolutely brilliant as you come to expect... More

We booked tickets to see Paul Carrack and as part of the package we were shown to the hall of fame where we were seated in comfortable seats and served a bottle of Tattinger Champagne .. wow! The gorgeous usher who looked after us was amazing taking down to our seats and collecting us again at the interval (so sorry... More

I saw Loreena McKennitt here and was originally worried about the size of the theatre, since she was appearing with only two other musicians and a cozier venue would have been more suitable. However, the acoustics were great and I very much enjoyed the performance. The theatre really needs a no-tolerance policy on people taking flash photographs during performances, though.... More

I took my wife to see Loreena McKennitt in concert at the London Palladium. This was our first visit to the Palladium and it certainly is a very impressive venue. We were in the stalls and had a very good view of the stage from row Q.

The upper circle seats should come with a health warning. If you are of average height the leg room is tiny and is so uncomfortable it distracts from what you are watching. We stood at the back rather than sit any longer in those horrific seats.

We went to the Palladium yesterday to watch The Godfather with a 60 piece orchestra, which was absolutely stunning. We sat in the stalls at the very end of row G and the view was fine. Wonderful acoustics, as you'd expect. My seat was more comfortable than many London theatres I've been in, and the staff were polite and helpful.... More

Went to see the godfather with live orchestra. Very good sound , but screen could be bigger especially if you sat in upper circle and seats are uncomfortable.

Finally got to see a marvellous show at the Palladium and got to go inside. Such history and memories of Sunday Night at The London Palladium. Great to see in the flesh.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
