Theatre Royal, Haymarket
Theatre Royal Haymarket
Theatre Royal’s unmistakable facade, with its huge pillars and white and gold paintwork, stands halfway up the Haymarket.
- LEON – “One of the best theatre I have been too, and I have been to quite a few. First of all, it looks great from the outside with those egyptian gold columns, and inside it is nice and ornate as well, so it really feels like you are going for a night out. There is nothing worse than walking into a theatre only to find that is like an office building. You need that ornate stuff for a bit of atmosphere. It's not the biggest of theatres inside, but that is okay. I was sitting down below about 6 rows back. I wouldn't fancy sitting much closer than that, but 6 rows was perfect. They even had the little tubs of ice creams at the interval. A night at the theatre wouldn't be the same for me without a little tub of ice cream and a wooden spoon!.”
If you enjoy this then try: Adelphi Theatre (you can walk it in 7 mins); Aldwych Theatre (walk it in 14 mins or catch a train from Piccadilly Circus to Aldwych Theatre); Menier Chocolate Factory (catch the tube from Piccadilly Circus to Menier Chocolate Factory); Noël Coward Theatre (you can walk it in 6 mins) and Phoenix Theatre (you can walk it in 7 mins).
