Been here a couple of times. Well worth the visit, so much to see of this Royal Playhouse. Wouldn't mind one myself! Make sure your have the audio tour to make the most of it.

If you want to see one of the best chandeliers ever then go, it really is magnificent. Don’t get more than one audio guide as they can be turned up to quite a decent volume.

Booked on line, got there early and had the place pretty much to ourselves. It is so ornate and definitely the product of a different way of thinking. The guides that we spoke to had so much information and brought the place to life, pointing...More

Hi, You could walk around this in under an hour or you could spend lots of time in each room so it depends if you want to listen to the recorded tour and examine each painting and artefact or just shuffle though... I’d say... More
