This is an excellent space for new, innovative work. We saw 'The Woods' with Lesley Sharp playing the main role. I would definitely see more new work here. It is an intimate area where you feel connected with the action. The seating, although fairly basic...More

Given that Row L is the penultimate row in the stalls I had a brilliant view of the whole stage, apart from the very top of the stage due to the Circle overhang, and great audibility. The seats were particularly comfortable and capacious and were...More

Great venue but 2 observations please. One is the seats are a little cramped and the numbers are hard to find on the chairs. Secobdly- a tiny thing but it was disappointing- we ordered soft drinks at the bar. They were poured from the post...More

The Royal Court Theatre is a "writer's theatre" showcasing new work. It's a very comfortable theatre. Be sure to book for dinner ahead of your show. The food and service in the restaurant/bar is excellent. Great celeriac and apple soup and a very tasty pork...More

Close to Sloane Square tube, local parking, a focus on new talent, a bar and eating make this a wonderful London resource. A modest auditorium means you will be close but leg room can be lacking. I went to a preview of Girls and Boys...More

Went to a matinee performance of Rita, Sue and Bob too. It wasn’t totally sold out but was pretty packed nevertheless. Staff were pleasant and helpful at the Box Office, in the theatre and in the Bar afterwards. The loos are clean and plentiful. Always...More

I love the Royal Court, and always relish the opportunity to have a drink in the bar before the performance. If you want to have something to eat, then I can recommend the soup, but book a table if you want something more leisurely. The...More

We went to an evening production of Goats just before the Christmas break started . The play was well worth seeing - if focused rather narrowly on one theme only. The lead actor was excellent and well supported by a good cast . The goats...More

You still proclaim yourselves “the writer’s theatre.” So shame on you Royal Court for cancelling Rita Sue and Bob Too! You have censored the work of a woman who wrote honestly, provocatively about her world. Are you seriously saying, as a theatre with a history...More

The Royal Court is famous for its experimental theatre and giving new and upcoming writers a chance to showcase their work. I went to a matinee performance of one such production. The auditorium is small and intimate by London theatre standards, although spread over three...More

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw
