    Been on my bucket list to go and today I finally went. Bigger than I thought, sat in the upper gallery in front row and had perfect view. Stairs are a bit of a climb .. all amenities on lower floor (I didn't use them personally today) so do everything before going up!! Great performance, rain held off too, which I was extremely pleased about, but you would be part covered (depending on which way wind is blowing!!!), we didn't buy cushions, seating was a little tight, but I'm mot sure cushions entirely needed, so an amazing experience for me today... would definitely go again.

    Beautiful and historic theatre. The employees are very friendly and helpful. We went to see Hansel and Gretel and stood for £5. Unfortunately it started to rain during the second act so we got a bit wet. The acting was excellent and it was an interesting retelling of a classic story.

    Fabulous! Booked to see Hansel and Gretal. Not what we expected, a more alternative production, but very funny! It was our first time going there(I have always wanted to go to see a production there), so it's very worthwhile. We were lucky to see two television actresses, but all the actors were truly good, and we thoroughly enjoyed the production. Remember, during the colder months, this is an outside theatre. Take a light blanket and wrap up warm!!! You can rent cushions to sit on for £3, but be aware it is wooden seating. The theatre itself is a real work of art! You can walk in on the day and pay for cheap tickets, but you will be standing during the whole production. They sometimes use the standing area to move around sets. Very fun, but just be aware. Nice outside cafe, good hot drinks and there is also a restaurant/cafe indoors in the new building to sit down and eat. Great little shop, but it's expensive, a tourist hotspot . There are a few bits of costume/props from different productions on display (They could really set up a larger permanent costume display, I think it would be interesting. My little one loved the few bits that they had displayed! He found it very interesting). All in all, a good afternoon out. Lovely views of the Thames and St. Paul's. Loads of places to eat out and Borough Market on the doorstep, what's not to love!
