I I have nothing but praise for this theatre, but How to Get There? Where are the signs on entry to the City?? None. Infuriating, frustrating, trying to drive and look for signs is dangerous. Dark, unable to right turn when directed by a pedestrian. We have never been late for the theatre and allowed 2 hours for a 40... More

This a go see show. This is a really great show. I personally am not a musical fan, I usually find them cheesy. But this is lively, with amazing singing and music. It's fun. The whole crowd were up and dancing by the end. In fact the whole balcony was shaking by the Jerry Lee Lewis final encore. We came... More

First half of show quite short(45min) also I felt talk about story line was a little boring at times and interfered with the music, quietly pleased when the interval arrived. Part 2 so much better and about another 15 min longer, much more music this time and songs preformed right through. Musicians were excellent and had us all on our... More

We love the theatre the atmosphere the plays/musicals/ ballets etc are always so amazing!- however my only criticism is that it's always so very expensive to go to the Mayflower!- we have done many a trip to the West end in London and more often than not it's actually cheaper to travel and go to theatres up there than it...

We travel a 120 mile round trip to see "west end" shows at the Mayflower and have only been disappointed once (Breakfast at Tiffany's). Wind in the Willows is two hours of wonderful tomfoolery, obviously not to everyone's taste as the four people next to us did not return after the interval. The costumes and inventive scenery are 'minimalistic' but... More

I've been to The Mayflower many times and have always had an enjoyable experience. Leg room is a little lacking and there aren't enough toilets but the theatre itself is wonderfully ornate. The bar is reasonably priced and the staff work very hard. On a recent visit the staff had our opened bottle of prosecco ready and waiting for us... More
