Fantastic show. DD8 and DS6 were totally mesmerised. Great venue. Highly recommend both the show and the theatre. Ticket prices were just right too. Can't wait to go back. 5 mins walk from London Bridge train station.

Lovely little theatre, we enjoyed the Iron Man show - different but enjoyable. Note - you are not allowed drinks or food in the theatre but it's not too bad as the show was only 50 minutes long. Seating is not great - we were in the last row and seats were like high benches. But this was just about... More

Went here with my son we both throughly enjoyed the act. Very up close and personal. We got here early so decided to get something to eat- good choice of sandwiches and very reasonably priced. The staff were very helpful and well mannered. Would consider going again.

Excellent balletic actors in this children's production. We visited for Christmas with our grandchildren of 21/2 and 41/2. Well expressed by actors/dancers. We thought the production could have been a little more polished as far as the lighting and special effects go. Disappointed that there was no development with the stockings. Our little ones couldn't understand that it wasn't Christmas... More

This was a fantastic show - so clever and entertaining. The 4 actors were so incredibly versatile. It represents a fantastic theatrical experience for children.

The Unicorn Theatre is known for creating theatre especially for children; unfortunately their blurbs and marketing material can be totally misleading. What seemed to be a show about dance and movement performed by 13 Belgium girls aged 13 turned out to be a disturbing performance about pedophilia, abortion, condoms, and pregnancy. The Unicorn failed to say that this show was... More

Absolutely loved this show. The lady who meeted and greeted us was fab. We arrived early and she was very informative and polite. I keep meaning to pop back for the Up club with my son. I felt it was very well organised and was pleased as punch when we were seated first! My son loved the show so much... More

Saw the opening performance of Septimus Bean and his Amazing Machine today. A truely amazing production. My kids (aged 4 and 8) rated it "the best thing ever" and want to go again. But then so do I. Hilarious and engaging - a childrens theatre event not to be missed. And the ending - wow!! Runs until 26 June.

Visited here for the production with my child and a school friend aged 10 -11. On arrival, the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The place was easily accessible, a lift and easy seating if needed. We really enjoyed the visit, the production that we saw was excellent, very vibrant and engaging, it was the right length for younger... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
