Really enjoyed my visit here to see 'Tanguera' . Easy to get to, friendly helpful staff and great views and sound (although even being at the front in the 1st circle, I felt quite a distance from the action). A really good modern theatre.

We have visited many London theatres but I thought Sadler's Wells was excellent, good seating, views and acoustics, nice bar area, good selection of ice cream! We were in a hotel near the British Museum and a pleasant 25 minute walk away. Would recommend seeing...More

The Theatre is a good venue. Decent seating and facilities generally. Loads of shows that we've consistently enjoyed; plenty of variety.

In general, I like Sadler's Wells. Nice theatre, nice shows and friendly staff. Recently I saw the Scottish Ballet. Big dissapointment and waste of money. The show was creepy, like in a lunatic hospital. Horrible music. Only the second part after the interval was a...More

We travelled especially to see Akram Khan's, Desh (fantastic!). We loved the venue which was easy to find and very comfortable seats with enough leg room for us as tall people. Overall a great place to watch performances.

Although I must say The leg room is not great at the higher levels in this theatre buildingit was still a great evening.

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky

I have to say the best seats we have found are in the Upper Circle row B or C. The view is excellent, especially from the middle seats, and the prices less - so you can go more often.

We made the mistake of booking tickets at the sides and didn't realise that you had to be over 16 to use them as the seats are bar stools on the 1st or 2nd tier. We only realised when we got there but was able to change... More
