Being at the front left us almost right on the stage, but thankfully not having to look upwards too much.

Went to see Matilda The Musical here. Whilst the show wasn't as good as I had hoped the theatre itself was very nice.
Great central location with plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. We had the cheap seats near the back but still had a great view and also the seats were very comfortable with plenty of leg room compared to a lot of other London theatres we have been to.
Matilda isn't really that great though especially if you're a big fan of the film! Unlike some other great shows it's not one I would watch again.

The theatre that houses Matilda,,, what an incredible show!! Fun, funny and musically brilliant! Would defo recommend to anyone!! Word of warning, watch out for he lasers

As for the theatre, very nice decor and interior along with a modern outlook on theatre. The seats are relatively comfy with a decent amount of leg room.
