    Woolf work is the best. It's a great art work. But don't recommend sandwich collection and coffee in the bar during the intermission. Nope!

    Must-visit for any trip to London. Come to the box office at 10am on the day of a (sold-out) performance to try to score one of the 67 same-day tix. Savour the beauty with a drink on the terrace

    The premier opera house of this country. Big name singers tend to make tickets rather scarce. But do try, many reasonably priced tickets.

    Mariinsky's Swan Lake was wonderful. If you want to avoid the interval crowds and queues (and can afford some extra expense) book a table in advance at one of the Opera restaurants - it was worth it!

    Beautiful building and the productions vary depending on Director and Stage Manager. Worth visiting the Terrace Balcony where you can have a Bird's Eye View of Covent Garden and London Landscape

    They don't have plastic cups to pour leftover interval drinks into. So if you've ordered a large glass of wine for the interval and haven't finished it, you'll need to neck it back #tootighttotoss

    In 1837 The Royal Opera house was the first ever theatre to use limelight. Limelight comes from the mixing of oxygen and hydrogen and then adding real burning lime to achieve a bright light.
