    Beautiful theatre. Easy to book tickets, easy to get in, easy to get out, and lots of room for your legs. Enjoy the show! Oh and there is a bar inside too.

    A dance house that's willing to take risks! Before every trip back I check the listings to see if there's something worth checking out. Nine times out of ten there is!

    If you enjoy Sadler's Wells and the Peacock Theatre, and come here - or would like to come here! - relatively often, join the Friend's program... excellent value :-)

    Great value pre-theatre menu at Niche next door to Sadler's Wells - your main course served within 30 minutes of its free guarantee!

    Tickets in c2 section - although high are still really good. Beautiful venue - swing by exmouth market for nice pre-theatre menus

    Don't be put off by 2nd circle seats. Still a fantastic view and if booked in advance, so much cheaper!

    1804 aqua-drama ‘The Siege of Gibraltar’ featured 117 cannon-firing ships designed by Woolwich Dockyard in a 3ft deep, 90ft long tank filled with water from the nearby wells. Find your maritime story. Read more

    As newbies to dance we were extremely disappointed to find the swans in Matthew Bournes Swan Lake were all male - they therefore lacked the elegance we associated with the swans. Also NOT ballet

    Order your interval drink at the Shakespeare's Head at the back. Less crowded, not as hot and packed.
