Absolutely mesmerizing! Had an amazing view in a box on Grand Tier, No. 15. Would definitely recommend booking that spot or there about. I’d say Grand Tier, 10-28 would be fabulous views. Book seats 1-4 for best front seat view over balcony. Each box has...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

If you ever have a question like this - just Google. The show runs for 2 hours and 10 minutes so add this onto whatever show you're seeing - matinee or evening performance. Hope this helps!
