Have visited Hippodrome many times since it re opened. The building is beautiful, seating comfortable. People often dont realise that a lot of the productions are national tours, pre or post London West End runs. We are going every week for next month. The staff...More

This establishment has been referbished to a high standard, having to use a walking aid I found it easy to gain access to the facilities. The toilets were immaculate and the whole place was clean, fresh and spacious

Newly refurbished with added modern stylish touch, the old theatre looks very elegant and feel very spacious at the entrance and the lounge. Feel good inside as well and you would definitely enjoy a evening show no matter it was a music or comedy.
Visited this newly refurbished venue to see a fabulous show, lovely to see that many of the original features have been kept but also new modern additions have been added. A stunning venue for all to enjoy.
