One of the newest theatres to London, this is going to become a real jewel in the creative crown. Situated about 10 mins from London Bridge Station, beside city hall, this theatre boasts a stalls area and 3 galleries. It is quite compact, so most seats offer fantastic views. I sat in the stalls and the seats are the best I've ever had in a theatre, really comfy with fantastic legroom, such a nice experience. The staff are friendly, there is a large bar area, and lots of toilets. Do support this theatre if you get the chance!
I, so far, have been to every production put on at the Bridge Theatre. It is always a great experience with reasonably priced ticket, great food and brilliant productions. One point of particular note is the programmes which a well priced and not stuffed full of ads, but rather great content which adds to the value of the production. I can't wait to come again!
