The guided tour is excellent and great value. What a fab-u-lous place! Informative guide and a most interesting visit. Highly recommend. Some narrow stairs to negotiate. However there is a lift to the different levels.

A unique and intimate way to experience performing arts in a wonderfully preserved Georgian theatre. Whether it's music, comedy or Shakespeare it's a real delight.

We had an amazing tour around the theatre. Dave our tour guide was really welcoming and informative. A fascinating experience which really was a highlight of our trip. Well worth the £5, and nice to know the money is going to support this theatre.

Visited as a family with children aged 13 and 6. All were engaged throughout the full 1 hour tour. The guide answered all questions put to her, and provided lots of detail as we looked around. Great value for money...an hour well spent.

If you have any interest at all in theatre history, this is MUST! We ended up as two people who could have been lost in a large group that the guide was not expecting; it would have been so easy for us to have "swamped"...More
