I went to see The Mousetrap at St Martins. The play was brilliant and I did not guess the identity of the murderer! The theatre is really old and lovely. It feels as it would have felt in the 50's when the play was first performed though it did not come to St Martins until 1974. The whole place felt... More

Very nice place, oldy but a great feeling when you see the wooden decoration; seats are better than on most low cost flights; a quite smart bar; no luxury but you can get champagne; nice staff; I saw Agatha Christie's mouse trap and was delighted because it took me out of my ordinary business matters; in addition you are close...

I was here last week and watch the infamous "Mousetrap". We sat at the top in the upper circle. This was quite scary. If you don't like heights, do no sit there. You feel like you could fall forward into the long drop! The space for your feet was restricted and i ended up kicking the female in front whenever... More

We went to see the longest running play "Mousetrap" and it is conveniently located for nearby restaurants.

We visited here a few nights ago. I was quite tired and was afraid I might fall asleep but it is a fantastic show with lots of humour and intrigue thrown in. Would recommend it to everyone. the theatre itself has beautiful wood panelling and still retains the old seats. Even though our seats were at the back of the... More

Based in London it is too easy to take London for granted. So every so often I think about what I would do if I was a doing London in just a couple of days and then go do it. Seeing the Mousetrap is one of those things. Its been on stage longer than I have been alive. The Theatre... More

This is an old theatre but not elaborately decorated. It does have some nice wood features, though. Seats are comfortable but with not a lot of leg room. The theatre's main claim to fame is that it's the venue for Agatha Christie's play The Mousetrap which is the longest running play in the world. Over fifty five years. Amazing. Tickets... More

Booked tickets on line and got the delivered by post in no time. Had a drink in the lovely theatre bar before the play. The theatre is smaller but so charming and cozy. The Mousetrap is a longest running play filling the Guinness records in every aspect. Performance and acting were superb and the cast was amazing.

It was an amazing West End experience. I loved it as am a huge fan of Agatha Christie. The actors were great and very funny at times. I loved it!
