Description:

Touring over 20 countries a year and with a permanent London West End...

Touring over 20 countries a year and with a permanent London West End residency too, this critically acclaimed show has been winning five-star reviews and standing ovations since 1997. It's 'a two-hour eat, drink and laugh sensation!' (Daily Telegraph). The fun starts as the audience wait to be seated and then hurtles along as they become diners in that infamous hotel. Meanwhile, Basil, Sybil and Manuel aspire to be their warring waiters, serving a 3-course meal with a good dollop of mayhem. This is fully immersive, highly improvised, site-specific comedy theatre at its best - and because only a third of show is scripted, performances are always fresh. Expect all the best gags and 'a rip-roaringly hilarious night out' (This Is London). Just don't mention the war! - 'Outstanding! (Fringe Review) - 'Uniquely enjoyable... A worthy alternative to some of the West End's other shows... It will have you raving' (Britain Magazine) - 'Deliciously entertaining from start to finish, this is not to be missed.' (What's on London) - 'Fantastic!' (What's on Stage)

the dining experience on tour...I saw it in Salford. When i say saw it, you are part of it. The actors also served the meal and generally got you involved Keep a low profile if you dont want Basil to pick on you! good fun, good laugh for all ages especially if you have an idea on the original sketches

Although the acting was good, the meal was very average and the drinks overpriced. Ones enjoyment largely depends on those sharing the tables and that is pot luck.

Great fun, we never knew what would happen next. Manuel was so believable as Manuel. Basil's funny walk had us in stitches.

My husband received this as a birthday present so we were not sure what to expect. It was hilarious from the start and so well done ...the characters were so like the original and acted out the scenes so well. We felt we were actually in the dining room of fawlty towers. I would recommend as a fun day out.

My family have been fans of Fawlty Towers for many years. We had the VHS tape set, and then the CD set, and we still watch episodes when we just want to laugh. My daughter and granddaughter and I were planning a long weekend trip to London when we came across information on this event. We were not disappointed. The... More

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
