The area

Neighbourhood: Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.

    Absolutely brilliant venue. Cant wait to go back. A Hidden gem.
    My wife and I went for the first time last night and somehow this superb place has slipped by us. Its is a gorgeous venue and you can just feel the history. The staff are just so helpful and friendly and the downstairs bar is really nice with a decent range of beers and wines, all reasonably priced. They even have choices on the cask beers. We went for the Cockney singalong which was just so much fun. My wife is Canadian and didn't know the older songs in the first act, but all the words are up on a big screen so everyone can sing along. But they did some newer songs in the second act too. Its only 7 minutes walk from Tower Gateway etc and i really cant recommend this place enough. BTW it's not cold at all!! and tickets are really reasonably priced.

    Absoflippinglutely Fantastic!
    Would rate this a ten if possible. We saw “I Wish My Life Were Like a Musical”. It was funny, well written, catchy tunes and beautifully sung and acted by the cast of 4 + pianist. Outstanding. One of the best things I’ve ever seen on stage. If this is the quality of a “music hall”, how on earth will the West End top it? Atmospheric venue, and historic, too. A great evening out. Will definitely be back next visit to London! Can’t recommend enough!

    My favourite place in London
    I have been going to Wilton's for many years, watching it rise from a wreck to an increasingly comfortable and atmospheric venue. Every performance I have seen across the genres has been outstanding, pre-theatre food and drinks enjoyable, and ambience second to none. So impressive that I have left a donation in my will!

    Wow wow wow !!!
    We attended a performance of 'The Merchant of Venice 1939' at Wiltons Music Hall and were blown away by the production. Tracy-Ann Oberman and cast provided a performance that was thought-provoking and inspirational. It left me feeling emotional and put things in the current world into context. This is a must see play that has everything to entertain and inform.

Went to see Potted Panto which was amazing. Venue is awesome but beware not to order food or drinks. Staff incredibly slow and food came out 51 mins later just as show was starting. Staff refused to allow food in theatre and management refused to provide refund. Clearly sold too many meals they couldn’t provide before show started and staff weren’t prepared to rectify. Really disappointing experience

What a lovely old historical theatre . I'm so glad I visited here to watch black and white films accompanied by a pianist. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff very friendly.
Highly recommend.

This was my third visit to this charming and atmospheric venue (this time, to see a production of The Mikado by Sasha Regan's all male group - excellent!). The theatre is to be found in a quiet pedestrian side alley in an area of 1970s housing; use your satnav or google maps! It is a leisurely 15 min walk on the flat from Thames Gateway station/bus stop. The theatre has super friendly staff, and excellent bars at ground level and upstairs. And particularly wonderful, they put out jugs of ice water and disposable cups for people to help themselves to on hot days! So thoughtful! We sat in the front row of the circle just in the corner, which gave a great view of the stage but unfortunately we couldnt see the piano, which was under one of the side extensions of the gallery. I look forward to my next visit!

Have visited here many times and have always been impressed both by the performances and the helpfulness of their staff. However, following the matinee performance of Sasha Regan's Mikado(5 stars for the performance) I have to mark Wilton's down for the disgraceful crush in row A of the stalls. The seats were far to close together and the proximity of the stage made it a frighteningly claustrophobic experience. The box office staff were very helpful and managed to re locate us in the balcony. If the stage remains in its current location, Wilton's need to take out row A completely.

We went to see Camille O'Sullivan at Wilton's which as usual was a fantastic show. This was our first time at Wilton's and we found the Music Hall a really interesting venue. We would definitely visit more often if it was nearer to us but at 1.5 hours on train it needs to b e a special event.
We had a goose sausage roll and a guest ale each and thought the pricing reasonable for London (Unlike the Fortune Theatre who charged £8.20 for a beer the previous week!!).
The seats were very comfortable (especially compared to the Union Chapel's wooden pews where we normally see Camille perform) and the temperature in the Hall was just about right.
The Hall itself is "Shabby chic" in that it has been left in its original condition but that is part of its charm.
We would strongly recommend a visit if there is a performance / event that you want to see being performed
