My wife and I were in London celebrating our wedding anniversary and decided to book tickets to see Charlie and the Chocolate factory at the Theatre Royal. The theater's location is very easy to get to whether you're staying in a soho hotel or catching the tube. Our seats were located in the upper balcony that is accessed by a separate outside entrance from the main theater, and might I suggest hiring a sherpa and taking a canteen of water for the hike up these stairs. I wouldn't consider myself unfit by any means, but I was more than happy to make the turn and see the last flight of stairs at the top. If you're taking along children be sure to ask for booster seats, otherwise they'll struggle to see anything at all really with the stadium style layout. The seat cushions themselves were worn and could do with a refit to be honest. Enjoy the performance, not the venue.
