We visited The Swan last night to see King John and rarely have I enjoyed the theatre so much. We were sat in Gallery 1 in seats B22 and B23 and have the most magnificent views. It's true the seats are a little uncomfortable but for the view it's definitely worth it and you have the option to stand and lean against the rail in front of you. Personally I wouldn't have wanted to sit any higher up as I noticed a lot of people leaning and shuffling in their seats and on the ground floor a few people seemed to be struggling to see the entire stage. The production was fabulous but what really made it was the location. The theatre almost takes you a step back in time and is very intimate. The staff were friendly and polite at all times and couldn't have done more to make our visit special. The bar is comfortable and the prices are as you would expect for a theatre, a little higher than pub prices but not overly extortionate. I highly recommend a trip to The Swan when you're in the vicinity!
