More about the Playhouse Theatre
A short step away from the main strip of West End theatres, the Playhouse's stylish curved facade is rather lost among the towering architecture of Charing Cross and Embankment. If the exterior is a little too restrained however, the same cannot be said for the auditorium, which is a sumptuous tribute to theatrical excess. A cream colour scheme is obscured by giant murals, statues and a mountain of gold inlay. The boxes are supported by caryatids, the house lights are on three-meter golden pillars, while the carved balustrades twist and turn like snakes. Sadly none of this glorious excess was ever seen by the bulk of the audience for the Playhouse Theatre's most famous shows. Hancock's Half Hour and and The Goon Show were both recorded here, along with a host of other BBC Radio shows. Since the BBC left in 1975, the Playhouse has struggled to establish itself as a major West End venue. Hits, like the Almeida's Naked starring Juliet Binoche and the National Theatre's An Inspector Calls have been matched by an equal number of flops and the theatre has changed hands many times. The transfer of the Menier's 2008 hit La Cage aux Folles did wonders for its reputation and it's currently home to the hugely popular Monty Python comedy Spamalot.

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your tremendously patient help over the last few months. We had a really successful conference, and all the reports I heard of the hotel and the whole experience were really positive. I do hope we weren’t too much trouble, especially with all the constant changes of numbers etc! Do just let me know if there’s still any follow-up to be done, but otherwise thanks again for your great work

In the midst of the peak tourist season, LondonTown within 24 hours managed to find me three alternatives for a group business booking in central London, all at great rates. It would have taken me days to do this on my own, even if I’d known all the hotels to approach. Great time and money saving, thanks LondonTown!
