I have been to the Palladium many times but never submitted a review. Went to see Alfie Boe and Michael Ball there recently and has forgotten what a lovely venue this is.

Attended a show recently at this venue and was sat at the Upper Circle. Awful, absolutely awful. If you are anything more than an inch taller than 5 feet (1.5m), you will struggle. The lack of leg space is disgusting. If you are an adult, you will spend your entire time there counting down the minutes to when you can... More

This was a fab show last night! Cast are amazing, play instruments, play, dance and so amusing- we loved it! Great songs and interpreted so well- we had great seats so you can see the animation on the casts faces and they were so very good! Loved the films and now loved the feel and sound of this show- made... More

Friday night at the London Palladium to experience Coldplay with 2000 ticket winners from Absolute radio. What an amazing intimate concert in this legendary London theatre. Great staff at the bar, friendly, funny and fast serving. Being so close to such a great band was something special, the sound and visuals were great, a truly fantastic night.

We were here for Alfie Boe and Michael Ball in their new 'Together' show. The theatre is amazing and a showpiece in its own right, even before the performance begins. It was an amazing evening, and the only thing that marred it was the price of the drinks, and the fact that you could not pay for merchandise using a... More

Wow! Wow! And Wow! Coldplay are a fantastic live band and performers. I'm not a huge Coldplay fan but if you go to see any and live, Coldplay should be up there. The performance was amazing. And it was so great to see this band in such an intimate venue. I think the theatre seats about 2300 people so in... More

I've been to the Palladium loads of times, it's right next to Oxford Street tube station and has hosted loads of fantastic musicals and concerts. It is an old theatre with wonderful acoustics. This time we had seats in the front row of the upper circle. A few things bugged me about that - firstly you are directed to a... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
