We don't always take in a show in London but this time we decided to. Our final choice was Wicked which is playing at the Victoria Apollo theatre, one of London's largest, seating over 2000 bums. Tickets were purchased online via Ticketmaster where we could pick our seats.

The best thing about the Victoria Apollo theatre is it's location, right across from Victoria train and bus station. A large number of busses go to Victoria bus station. Three tube lines cross there and it's a major rail station as well. The theatre is on the corner of Wilton road and the large square in front of Victoria station. You can't miss it.

There doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the stalls, no posts to impede the view no matter where you sit. I can't speak for the balcony. There are two bars and two sets of toilets. The ones near the theatre seating are better, at least for the Ladies' as there are quite a few stalls so the queues move quickly. The theatre lobby, for this production, is bathed in green light, in keeping with the Green theme of the play (Oz - emerald city!)

There are lots of places to eat in the vicinity though they will likely be pretty busy.
