Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very modern theatre with easy access for the disabled and wheelchairs. Low counters for smaller persons. The restaurant named the Green room served very nice freshly cooked foods at a reasonable price. I did find that the legroom between seats a little tight which can be annoying when people come in and out as your having to constantly stand up so be aware when booking your seats.

  • Very good regional theatre with a mix of big shows (we saw War Horse) and some smaller performances. Pleasantly located in a quiet corner of Canterbury's beautiful city centre, next to the river. Parking available a few 100m away, and excellent public transport links.

  • Very good theatre in the heart of Canterbury. West End shows performed as well as operas and musicals. Lots of restaurants and bars in the vicinity. Good to stay locally and enjoy Canterbury if you're travelling to the area as Canterbury is well worth a visit.

  • Took the kids to see Dinosaur World. They loved it. Reasonably priced, though would have been nice if it was a little lower. Didn't buy food at the venue as those prices were very high! Also had some trouble acquiring a booster seat for our youngest before the show started - so some let-downs, but overall, an enjoyable day out.

  • A nice building, fantastic view from the top floor. The theatre is a good one with an active program and a lot of famous plays being set up.
