Royal Opera House - Review
The Royal Opera House of London was inaugurated in 1732 and is popular ever since for commendable performances by world famous stars and professionals. The opera house features ballet performances and opera that would enchant music lovers especially. There is food served in the house as well. Although offering minimal variety, the kitchen here doesn’t compromise on taste.
The comely ambience and atmosphere at the house make for lovely hours to while away while losing yourself to the spellbound talent featured in the flawless performances here. Also, visit nearby attractions in the city which are covered in London itinerary 5 days.

Royal Opera House, London Reviews
It's one of the most famous and prestigious Opera venues in the world, and for a good reason. The concert hall is not to big but that makes it cosy. It still preserves the decoration from the days where it was a fashionable place to go and I love the wall sconces hanging from the walls. The acoustics are really good and I've attended some memorable performances there. One of my favourite opera houses.
It has to be 5 Stars for the building and the productions but the recent refurbishments leave something to be desired. The women's' facilities are in the basement , accessed either by a long staircase or two lifts, one of which is rarely working. To be fair, when you get there, there are lots of cubicles no queues, which is more than can be said for most London theatres The Opera House's vision of getting "ordinary people" into the building is not going to be fulfilled if the best they can do is a very small, bitter, lukewarm cup of coffee served in a plastic tumbler for £3 and plates of sandwiches at £12. Shockingly bad.
Beautifully refurbished Royal Opera House, now open to public with a beautiful cafe and more public spaces in the lobby. The refurbishments are beautifully done. Especially love the natural light that streams into Paul Hamlyn Hall. Even if you're not watching a performance, come in to look at the place!
Grandeur, opulence, beauty! What better environment to enjoy the ballet or opera! One cannot but marvel at the exterior and interior of this building which I find spectacular. The service from staff is very good, faultless in fact. The productions are varied and magnificent.
A great venue to watch ballet/opera. Three location within the city is perfect, within easy walking distance of several tube stations, bus stops, and easy access by taxi. Good entrance and exit to the building means that you nearly never get stuck waiting on a queue/crowd. The seats are adequate for comfort, not the most comfortable seats for a long show, but with intermissions they aren't terrible. (Ticket pricing is very good, with a broad selection of inexpensive tickets available for people that plan ahead). Absolutely beautiful venue inside, with several very nice places to have a drink or something to eat. Definitely worth arriving early to enjoy unwinding a little before the show. Overall this is one of my favourite venues to watch ballet.
