Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

La Fille Mal Gardée

This is a great venue which also has another side to it. Companies hire the upper terrace to host private parties. The terrace overlooks Covent Garden and there is lots of space to include a live ensemble as background music. My steel drum band ensemble covered a company event here and the staff were great, the service was good and everything just had a really nice feel about it. I recommend this venue.

The Royal Opera House is a very special building. There is such a special atmosphere around the whole building and the performances staged are world class. You can't really go wrong here.
