A royal night out in Bath at the Georgian Royal Theatre

Bath, Somerset

A sophisticated night out in Bath invariably includes pre- theatre dinner, then trip to the Georgian Theatre Royal for a first-class West End show.

Built in 1805, the Georgian Theatre Royal Bath is one of the oldest theatres in England was beautifully refurbished in 2010. The Main House offers a year-round programme of top-quality drama, including many West End productions, opera, comedy, dance and frequent Sunday concerts. 

The Georgian Theatre Royal’s history is certainly a colourful one. Abandoned for decades and rediscovered in the 1960’s, it is almost a fairy-tale in itself. A pinnacle of English theatre architecture, it makes for a charming space in which to watch fantastic shows. 

Grab a drink in one of the bars whilst you wait for a show, or head to the rear of the stage to explore the exhibition space to the rear of the stage where you can see Britain's oldest set of scenery known as 'The Woodland Scene'.
