    Was wanting to see this show considering it the world's longest running show I thought it must be good, however I left a little disappointed. I feel time is running out for the show, although the acting is very good, the plot is very simple (I guess correctly who the murderer was during the break). The show is very dated. However this is probably the cheapest show in the West End to see, however personally I say it's best giving this show a miss as there are better shows out there to see.
    Seat offers excellent views of the stage. There is a bar going across the front which was not a issue. However as you can see in the photo, there is a large bar in the middle, although this was in sight (blocking the view of the very front of the stage), luckily nothing happened in this area so this was not a problem. However legroom is quite tight (luckily this seat is at the end of the row so you were able to stick your legs out a bit). Seat was very uncomfortable with the seat being half the size of a normal seat (it was like sitting in a babies high chair) and I left the theatre with 2 very sore and red marks on my behind. Seating level is very poor also (luckily the guy who was sat in front of me was fairly small so I was able to see over the top of him). Although views were brilliant, I would suggest other seats due to the in-comfort of the seat and may offer a better view.

    Lovely theatre, comfy seats and brilliant show! Went with my daughter and totally enjoyed the story, especially the ending.
    Excellent view with a comfy seat and enough leg room for me (5'6").

    'The Mousetrap' is the longest running show in London and is certainly an enjoyable show. Based on the tradition of the show, I can't reveal the twists and turns of the show but is an enjoyable evening. The only issue I had was that at times the pace felt a little slow, but was still enjoyable - with more comedic moments than I expected.
    This seat is the front row of the dress circle centre, great view in the theatre. The seats, like the show, are old fashioned and traditional and are a little bit harder than what I've experienced in refurbished theatres.

    Absolutely loved The Mousetrap and was pleasantly surprised by how funny it was. A real institution in that is has been running for 60 years now and at this specific theatre since the early 70's. Fantastic acting. The set was great. A must see!
    Sat in Stalls G12
    Wonderful seats with a perfect view. More legroom than you could ever need! Easy access to bar and toilets. The theatre is stunning.

THE MOUSETRAP SEATING PLAN
The simple set up and staging mean there’s not much advantage to being able to take in the whole stage. Buying tickets in the central Stalls or Circle can give you best view of the actor’s expressions and feel involved in the action, however cheaper tickets can be found nearer the back and towards the ends of rows, that can offer good value for money.

STORY
Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is a West End institution, having been performed continuously in the West End since 1952 it has earned the title of the world’s longest running show.

Young couple Mollie and Giles Ralston have set up a country guest house at their home, Monkswell Manner, and are expecting their first guests when it is announced that there has been a grizzly murder nearby. The guests and their hosts become snowed in but a detective is sent on skis to investigate as Monkswell is suspected to be the site of the killer’s next murder. With all the characters behaving shiftily there is no shortage of suspects in this, the ultimate whodunnit, as after all, who is setting up a mouse trap?

Christie is said to have drawn on the real life case of a boy Dennis O’Neil, who died in the care of foster parents, in Shropshire as inspiration for the play’s storyline. The play began life as a radio play called Three Blind Mice, with the name later being changed to The Mousetrap.

Agatha Christie is possibly the world’s most famous crime writer, having written over 60 murder mysteries and created the iconic characters of Poirot and Miss Marple.

As you’d expect from a show that’s been running so long it can feel like a bit of a blast from the past however regular cast changes ensure the material is kept fresh. Part of the joy of a trip to see The Mousetrap is feeling like you’re becoming part of history as each night a wooden sign displays what number performance this is for this record breaking show (and makes the perfect back drop for a photo op!) and of course there is the famous twist which, in traditional style, the cast ask you to keep secret at the end.

The Mousetrap is one of London's top theatre tickets, and is a must see for any theatre-lover.
SUITABLE FOR
Fans of Agatha Christie will want to complete their appreciation of her work by taking a trip to see this, her only stage play. If you’re after a quintessentially British experience or a taste of times gone by then this is the show for you. Don't miss out the opportunity to buy great The Mousetrap tickets now.
