You have the choice of two seating options for the performance inside the New London Theatre. Standard priced seats offer a good view of the stage and are usually located in the rear stalls (stage level) or dress (upper) circle. Alternatively, opt for top priced seating to enjoy a full view of the stage and close-up views of the stars on stage. The performance lasts two hours and forty minutes and includes an interval break.
Make the most of this memorable evening and enjoy a 2-course pre-show dinner at Jamie’s Italian. The restaurant is situated close to the theater and serves a variety of dishes made with good quality ingredients.

Prepare yourself for two hours of unexpected, fully immersive and highly improvised comedy at Faulty Towers The Dining Experience in London’s West End. Set in a specially devised Torquay Suite Theatre at the 4-star Amba Hotel Charing Cross, this unique show pays homage to the popular British sitcom ‘Fawlty Towers.’ Check in to the theater, be shown to your seat by Basil, Sybil and Manuel, then try not to laugh yourself silly as they serve a 1970s-inspired 3-course lunch or dinner. Expect shocking service, hilarious improvisations and sidesplitting theatrical scenes throughout this interactive and rip-roaringly fun dining experience that has won international acclaim. Please note that as of May 1, the venue will be changed to the Kingsway Hall Hotel in Covent Garden.
Make your own way to the Torquay Suite Theatre at the Amba Hotel Charing Cross to begin your unique show and dining experience. Set in the grand 4-star splendor of this Victorian city hotel, this once-in-a-lifetime dining experience is an affectionate homage to the hit 1970s British sitcom Fawlty Towers, written by John Cleese and Connie Booth.
After ‘checking in,’ perhaps head to Basil’s bar to enjoy a pre-dinner drink (own expense) as you wait for the fun to start. Chuckle in amusement as you watch the hotel proprietor, Basil Faulty, rush around greeting guests, and hear Sybil’s shrill cries of “BAS-IL!” bouncing off of the walls while Manuel tries to serve the nuts.
Take your seat as Basil frantically ushers everyone to their places at one of the shared tables, and prepare to laugh yourself silly during what is likely to be one of the most comical lunch or dinner experiences you have ever had.
With only a third of the show scripted, no two dining experiences are ever the same. And with Basil, Sybil and Manuel acting as the waiting staff, expect everything but ‘good’ service. In true Fawlty Towers form, everything that can go wrong, will go wrong — hilariously so.
During the 2-hour experience, dine on a 1970s-inspired 3-course meal consisting of dishes such as spiced carrot and fennel soup, and chicken with tarragon mash and vegetables. Before and during the meal, watch as Basil, Sybil and Manuel wander between tables, mingling with diners and loosely recreating some classic, not to mention hysterical, scenes from the TV show.
With a full stomach and a smile spread across your face, your experience concludes when you ‘check out’ of the Torquay Suite Theatre.
Please note: as of May 1, the venue will be changed to the Kingsway Hall Hotel in Covent Garden.
