Critics Reviews

“At the end of this week, the world’s longest-running show will complete its 65th year in the West End. It is salutary to reflect that when it opened, Winston Churchill was prime minister and there was still rationing.”
- Evening Standard UK

“It has passed into the realm of great British institutions, as much a highlight of the tourist trail as the Tower Of London or Madame Tussauds.”
- Sunday Express

Performance was excellent! I saw the play 24 years ago, and it was brilliant then too! Seating space was small but that comes with an old theatre. Loved the atmosphere and the photos on the wall in the foyer. All staff were really friendly. 10/10!

The show was memorable because I love Agatha Christie books and have read all of them so I was so excited to see the play "Mousetrap.... My sister and I each picked out the murderer before the play began and I guessed the correct murderer! The plot was excellent along with the characters and the acting was fantastic!!!!!

The show itself was fun and we did get to see it because the venue found us other seats. They told us that Headout changed the tickets themselves but did not change it with them. When first making the reservation, I hit the wrong 2:30 time button but made a call to you to change it to 7:30 immediately. You got back to me saying that the venue allowed me to do that because I was quick to correct. I received a text from you with a reminder of the show at the wrong 2:30 time. I called to make sure that the tickets had been changed to the 7:30 time and was told that they had been and everything was fine for that later time. Something fell through the cracks.
