Glyndebourne Opera House

Glyndebourne Opera House Review

Nestled beneath the Downs, this world-famous opera house combines first-class productions, a state-of-the-art auditorium, and a beautiful setting. Seats are very expensive (the cheapest are around £50) and you have to book months in advance, but it's worth every penny to aficionados, who traditionally wear evening dress and bring a hamper to picnic in the gardens. The main season runs from mid-May to the end of August. If you can't afford a seat, standing room costs about £10. The Glyndebourne Touring Company performs here in October, when seats are cheaper.
