Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a highly interactive experience, where groups enjoy a 3-course meal and 5-star comedy. Not only that, but GTOs say it’s brilliant.

The family-friendly West End show is for everyone, from die-hard fans of Fawlty Towers to those completely new to the characters. 

A loving tribute to the BBC’s classic TV series, the show has been seen by over a million people worldwide and has appeared in 43 countries to date.

In 2023 the West End’s longest running immersive dining experience won the coveted Group Leisure & Travel Award for the Best Group Dining Experience.

During his acceptance speech, Basil Faulty said: “Wow. What can you say when they hand you a GLT? I’m going to say ‘about time!’ I am a humble man, but I always knew that my hard work, brains and indomitable British spirit would pay off in the end.”

What groups can expect from the experience

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a loving tribute to Fawlty Towers, the classic BBC TV series written by John Cleese and Connie Booth. Using its own original scripts and format, groups become diners in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant where pretty much anything can happen – because 70% of the show is improvised.

The fun starts as guests wait to be seated. It then hurtles along in a 2-hour tour de force of gags and shambolic service as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a ‘70s-style 3-course meal together with a good dollop of mayhem. Groups are warned to ‘expect the unexpected!’

This family friendly West End show is fun for everyone - from die-hard fans of Fawlty Towers, to those totally new to the characters - chaos reigns supreme almost as soon as you walk through the door of London’s President Hotel, in the heart of the capital’s Theatreland, which doubles as the famous hotel in the show.
