Access/ How to Get There
The Arts Theatre is located on Great Newport Street and whilst it is not a West End Theatre, it is located near to many of the famous venues that make up Theatreland. These include St Martin’s Theatre, the Cambridge Theatre, the Ambassador’s Theatre and the Palace Theatre, in addition to those found on nearby Shaftesbury Avenue. As it is in a central London location, patrons attending shows at the Arts Theatre can expect to find the usual amenities that are common in large city-centres.
For those arriving by the London Underground, the Arts Theatre is located closest to Covent Garden and Leicester Square Tube Stations. Likewise, for those arriving by the railway service, the nearest train station takes the form of Charing Cross.
Public transport is always advised as the best way to access central London locations, due to the difficulty in parking and with the tube and railway links close by this is particularly useful. However, patrons can also access the venue by the various bus services that operate in the area, whilst the nearby car parks include an at Upper St Martin's Lane, a City Council Car Park in China Town and metered parking in the streets near the venue, should they be required.
In terms of disabled access the Arts Theatre has exit doors to the side of the main entrance, which lead to the auditorium. Wheelchair users can use the single space to the rear of the Circle or use transfer seating for two wheelchair users/ one scooter user in an aisle seat. Visitors requiring these should contact the venue in advance. There are also toilets for disabled patrons inside the building (including a large cubicle and facilities to the rear of the circle).
Unfortunately there is no sound amplification system currently in place for those hard-of-hearing guests. However, for those that are visually impaired, two guide dogs max are permitted inside the auditorium, or staff can look after them (contact in advance).
