Access/ How to Get There
The Prince Edward Theatre is located on Old Compton Street and whilst it is the only West End venue found on this road, it is in close proximity to a wealth of other venues. Shaftesbury Avenue is nearby and, as a result, theatres such as the Queen’s, the Palace, the Gielgud, the Apollo and the Lyric Theatre. Its central location also places it near to the usual amenities one might expect to find in a large city centre.
For those arriving by the London Underground, the nearest tube station takes the form of Leicester Square. However, Tottenham Court Road is also relatively near, as well as Covent Garden. For those arriving by train, the nearest railway station is Charing Cross.
For those using the road to arrive at the Prince Edward Theatre, there are a number of bus services that operate in the area, in addition to numerous car parks in close proximity. There are NCP car parks found on Denman Street, Wardour Street, Newport Place and Brewer Street, whilst China Town and Poland Streets’s City Council Car Parks are also in the area. There are also parking meters for those wishing to park on Greek Street.
In terms of disabled access, the Prince Edward Theatre has access to spaces and transfer seats within the auditorium. There are also disabled toilets, which visitors can access but will have to exit on Greek Street and re-enter on Old Compton Street. The auditorium spaces for wheelchair users can be found in Box 1, whilst transfer spaces are on Row A.
Those who are hard-of-hearing will be able to get hold of a headset (forty available) to use the Seinnheiser system that the venue has in place, with a £5 (returnable) deposit required. Meanwhile, two guide dogs are permitted access to the auditorium per show (staff can also dog-sit if this is arranged in advance).
