Access/ How to Get There
The Leicester Square Theatre is found in Leicester Square and as a result it is near to a number of well known London attractions, in addition to various other theatres in the area. Shaftesbury Avenue is just north of the area and with that other West End venues such as the Apollo Theatre, the Queen’s Theatre, the Gielgud Theatre and the Palace Theatre, with the Prince of Wales Theatre also nearby and the Noel Coward. The venue is also near to the Odeon West End, which was converted from what was the old Leicester Square Theatre. The usual amenities one would expect to find in a city centre such as London can also be found in the area.
For those arriving at the Leicester Square Theatre by the London Underground, the nearest tube station takes the form of Leicester Square, though Piccadilly Circus is also relatively nearby, as is Charing Cross. For those arriving by train, the nearest railway station takes the form of Charing Cross as well.
For those arriving at the venue by road, there are various bus routes in the area that will bring audiences to, or near to, the venue easily. Meanwhile, car users will find car parks such as an NCPs on Bedford Street and Upper St Martin’s Lane. There is also a council-run car park located at Cambridge Circus.
In terms of disabled access, the Leicester Square Theatre contains a wheelchair stair climber that can help visitors gain access to the auditorium (however, it cannot help with scooters). The theatre’s website advises that guests who have such requirements – or any other additional requirements – should make contact in advance so that arrangements can be made. The basement theatre has a narrow staircase leading to it and as a result is not wheelchair accessible. Unfortunately there is currently no disabled toilet.
