Access/ How to Get There
The Old Vic Theatre is located on the corner of the Cut and Waterloo Road, which puts it on the other side of the River Thames to other London theatres such as the Dominion Theatre or Her Majesty’s Theatre. But there are still other venues nearby such as the Young Vic Theatre, which also presents various well known shows to great success. This side of the Thames is also home to off-West End theatres such as the Menier Chocolate Factory on Southwark Street to the East.
The venue is easily accessible via public transport. As such for those arriving by the London Underground system the Old Vic is located just down the road from Southwark Tube Station, with Lambeth North a little further to the south and Waterloo Tube Station also nearby. The latter is also the location of the nearest railway station for those arriving by train.
For those using the road to arrive at the Old Vic, there are various bus services that operate in the area, whilst the nearest car parks take the forms of an NCP on Coin Street, plus a single bay for blue badge holders on nearby Webber Street. Taxis are also easily accessible at the nearby Waterloo Train Station.
In terms of disabled access the venue has a ramp that takes patrons from street level and into the foyer, with a wheelchair seat at N5 (and N6 available for a companion). Wheelchairs can then be stored in the nearby adapted toilet, which is located on the left on the inside of the side entrance. Patrons should notify staff members of their needs in advance of visiting.
For visitors that need sound amplification, there is a Sennnheiser infra-red system in place, with a £5 deposit required for collection of a unit to access this (either in-ear or loop units). Guide dogs are allowed inside the auditorium, or staff can look after them. In both instances, visitors should once again inform staff in advance of their visit to clarify their needs.
