Access/ How to Get There
The Duchess Theatre is located on Catherine Street and this is a road that leads from the famous Aldwych, on which other theatres such as the Novello Theatre and the Aldwych Theatre can be found. This also brings it within close proximity to venues such as the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the Fortune Theatre, the Lyceum Theatre and the Savoy Theatre on the nearby Strand. To the north-west, on Bow Street, the Royal Opera House can also be found, whilst the usual amenities can also be accessed in the local area.
For those arriving by London Underground, the Duchess Theatre is served by Covent Garden to the north-west. However, other tube stations that are relatively close include Embankment and Holborn. For railway users, the nearest train station takes the form of Charing Cross.
Public transport also serves the venue through the bus service, for which a number of services operate in the area. Likewise, other road users such as drivers can utilise car parking facilities such as the NCP on Drury Lane, with a taxi rank to be found on the end of Russell Street. Where possible, public transport is advisable ahead of attempting to find parking in central London.
In terms of disabled access, the auditorium is accessed by stairs throughout, with a stair-climber available for those in wheelchairs that require access (please contact the venue in advance of your visit so arrangements can be made). Spaces are then found at N1 and N29 in the auditorium, with transfer seats available on aisle seats in the Dress Circle (again, staff can help with this). In the stalls area there is an adapted toilet for disabled use.
For those that are hard-of-hearing there is a Sennheiser system in place with 6 headsets available for the performance (front 3 rows in the stalls do not receive very good signal). Meanwhile, guide dogs are allowed inside the auditorium provided aisle seats are utilised. Staff can also look after the god in the manager’s office with two dogs max during a performance.
