Theatre Royal Drury Lane Tours

The large, Greek-inspired Theatre Royal Drury Lane is the oldest theater site in London that is still in use. Having opened in 1663, it is considered to be one of the most important theaters in the world – architecturally and historically speaking. No other theater in Britain has a longer history of continuous use. More than three centuries old, the Theatre Royal Drury Lane is also said to be one of the most haunted buildings in all of London – no small feat for a city that claims its fair share of spooky old buildings ( a skeleton with a knife in its chest was found in a hidden room in the 1870s)! The interior of the theater is ornately decorated with plush red-velvet seats for a truly traditional theatergoing experience. The current building was completed in 1812, and has the distinction of having been paid a visit by every monarch on the throne since then. Productions at the theater fill the house regularly, with hits like ‘Oklahoma,’ ‘My Fair Lady,’ and ‘Oliver’ seeing runs of hundreds of performances. Visitors can see a show and also take a professional guided tour through a tour company.

Practical Info

Shows being performed at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane (commonly known just as ‘Drury Lane’) change frequently. The building faces Catherine Street and backs onto Drury Lane. The disabled entrance is on Russell Street. There are four spaces for wheelchairs, L1 and 35, K1 and 35, with seating for companions in the same row.
