List of West End Theatres

We are going to start a new series where we post information about theatres in the West End.

"Theatreland", London's main theatre district, contains approximately 40 venues and is located in the heart of London's West End. The area is surrounded by Regent Street to the west, Kingsway to the east, Oxford Street to the north and The Strand to the south. Drury Lane, Shaftesbury Avenue, and The Strand have multiple theatres on them. London also has many smaller theatres, both around the West End and its periphery.

Many West End theatres are of late Victorian or Edwardian construction and are privately owned. Some of them feature neo-classical, Romanesque, or Victorian façades and luxurious, detailed interior decorations. However, leg room is often limited, and facilities such as bars and toilets are often small. The protected status of the theatres and their tight urban locations render it impossible to make substantial modernisation on the buildings.
