Her Majesty’s Theatre is located on Haymarket, near the corner with Pall Mall, not far from Trafalgar Square. The nearest tube station is Piccadilly Circus (Bakerloo and Piccadilly lines), approximately a 5-minute walk away. For National Rail, Charing Cross is only 7-minute walk away.
The site of the theatre has a dramatic history dating back to 1705. While the theatre has undergone several major refurbishments, the French renaissance style has been kept intact in this stunning Grade II listed building. The lavish architecture and décor make every visit to Her Majesty’s Theatre feel like an event.
Throughout the Twentieth Century, the theatre became renown for hosting major musicals, including West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof and Bugsy Malone.
