City boys and girls are treated to a slice of the arts in the mini Bridewell Theatre, nestled tidily between Fleet Street and Blackfriars. Aptly (given its local audience) Bridewell's strength lies in lunchtime theatre, its Lunchbox events teaming a 45-minute play with sandwiches and snack – punters can even bring their own to eat during the performance. Bridewell hosts evening theatre too and, as with lunchtimes, productions veer between classics and new works.

A great little fringe theatre not far from the west end with all sorts of unusual and rarely staged musicals and plays. It's also a fascinating space, formerly a Victorian swimming pool! You can still see the viewing balcony.


A lovely little fringe theatre hosting everything from classics to productions from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, perfect to see some established, and very new, theatre companies putting on their newest work. Built on what was a swimming pool, the theatre itself has a charming character and a great bar downstairs!
