The grande dame of London theatre has been open since 1663
The Theatre Royal Drury Lane is the grande dame of London theatres. Its site has been in constant use as a playhouse since the 1600s and despite various incarnations (usually necessitated by a fire burning down the previous one), its purpose hasn't changed much since. The Theatre Royal Drury Lane is a people’s theatre that stages blockbuster musicals for the masses, with Sam Mendes's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' the most recent long-term occupant to follow in the likes of 'My Fair Lady' and 'Miss Saigon.
Prior to 'Charlie's opening, the venue was given a lavish restoration job and probably now looks as good as it ever has – something you can ascertain for yourself with the hour-long 'Through the Stage Door' tour, which takes place six days a week. As Theatre Royal Drury Lane is a working theatre, the content may vary. Comfortable clothing and footwear is recommended as there are stairs on this walking tour.
