About Gielgud Theatre

The Gielgud was built in 1906.  It has had several names over the years, but was renamed in honour of the actor John Gielgud in 1994.  The beautiful building has been recently restored, and many visitors are impressed by the gold leaf in the auditorium and the circular Regency staircase.  The theatre had its first big hit not long after opening, with Brewster’s Millions in 1907.  Other successes followed with Call It A Day (1935), The Importance of Being Earnest (1939) and Equus (2007).  These days, it hosts a mixture of plays and musicals. 

The Gielgud has 3 licensed bars and a seating capacity of 973 over 3 levels.  The building is air conditioned.  It also has a Sennheiser infra-red hearing aid system; the best reception is in the front areas of the auditorium.  Disabled access to the building is through the third EXIT door on Rupert Street.  There is a 12 cm step up to the Dress Circle, where there are 2 wheelchair spaces.  An adapted toilet can be found in the foyer near the bar.

The closest tube station is at Piccadilly Circus (250m).  There are 2 blue badge parking spaces in Archer Street.  Council car parks can be found at Poland Street and China Town, or NCP’s at Wardour Street, Newport Place, Denman Street or Lexington Street.
