St Martin’s is one of the few London theatres that are still privately owned – this one by the Right Honourable Lord Willoughby de Broke. It was built by his grandfather in 1913. For its first 50 years, the theatre mainly showed drama, including plays by John Galsworthy and Noel Coward. Since 1974 it has been the home of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. It’s had great success with this classic whodunit, which is now the longest running show of any kind anywhere in the world.
The theatre has a capacity of 530 over 3 levels. The tiers are well-spaced and the only restricted views are from the end 4 seats of rows A and B in the Dress Circle. The venue has 3 licensed bars and is air conditioned.
There is one space for a wheelchair user in the Dress Circle and another in Box C at the same level. An adapted toilet is outside this Box. The auditorium has an infra-red sound system for the hard of hearing.
The theatre is about 4 minutes’ walk from Leicester Square tube station. Car drivers can find a space at the Westminster City Council car park at Cambridge Circus of the NCP at Upper St Martin’s Lane and Bedfordbury.
