About London Palladium

The London Palladium has hosted more Royal Variety Performances than any other theatre and is arguably amongst the most famous theatres in the country. With a capacity of 2,286, it is one of the larger performance spaces in the city and it continues to attract large audiences for spectacular West End shows such as Cats, Opeth and The Wizard of Oz.


Built in 1910, the Palladium doesn't have the extensive history of many other theatres in London, though it has more than made up for this with its popularity, penchant for scheduling excellent shows and big name appeal. In the past, musical superstars such as Ella Fitzgerald, Cliff Richard and Nat King Cole have all taken to its stage and the Palladium is now well known for its recent run of musicals under the stewardship of Andrew Lloyd Webber.

A good show but steep access.

by Alex Brooks

My partner and I enjoyed a good show at the Palladium but there are quite a few steps to tackle and the seating is steep.


Helpful staff!


The staff here are great! Some of the bars can be difficult to access, but there is a wheelchair accessible bar.
