About Savoy Theatre

Located on the Strand and in the heart of London's West End, The Savoy was originally home to some of Gilbert & Sullivan's famous comic operas. As the first public building in the world to use electricity, it has always been at the forefront of the city's vibrant theatre and music scenes and has become one of the most renowned theatres in the world.


It has hosted the premières of Oscar Wilde's Salome, Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit and Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado, and in recent years has continued to expand its repertoire to opera, Shakespeare and newer musicals. The theatre has a capacity of 1,158 and enjoys a busy and successful schedule.

Avoid the main entrance!

by James Edwards

If you have a mobility disability I would recommend avoiding the main entrance, there are so many stairs!


Went to the savoy after reading this guide

I'm hard of hearing and always on the lookout for opportunities to go out and do something different. After reading the guide, I decided to check out the Savoy and had a great evening. Thanks Limitless.
