About Her Majesty's Theatre

Built in 1897, Her Majesty's Theatre is located on Haymarket in the West End and has specialised in musicals since its conception. As the home of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera since 1986, the Theatre has extended its musical origins into the modern era and continues to enjoy a great deal of success in a competitive industry.


Its history has been dominated by an incredible number of impressive names, including George Bernard Shaw, Nöel Coward and J. B. Priestley, and a variety of performances have entered the record books as the longest running shows of the time. Interestingly, the theatre's name changes depending on the sex of the monarch and it was last known as His Majesty's Theatre between 1901 and 1952, when a number of male monarchs sat on the throne.

The theatre does a really good job of looking after wheelchair users, they help you get to your seats and will even help you get a drink.
