I visited Haymerket today, the 12th October 2021, looking for those elusive theatres I had missed on previous London visits recently. To get to Haymarket, I travelled to Charing Cross Railway station, then walked via Trafalgar square, staying on the northern edge and past the massive National Gallery, then along Pall mall east, and into the Haymerket. This leads up towards Piccadilly circus.

There are two theatres immediately opposite each other, in a very wide, and quiet Haymarket. It was very pleasant for the centre of London.

The Theatre Royal is currently showing “Only Fools and Horses”, whilst Her Majesty’s Theatre is advertising “The Phantom of the Opera”.

Theatre Royal, Haymarket – Only Fools and Horses

The box office in the Theatre Royal was highly motivated towards explanations of accessibility to the show, explaining that there was level access to the stalls area, and to disabled toilets, although clearly not via the front entrance which has steps. The show also received a very high rating.
