Victoria London Theatres accessibility 2021

There are two definite major theatres in Victoria, both are close to Victoria station, and well served by bus routes. The number 24 is a good choice, travelling from Pimlico to Hampstead Heath, it travels via Victoria, Westminster, Charing Cross, Leicester square, etc. As you can see, there are 3800+ seats at these two theatres […]

Queens Theatre, Billet lane, Hornchurch RM11

The Queens Theatre in Hornchurch was an old building in Station road when I first moved to Hornchurch. A couple of years later, a brand new theatre was planned and built between North street and Billet lane Hornchurch. Moving on, I worked in the bar in about 1979 for a brief period. There were some […]

Accessible Drury lane theatres in 2021

In addition to Drury lane, I add Russell street and Catherine street to this grouping. It is a shame about London Transport options which tend to require a bus to avoid the many inaccessible stations, or a taxi! The bus stops are continually being closed for roadworks without offering a reasonable alternative, which is ridiculous. […]

Haymarket & Piccadilly circus theatres 2021

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 […]
