Leicester Square Theatre is a listed building, and has been adapted to allow for greater accessibility.

Accessibility Information

Leicester Square Theatre is a listed building, located in the basement of the Notre Dame de France church on Leicester Place. From the main entrance, there are 14 steps down to the main foyer and then a further six steps down to the auditorium itself, which is all on one level.


The building has been adapted where possible to allow for greater accessibility, but
we do not have a lift at the main entrance. However, we do have a separate entrance that offers a more direct route into the main auditorium and is equipped with a platform lift (please be aware the lift has a weight limit of 300kg). To use this entrance, we advise arriving 30 minutes before the performance begins in order to ensure there is sufficient time to get to your seats.


Within the auditorium, we recommend booking into one of the front row seats in the right side stalls section if you are transferring to a theatre seat; the box office team can advise which are the best available seats. Side Stalls Right 20 can be removed from the auditorium if you prefer to remain in your wheelchair.


An accessible toilet and two bars are located within the auditorium.


The Lounge Bar is not accessible by wheelchair.


If you have any questions, please contact us.

An accessible toilet is located within the auditorium.

We offer one complimentary companion ticket with every access booking subject to availability. These are not available via our website, but can be booked either in person at our box office or by calling us on 020 7734 2222.

We allow assistance dogs in the venue. A member of our team will be happy to care for your assistance dog during the show or they are welcome in the auditorium. Please call us on 020 7734 2222 to arrange.

Unfortunately, we do not currently have a working induction loop, but this is something that is being looked into.

A relaxed performance is a modified show specifically for children or adults who have additional needs such as autism, sensory communication disorders or learning difficulties and would benefit from watching in a more relaxed environment. Please contact the box office for more information or to book tickets. These shows cannot be booked online.
