Apollo Victoria Theatre accessibility

Getting into the Venue

The Apollo Victoria main entrance is located on Wilton Road, directly opposite Victoria station. There are 4 steps up from street level to the main foyer. An alternative access entrance is via the Vauxhall Bridge Road entrance. A wheelchair lift provides level access to the foyer facilities and an accessible toilet. The lift also gives access to the Circle. There is a maximum weight limit of 200kg, with dimensions of 29”x33”.

The Stalls and Circle seating must be accessed by stairs, which have handrails in place throughout the theatre. There is no customer lift.

Customer Assistance

If requested, the Apollo Victoria provides a dedicated Access Host upon arrival, who will assist customers throughout their visit.

Customers must notify a member of staff on arrival in order to use the wheelchair accessible entrance. It is recommended that customers wishing to use wheelchair facilities should arrive 45 minutes before the performance begins.

There is an in-house wheelchair that can be reserved when booking, which staff will make available. Those wishing to transfer to fixed seating must arrange this at the time of booking. Transfer seats are available in the Circle. Staff are not able to assist with transfers, but are able to store wheelchairs for the duration of the performance. An at-seat service is available for patrons who are unable to access the bar.

How to Book

Those who require specific access facilities or seating requirements must book in advance through the Apollo Victoria Box Office. It is important to contact the theatre prior to your visit in order to notify staff and check availability as wheelchair spaces are in high demand. Access patrons are able to purchase seats for £35 each, for both the patron and a companion. Premium seats are not included.
