Harold Pinter Theatre accessibility

Getting into the Venue

There is level access to the Harold Pinter Theatre main entrance, which is situated on Panton Street. This leads directly to the theatre foyer and Box Office. There is a drop-off point located outside the theatre.

An alternative entrance is available to the left of the main entrance, through a side exit on Oxenden Street and over a temporary ramp. There is level access from the foyer to the Dress Circle, making it accessible for wheelchair users. All other sections must be reached by stairs, as there is no customer lift.

Customer Assistance

The closest available adapted toilet is located in the Strada restaurant across the street. Front of House staff are on hand to help with navigation or to accompany patrons to and from the restaurant.

Transfers are available at the rear of the Dress Circle. Those wishing to transfer from wheelchairs to fixed seating must bring a companion. Staff are able to store up to 4 wheelchairs per performance.

How to Book

For those who require special assistance or wish to book wheelchair spaces, it is important to book in advance and notify the theatre. It is recommended that those who wish to book wheelchair spaces provide their chair measurements at the time of booking. Discounted tickets are available for access patrons and one companion, with the price depending on the show.
