About the London Palladium

The London Palladium first opened in 1910 and is one of London’s most famous performance venues. The theatre boasts beautiful period architecture and was refurbished to make it entirely accessible for all audience members.

Owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber's LW Theatres, the London Palladium sees a variety of musicals and one-off concerts performed on its vast stage, with Lloyd Webber's smash-hit musical Cats regularly returning. Notable productions have included Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music and The Wizard of Oz.

Split across three large seating sections, the theatre offers excellent views due to the wide stage and steep rakes. There are no pillars or restrictive bars, and the overhang from upper tiers is limited.
