Getting into the Venue

The Palace Theatre main entrance is 2 steps up from street level and leads directly into the foyer. An alternative entrance is available through double doors on Shaftesbury Avenue that lead to the Box office. This entrance also leads to the Stalls, where accessible seats are available. To access the Stalls, there are 3 steps down to the seating, as well as a slight incline that leads to wheelchair accessible spaces. There is a drop-off point close to the Palace Theatre main entrance.

All sections of the theatre must be accessed by stairs, as there is no customer lift. There is seating available in the bars.

An at-seat service is available for access patrons who are unable to access the bars. Staff must be notified if this is needed.

Transfers are available into any aisle seat. Those who wish to transfer must bring a companion, but staff are available to assist. Wheelchairs can be stored for the duration of the performance.
