Sadler's Wells accessibility

Getting into the Venue

The Sadler’s Wells main entrance is situated on Rosebery Avenue and is accessible for wheelchair users. There is step-free access into the foyer via a large automatic glass sliding door. Once inside the foyer, the Box Office is straight ahead with a lowered, accessible counter. A drop-off point is available outside the theatre.

All sections of the theatre can be accessed via customer lifts which are to the right of the main foyer. Every level of the theatre is fitted with fully adapted facilities.

Customer Assistance

Staff are on hand to assist with navigation throughout the theatre. Sadler’s Wells is fully adapted, so patrons are free to use facilities unaided.

Transfers are available and it is recommended that those wishing to transfer bring a companion. Wheelchairs can be stored for the duration of the performance. An at-seat service is available for those who are unable to access the bars.

How to Book

For those who request special assistance or wish to book wheelchair spaces, it is important to book in advance and notify the theatre of any special requirements. The Sadler’s Wells Access Scheme is available for access patrons and entitles patrons to a significant ticket discount as well as reduced booking rate.
