The Grade II-listed theater has a capacity of just over 1,000 seats, so purchasing show tickets in advance is recommended. Standard and premium seating is available to suit different budgets. If you want the experience of a night out in the West End, you can opt for a package that also includes dinner, whereas time-pressed travelers or families with kids can book a matinee performance. Backstage tours can be booked independently.

Both Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square underground stations are within a 5-minute walk of the theater, while Charing Cross railway station is about 10 minutes away on foot.

When to Get There
There’s nothing like a winter night in the West End to get you in the festive spirit—you can unwind as you watch the show in a snug auditorium, then stretch your legs along nearby Regent Street to see London’s Christmas lights in all their glitzy glory.
W.G.R. Sprague’s West End
Both the Queen’s Theatre and its neighboring twin, the Gielgud Theatre, were designed by Edwardian architect W.G.R. Sprague. In fact, several West End staples are the work of this Australian native, including the Noël Coward Theatre, Aldwych Theatre, and St. Martin's Theatre. Of these, only St. Martin's Theatre has remained a traditional drama venue, hosting the world’s longest-running play, Agatha Christie’sThe Mousetrap, since 1974.
