Ambassadors Theatre

West St, London, WC2H 9ND

The Basics

Book in advance to secure your seats, as the Ambassadors can fill up quickly. You can easily combine your visit with an exploration of nearby Leicester Square, Covent Garden, or Seven Dials, where shops, cafés, and restaurants provide plenty to do before or after a show. Or, stroll among several landmark theaters and learn about the area’s history and architecture on a tour of London’s West End, aka Theatreland.

How to Get There

The Ambassadors Theatre is about a 5-minute walk from Covent Garden and Leicester Square stations. Several local buses—including numbers 14, 29, and 176—serve Charing Cross Road. Q-Park Chinatown provides a 50 percent parking discount to theatergoers with a box-office-validated ticket, though it’s best to avoid driving in London—especially on weekdays when the Congestion Charge applies.

When to Get There

Unlike many of its sister theaters, the Ambassadors typically stages limited runs and short-term transfers, in order to extend some of Britain’s best theater to West End audiences before it’s gone for good. If something catches your eye, book quickly, as it may not stay for long.
