Ambassadors Theatre Tours

Ambassadors Theatre
As one of London’s smallest theaters, the Ambassadors is known for its cozy auditorium and classic Sprague design. The Grade II–listed venue hosted the world’s longest-running production, The Mousetrap, for more than 20 years. Today, the theater features West End transfers and musicals, as well as limited runs.

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.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The theater isn’t wheelchair-accessible; patrons able to transfer to seats must store their wheelchairs in the foyer.
  • Headsets for hearing-impaired guests must be booked in advance.
  • There are no disability-adapted toilets on-site.
  • Availability in the cloakroom is limited; large luggage can’t be accommodated.

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.

The West End’s Smallest Theaters
If intimate auditoriums and immersive theatrical experiences entice you, consider visiting some of the Ambassadors Theatre’s neighbors as well. Check out the 432-seat Fortune Theatre, where the long-running Woman in Black is sure to raise hairs, and the 350-seat Arts Theatre, an independent venue known for its modern and avant-garde productions.
