Venue Access Information
Trafalgar Theatre is accessible for wheelchair users.
The main entrance to the theatre is on Whitehall. The Foyer, Foyer Bar and Box Office are on street level. The pavement in front of the entrance of the venue is raised by 2 steps. You can find a flat pavement on Spring Gardens, the street parallel to Whitehall behind the theatre.
Enter the foyer step free, take the lift to the lower level, then enter the auditorium via rear Stalls Entrance A or B, depending on your seat location. The Stalls level is gently raked and the spaces for wheelchair user and companion are on the aisles in rows B and H.
There are 25 steps down from the Foyer/Box Office to the Stalls Bar. You are welcome to use our lift. The Stalls Bar affords level access to the Stalls auditorium.
Our Dress Circle level is steeply raked.
There are 14 steps from the Foyer to Dress Circle Entrance A, where you will enter at row G. There are 3 steps between each row, either down to row A or up to row M. There are 21 steps from the Foyer to Dress Circle Entrance B and 25 steps from the Foyer to Dress Circle Entrance C.
Wheelchair users are advised to arrive 20 minutes prior to the performance.
Please note, Trafalgar Theatre is only able to accommodate small wheelchairs – up to 25” or 65 cm width and 43’’ or 110cm length (no mobility scooters) due to size and weight restrictions (225 kg max) of our lifts.
