The Ambassadors Theatre is a comparative newcomer to the West End, opening its doors in 1913, since when it has staged a range of classic, popular and new theatre and musical productions. After emerging onto the scene over 100 years ago, it has welcomed many well-known names to its auditorium and was once home to the iconic The Mousetrap before it moved to the neighbouring St Martin’s Theatre. This still remains its most famous show running for more than twenty years ahead of its transfer. Surprisingly, the theatre stands as one of the most intimate in the West End, housing less than 500 people and is the place to go for intimate performances with the buzz, atmosphere and scale of high-end theatre in London. Set in the heart of ‘theatreland’, halfway between Leicester Square and Covent Garden tube stations, there is plenty to see and do before or after a show. From Covent Garden, you can explore the market, watch some street performers or stroll around the many shops. Whereas Leicester Square offers nightlife, cinemas and restaurants. The theatre is also opposite the world-famous Ivy Restaurant where you can dine with the elite if your budget allows!
