Gielgud Theatre location

The Gielgud Theatre is on the famous Shaftesbury Avenue, along with the Apollo theatre, the Queen’s and the Lyric. Sitting just on the edge of Soho, the venue is perfectly placed to enjoy all the attractions and entertainment this area has to offer. Public transport links to the Gielgud theatre are excellent too – just watch out for human traffic, as there are lots of people milling around, all going to the theatre at the same time.
