Sample London’s famous theatre and nightlife. It’s regarded as some of the best in the world.
The Lyceum Theatre is located in the City of Westminster, just off The Strand. There has been a theatre around London with this name since 1765, and the present site opened on 14 July 1834 - it was designed by Samuel Beazley. The building was unique as it had a balcony overhanging the circle. It was built in partnership with Peto & Grissell.
The present building retains Beazley's façade and grand portico, but the theatre behind is substantially to the 1904 design of Bertie Crewe, restored to theatrical use in 1996 by Holohan Architects, after a long period of use as a Mecca Ballroom.
