                    The Duchess Theatre is located on Catherine Street, near to Covent Garden in London’s West End. Below you can find information on how to get to the theatre and a map showing the location of the venue.

                    If you’re driving into the West End to see a show, take advantage of Q-Park’s Theatreland Parking Scheme. Save 50% off parking with Q-Park (after 12pm and for up to 4 hours). To qualify, simply present your Q-Park car park ticket for validation at our box office and the car park machine will automatically charge you half price. For details of locations and prices please visit Q-Park’s website.

                    Please be aware that for your comfort and security all audience members will be subject to security checks upon arrival at the Duchess Theatre. There are also incidental bits of action in the foyer and auditorium from around 15 minutes before the show begins. For both of these reasons we recommend patrons arrive at the venue in good time. The auditorium will open 30 minutes prior to performance start time.
