STAY IN Apartment Hotels near Queen’s Theatre
The Queen’s Theatre is one of the most iconic theatres in London’s West End. Standing in the heart of Soho on Shaftesbury Avenue, it’s been open to the public since October 1907. Over the years it has played host to countless talents and performers, including Fred and Adele Astaire, Peggy Ashcroft and Noel Coward (who had the Noel Coward Theatre named after him in his honour in 2006).
This magnificent building survived a German bomb, that landed directly on the theatre, destroying the facade and lobby areas. It then remained closed for almost 20 years until a £250,000 restoration was completed bringing it back to its former glory.
Today, the Queen’s Theatre is home to Cameron Mackintosh’s celebrated production, Les Miserables. This epic production has been seen by over 70 million people, in 51 different countries and 22 languages worldwide, and now holds the impressive title of the West End’s longest running show. Watch the captivating story of Jean Valjean unfold and enjoy the magical hit songs ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ and ‘On My Own’ brought to life in front of your eyes.
