Royal Court Theatre

The Royal Court Theatre was built in 1888 and has two performance spaces. The theatre was rebuilt in 1996.

The two performance spaces at the Royal Court Theatre consist of - The Theatre Downstairs (Main House) and the smaller Theatre Upstairs. The present building was completed in 1888 and opened as the New Court Theatre. The venue was used as a cinema from 1935 to 1940 but eventually in 1952, the building re-opened as a theatre. In 1956, the English Stage Company took control of the Royal Court.

The interior of the theatre was completely rebuilt in 1996, except for the auditorium and the façade, and reopened in February 2000.

The Royal Court Theatre is a small off-West End venue located on Sloane Square with a capacity of 389 seats and has three levels compromising of the larger Jerwood Theatre Downstairs and the slightly more intimate Jerwood Theatre Upstairs. There is flexible seating to suit each production however, as it is a small venue, there are generally very good views of the stage throughout the auditorium.

The best seats are in the Stalls which have a decent rake and offer great views of the stage, although the intimate auditorium allows for close-up views wherever you are sat. The Circle is also a great place to sit for a clear overall view of the stage from an elevated position.

Patrons on a budget or just looking to book cheap tickets can find good value either in the Balcony on the second floor, or the Slips in the Circle where tickets are moderately priced and offer a clear view of the stage
