Apollo Victoria Theatre

17 Wilton Rd, Pimlico, London, SW1V 1LG

The Basics

You can book in advance to secure seats at the best-selling show, with options available to suit various budgets. As you settle in, notice the auditorium’s aquatically inspired decor and atmospheric lighting—the Apollo Victoria was the first theater to use an entirely LED system. To combine a visit to the venue with additional sightseeing, and for intimate insight into the history of Theatreland (aka the West End), consider joining a guided city tour.

When to Get There

West End theater is a treat at any time of year. However, there’s something festive about a winter matinee, followed by a wander around London’s illuminated streets. Matinees take place every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon, while evening shows run daily except on Sunday. On-the-day seats are released each morning at the Wilson Road Box Office and sold on a first-come-first-serve basis, limited to two tickets per person.

Wandering Westminster

The Apollo Victoria’s convenient location makes it an easy stop while sightseeing in London’s famous City of Westminster. As the theater is just over a 10-minute walk from iconic sights such as Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s Gallery, and the Royal Mews, spend a day admiring the royal grounds and exploring the sprawling St. James’s Park before strolling south to catch the evening show.
