London boasts a total of 241 professional theatres with more than 110,000 seats. Theatres form a key part of London’s international cultural prominence, together with making a huge economic impact on the capital.
The buildings that house London’s theatres are architectural wonders, often taken for granted by locals.
Our next Architecture Ride will be on Saturday 30 June exploring the history of London’s theatres through their design and architecture from the 17th to the 21st century.
