The Strand has long been famous for housing several of London’s theatres, and it is easy to see why due to its perfect location along the River Thames, nearby to Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. The area is always alive with people bustling along the streets.
The address of the theatre is:
The Adelphi Theatre is located on the famous Strand, with nearest tube stations being Covent Garden on the Piccadilly Line which is 400m from the theatre, Embankment on the District, Circle, Northern and Bakerloo lines and Charing Cross on the Bakerloo and Northern Lines, both 300m away. Charing Cross is also a main line railway station, if coming by train.
For those wishing to drive to the theatre, there is a National Car Park on Drury Lane, which can be expensive to park in; expect to pay around £24 for up to four hours. There are other parking alternatives for those coming by car, as there are single yellow lines and parking meters on Maiden Lane which is behind the theatre, with additional meters further up from Maiden Lane.
Getting there by Tube or bus
The most convenient Tube stop to reach the Adelphi by is Covent Garden on the Piccadilly line, which is just 400m from the entrance. However, as this station can get very crowded at evenings and weekends you can opt to walk to the theatre from Embankment instead, which is serviced by the Northern, Circle, Bakerloo and District lines. The nearest mainline train station is Charing Cross, which is fortunately also located nearby to the theatre and is also reachable on the Bakerloo and Northern lines. As with most busy areas of London, there are many bus routes from all other parts of the city that will take you to Covent Garden and the Strand – you simply need to check the front board of the bus for destination information.
Getting there by car or taxi
If you are being dropped off at the theatre by taxi the main entrance is off the Strand. Taxis can be pricey and if you are only travelling a short distance and are capable of doing so by train or bus, public transport may be a better option. Alternatively, there is a National Car Park on nearby Drury Lane which you may be able to park in, but again with prices reaching up to £6 an hour it could be more sensible to get to grips with London’s tube system! There are also single yellow lines and parking meters on Maiden Lane which is just behind the theatre, although there is no guarantee that these will be available given the Adelphi’s central location.
