The Royal Theatre on Drury Lane is somewhere you can spend the day visiting if you fancy some theatre history, afternoon tea and a show.
A behind the scenes tour
Learn about the history of the theatre, and London, with a one hour tour taking in the refurbished foyer, the beautiful auditorium and down to the tunnels underneath London.
Discover more about the recently refurbished theatre as 2 actors host a tour reenacting scenes and bringing some of the theatre’s history back to life. Watch out for the grey ghost, hear about why there are two Royal Boxes and a King and Prince’s separate entrances, and much more.
Regency Afternoon Tea
Afternoon Tea is a real treat in the theatre’s grand Regency room. Choose from an extensive tea menu before your pre booked afternoon tea arrives. Everyone is catered for here, with gluten free, vegan, and bespoke options available.

The Royal Regency Afternoon Tea with a glass of either The Prince’s Punch or non-alcoholic King’s Punch for £66.
Or a Regency Afternoon Tea for £59.
Celebrate the magic of the festive season with an enchanting Christmas Afternoon Tea. Enjoy Christmas inspired pastries and bakes, turkey and cranberry pies under the warm glow of twinkling lights.
A night at the theatre
Currently on stage at the theatre is Frozen the musical. Nothing beats the buzz of live theatre, and when it’s a Disney show you get to soak up a wonderful atmosphere from a theatre full of tiny Prince and Princesses dressed up and so very excited to see Elsa and her frozen world on stage.
If you’re lucky enough you might see a rehearsal in stage during the tour.
Is there anything better than a night at the theatre, well, yes, when it’s a day at the theatre I guess, especially when you’ve maxed out on the experience and enjoyed every minute of it.
