Discover London: The Coronet Theatre Tour
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
We are delighted to open our doors and offering free guided tours of Notting Hill’s iconic theatre.
The Coronet Theatre started life in 1898, designed by WGR Sprague, architect of many of the West End’s most beautiful theatres. Edward VII often visited, Ellen Terry and Sarah Bernhardt trod its boards, and it was where John Gielgud saw his first Shakespeare play.
In 1923 it became the much-loved Coronet Cinema, but was increasingly neglected until taken over by Founder & Artistic Director, Anda Winters, in 2014. As it is gradually restored, today the building combines grand architecture with an intimate and warm setting, featuring candlelit hallways, antique décor, stage props and the most beautiful theatre bar in London.
The tour lasts 1 hour.
At the end of the tour, you can relax and have a drink in our candlelit stalls bar, “the most atmospheric bar in the known universe” (The Telegraph).
