The Coronet Theatre Tour
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
To mark Open House London weekend, we are opening 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.
Tours start every 30 minutes from 10:00am – 1:00pm on Sat and until 5:00pm on Sun, and last for up to 25 minutes. We have limited tour sizes and previously have experienced high demand for tours. We may be able to include some ‘just turn up’ spots, but to avoid disappointment, please book onto tours via the button below.
Due to the nature of our historic Grade II listed building, unfortunately The Coronet Theatre is not currently wheelchair accessible. If you have a specific access requirement, please contact us on 020 3642 6606 or email email@example.com and we will do our best to help you.
