The Palace Theatre is centrally located in London Theatreland and is situated close to many tube, railway and bus stations. The nearest tube station to the venue is Leicester Square, only 150 metres away and on the Piccadilly and Northern lines. Piccadilly Circus is nearby which is on both the Bakerloo and Piccadilly lines. If you are coming by bus, then there are several that you can take to bring you to the Palace Theatre. These are the numbers 14, 19, 24, 29, 38, 40 and 176. Purchasing day travel cards are a good way to get around the city in one day by using just one ticket, or alternatively you can buy an Oyster card which can be bought and topped up at any London Underground station. Oyster cards are the cheapest way to get around London and can be used on any London transportation.

…by car or taxi

For those who wish to drive to the theatre, then the nearest car park to the Palace is the Q-Park (formally the Westminster City Council Car Park) in Chinatown. Prices are usually £20 to stay for up to four hours, but the Q-Park participates in a half-price theatre discount if you have you theatre tickets with you. Drivers should be aware that the theatre is within the London Congestion Charge Zone, which applies until 7pm each week day.  If you wish to hail a black cab after a performance then you should be able to do this easily as there will be many outside and nearby to the Palace Theatre.
