  1. Hi, we are coming to see Eddie Izzard on 27th January. Please can you tell me the approximate time the show ends so that we can organise transport.
    Many thanks

  2. Hi, we are staying in Cittadines Trafalgar Square when coming to see Harry Potter next year. Could you please advise the best way to get between locations?

    1. Hi Jonathan,

      The Palace Theatre is a mere 15 minute walk through Central London from Citadines Trafalgar Square. Alternatively, take the northern line underground from Embankment to Leicester Square, which would be an 8 minute journey.

      I hope this helps.
