The Apollo Theatre is located on Shaftesbury Avenue, moments away from Piccadilly Circus, offering a plush, galleried auditorium staging modern dramas and classic plays in one of the West End’s best Edwardian style theatres.
From the Queen’s encounter with Marilyn Monroe, to the Rolling Stones’ first gigs, Leicester Square has hosted some of the most iconic moments of stage and screen. Today, there’s no shortage of audacious entertainment, thanks to the 4DX cinema experience, many of London’s oldest theatres and a nightclub with a dazzling 17,000 mirror disco ball.
Leicester square has been home to a number of historical figures. Statues of William Hogarth, Sir Joshua Reynolds, John Hunter and Sir Isaac Newton have all featured in the gardens, which at the centre, permanently showcases William Shakespeare.
