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.
Covent Garden to Leicester Square
The tube journey on the Piccadilly line between Leicester Square and Covent Garden is London’s shortest, travelling only 260 metres. It lasts only 45 seconds and at £29.81 per mile, is one of the worlds’ most expensive rail journeys – enough of an incentive to take the scenic route and walk.
