Harold Pinter Theatre

The Harold Pinter Theatre is a West End venue best known for hosting new plays and classic revivals. It was named the Harold Pinter Theatre in 2011, after the late Nobel Prize winner and in recognition of his contribution to comedy.

The theatre opened originally as the Royal Comedy Theatre in 1891 and the reputation grew during the First World War when C B Cochran and André Charlot presented their famous review shows.

The theatre has been the host location of a number of UK premiers including Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge and Tennessee Williams’ Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.

Duel Purpose

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.
