Theatre Royal

Holiday Travel Guide
Theatre Royal

Follow in the footsteps of George VI and Elizabeth II with a trip to see a production in this iconic theater near Windsor Castle.

The Theatre Royal is a shining Edwardian edifice, where everything from music tribute shows and pantomimes to classic plays and even scientific lectures are brought to the stage. Its movie theater façade is evidence of its former role as a cinema. Watch a play and gaze up occasionally at the crystal chandelier creeping into view from above.

Admire the historic frontage and walk beneath the starry ceiling of the portico. The British flag flies from the center of the façade. Find your red seat and glance around at the opulent setting, comprising gold-leafed balconies and a red velvet curtain. Shows often debut here, before continuing to London’s famous West End or a tour of the country.

Bring your family to a traditional pantomime, where you can all join a chorus of boos and laughter in reaction to the farce. The auditorium can seat 633 people. Have snacks and drinks at the Circle Bar, the Stalls Bar and the Coffee Shop.

Note that the complex began in 1910 as a cinema, which is reflected in the amphitheater’s design. King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II attended shows, helping to make the theater popular among many members of the royal family.

Purchase tickets as part of a deal including a riverside restaurant and a spa hotel. Book tickets online or call the number on the official website to discuss boxes. Performance times vary but generally consist of an evening show Monday through Saturday as well as a matinee on Thursday and Saturday afternoons.

Find the Theatre Royal on the northern side of St. George’s Chapel in the Windsor Castle compound in Eton, 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of London. Travel to the adjacent Windsor & Eton Riverside railway station or take a water taxi to the Windsor Promenade.

See nearby highlights such as Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, the Queen Victoria Statue and the Windsor & Royal Borough Museum.
