Built where the majestic Savoy Palace once stood, the Savoy Theatre is one of the oldest and most iconic West End Theatres still running. It was designed by Richard D’Oyly Carte to stage the opera by Gilbert and Sullivan...
These comedic operas became so popular that they boosted the theatre's reputation. And soon, Gilbert and Sullivan were better known as the Savoy operas by theatre lovers.
The legacy of this theatre is unmatched, and so is its beauty. Missing a trip to this place if you’re in London is a big no-no. So get yourself a ticket to this theatre right now!
Rising from the Ashes
The Savoy Theatre has literally risen from the Ashes after a big fire in 1990. Unfortunately, this massive accident destroyed the gorgeous building. However, it was soon rebuilt, and the design was kept very similar to its1929 style. This 1929 model included three-tier seating and clean-cut yet regal interiors with impressive accents.
When it reopened, it was celebrated with a memorable royal gala. Today, the theatre has about 1158 seats, making it a medium-sized theatre on the West End. It also has a health club and swimming pool.
The newly opened theatre also played host to the World Chess Championship, making the venue far more recognised even amongst those not associated with theatre.
Due to its immense popularity, securing seats at Savoy is a tedious task. So hurry and book yours in advance by checking out the list of shows below!
