Formally the Comedy Theatre, the Harold Pinter Theatre is situated just off Haymarket on Panton Street. The theatre is close to the Theatre Royal Haymarket and Her Majesty's Theatre as well as the rest of Theatreland. As the theatre is located just a stones throw away from the busy tourist area of Piccadilly Circus, there are plenty of transportation links to the area as well as lots to do in terms of other attractions and places to drink and dine. I would always recommend checking: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/
