Trafalgar Theatre first opened in 1930 as the Whitehall Theatre and is aptly situated along Whitehall and adjacent to the popular tourist area of Trafalgar Square. The theatre, which will open in Spring 2021 following a multi-million pound redevelopment, is situated in the vicinity of many other London theatres, including the London Coliseum and the Adelphi Theatre. Due to the theatres location in a busy tourist area, there are many nearby transportation links that make getting to the theatre fairly easy.
