About the The Bunker

The Bunker is one of London's newest Off-West End theatres housed in a former underground parking garage in London Bridge.

The space has been transformed from its original abandoned state into a unique 110-seater studio thetare.

With four concrete pillars marking out the thrust performance space, an eclectic mix of audience seating on three sides of the stage, and a snug bar tucked into the corner of the venue, The Bunker has a unique character.

Access information


The Bunker is situated at the bottom of a ramp in a former parking garage in the basement of a Grade ii Listed Building.

They have made all efforts to make the venue as accessible as possible for all patrons.

You will find more information on the theatre website access page.

Wheelchair access

The Bunker is accessed by two ramps that have a steep incline.

Patrons in wheelchairs will require assistance from one of the Front of House team to ensure safe and smooth access.

There are spaces for wheelchairs to be positioned in the front row of seating in the venue with excellent views of the stage.

There is also an adjacent space for a carer or supporter, who will be allocated a free ticket.

The venue can accommodate up to three wheelchair spaces per performance, but you are encouraged to be in touch before your arrival so the venue can best accommodate your needs.

There are disabled access toilets adjacent to the entrance of The Bunker as part of the venue’s main toilet block.

The Bunker Bar has a narrow entrance, so is not fully wheelchair accesible.

All accommodations will be made to ensure any patrons in wheelchairs can access the bar before and after a performance at The Bunker.
