About Ambassadors Theatre
The theatre was, along with the adjacent St Martin's conceived by their architect, W. G. R. Sprague, as companions, born at the same time in 1913, but the First World War interrupted the construction of the latter for three years. The theatre was Grade II listed by English Heritage in March 1973.
The Ambassadors was built with the intention of being an intimate, smaller theatre and is situated opposite the renowned restaurant The Ivy, favourite haunt of the theatrical elite. It is one of the smallest of the West End theatres, seating a maximum of 195 people in the Dress Circle and 251 in the Stalls.
There is a small step into the foyer, where you will find the box office on the left. There are 26 steps down to the stalls auditorium and five up to the dress circle. All staircases have handrails and steps are highlighted.
You will find more information on the theatre website access page.
