Access information



Wheelchair access

The Duke of York's seating design incorporates two wheelchair spaces in the Royal Circle (level access), with an accompanying companion seat.

Due to the listed design of the theatre, the auditorium can only accommodate a maximum of two wheelchairs per performance.

Alternatively, the patron can transfer into designated transfer seats in the Royal Circle (level access), while the wheelchair remains in the foyer with front of house staff.

Both wheelchair spaces and transfer seats are accessed via the main entrance to the foyer.

The Duke of York's Theatre has two licensed bars, neither of which have level access. To access the Stalls bar there are 23 steps down from the foyer, and to access the Circle bar there are 23 steps up from the foyer. Ice-cream and merchandise are on sale in the foyer.
