Patrons with access requirements can be driven to our level access door located to the left of our main entrance on Argyll Street.

These spaces have a maximum stay of 4 hours between 8.30am and 6.30pm and are located approximately 200 metres from the main entrance.
Oxford Circus is the closest TFL Underground Station located approximately 100 metres from our main entrance. However, this station is not in possession of step free access. The nearest step free access station is Tottenham Court Road.

Getting into The London Palladium
Our level access ramp to the Stalls is located to the left of our main entrance on Argyll Street. We have attendants at the front of the building who are there to assist with access to this door and dedicated access hosts to assist patrons to their seats.
Inside The London Palladium
Our accessible seats are located on the left-hand side of the Stalls auditorium. Once inside, our access hosts are available to take patrons to these seats via our lift and specific ramps we have in place. These seats offer fantastic views of the stage. Please be advised however that there is no level access to all areas and levels of the building. The London Palladium is a listed Victorian building and although we have a lift to the Stalls, unfortunately, the two circles are not accessible for wheelchair users. Our lift can fit up to 8 people with a maximum weight of 630kg. The measurements for our lift are 900mm in width and a depth of 1.2 metres.
To reach our accessible seating, please enter through our level access door located to the left of the main entrance. One of our hosts will then meet you in our box office to take you to the Stalls in the lift. The entrance to the auditorium is then through our Stalls bar and up the ramp located on the left most wall. The accessible seats are then located to the left-hand side of the auditorium at the ends of row L, O, Q and S. For concerts, the seats will be located in rows B and C.
Accessibility for Performers
The London Palladium has limited space for performers with access requirements. We do however have a dressing room complete with its own toilet facilities and access to the stage. For more information please contact the theatre management team.
