Prepare to be chilled by the spine-tingling tales of the 500 ghosts that haunt this building, find out why lavender is a banned substance, why whistling is frowned upon and revel in the bawdy anecdotes of many an actor, playwright and impresario.

Please note
There’s plenty to see on this exciting tour, but there are a lot of stairs so make sure you wear flat shoes. In the interests of your own comfort, we don’t advise attending if you are infirm. To make sure we can kick off promptly, please assemble in the Box Office area ten minutes before the tour commences. And do remember that while part of the charm comes from Theatre Royal, Drury Lane being a working building, we do occasionally have to vary some of the tour content due to rehearsals, as some areas may be closed from time to time.
