Ambassadors Theatre location
Right in the middle of London’s theatreland, the Ambassadors sits next to St Martin’s theatre, home to Agatha Christie’s murder mystery The Mousetrap, the longest-running production in British theatre history.
The venue is close to Charing Cross Road, Shaftesbury Avenue, Leicester Square and Covent Garden, all hugely popular with tourists and Londoners alike, and the public transport links are excellent.
- The nearest tube stations are Leicester Square (for the Northern and Piccadilly lines) and Covent Garden (for the Piccadilly line), both within easy walking distance
