Playhouse Theatre location

On the north bank of the River Thames in an area called Embankment, the Playhouse theatre is just a stone’s throw away from legendary tourist attractions like the London Eye and Buckingham Palace. There's also a whole load of brilliant bars, clubs, restaurants and hotels along the Strand, just a stroll away. The area is well connected by public transport, although parking is a bit tricky.
