About Kings Theatre Edinburgh

One of Britain’s most opulent touring venues, the King’s Theatre has recently undergone a major refurbishment which has seen big improvements for the beloved Edinburgh venue, not least of which is the brand new seating which affords much more legroom and an altogether more comfortable audience experience.

The clean, fresh design of the modernised Box Office sits nicely alongside the Art Nouveau splendour of the original foyer, but it is the King’s auditorium that commands the wow factor; an Aladdin’s cave of Viennese Baroque, with plush gilt fittings and a glorious chandelier above.

Now the King’s is Edinburgh’s home of West End drama and quality touring theatre, ensuring local audiences have the chance to see some of the UK’s most prolific actors and best touring productions on home turf. Over the years the King’s has played host to some of the world’s biggest stars of screen and stage, including Sir Laurence Olivier, Maria Callas, Lesley Neilsen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellan, Penelope Keith, Simon Callow – and Sir Sean Connery even worked backstage here!
