Wyndham's Theatre is a West End theatre, one of two opened by the actor/manager Charles Wyndham (the other is the Criterion Theatre). Located on Charing Cross Road in the City of Westminster, it was designed c.1898 by W.G.R. Sprague, the architect of six other London theatres between then and 1916. It was designed to seat 759 patrons on three levels although later refurbishment increased this to four. The theatre was Grade II* listed by English Heritage in September 1960.HistoryWyndham had always dreamed of building a theatre of his own and through the admiration of a patron and the financial confidence of friends, he was able to realise his dream when Wyndham's Theatre opened on 16 November 1899, in the presence of the Prince of Wales. The first play performed there was a revival of T. W. Robertson's David Garrick.In 1910, Gerald du Maurier began an association with the theatre which lasted 15 years and to include the stage debut of the screen actress Tallulah Bankhead. Du Maurier's small daughter, Daphne, often watched her father's performance from the wings. Thirty years later she presented her own play, The Years Between, on the same stage.Put Wyndhams Theatre into our London road trip site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

This venerable 120 year old theatre is such an experience to visit and to watch a live act in, with it’s wooden moldings, beautiful box seats and painted cupola adds to the overall history and elegance. Watched Fleabag here and sound and lightening was all modern and great quality. If you sit in the stalls, there is a bar directly outside and we were allowed to bring our beers (in cups) to our seats once the show opened.
Went to see "The starry messenger", which was very lovely. The theatre really invites one to imagine what it was like when it was constructed. Staff were friendly and seemed genuinely happy to help. Stage was very visible from our seats, audio was good. Lastly, our tickets were cheap. Very good quality/price ratio and would definitely recommend having this great experience!
