Whether you see a play or music concert . The Grand is just that .a beautiful restored theatre with not a bad seat in the house. A great lobby overlooking Richmond st for an intermission drink. Go if you get the chance!

We went to the Highschool project production of Legally Blonde and it was FANTASTIC. It was hard to comprehend that these kids were not professional actors. Grand theatre has comfortable seats and a great reception area.

I've been attending plays at the Grand several times a year for many years now, both with friends and with family. December's play is always family-oriented but the remainder of each season is quite eclectic. The historical theatre itself is quite a sight to see.

Grand Theatre is a hallmark, really, in London. Performances are very well done and there have been none that I attended which I did not enjoy totally! Right downtown London surrounded with great restaurants, I have found it makes for a super night out.

The Grand is one of the most beautiful theatres I have ever seen. A former opera house, it is quite intimate and cosy. The theatrical offerings are another matter, however. Under Robin Phillips as artistic Director from 1983-84 and then Martha Henry from 1988-1995 the...More

Hi Deb W, There is metered parking on nearby streets and a few lots on nearby streets as well. There is nothing right at the theatre though.
