The grand old dames of Singapore’s performing arts scene, Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall (VTVCH), returns after a three-year refurbishment to Singapore's growing arts and cultural landscape. Its elegant Victorian facade is well-preserved, so are its famed clock tower and original passageway connecting the theatre and concert hall. Walk through this charming building to see its heritage elements carefully conserved, namely its 152-year-old twin domes. Providing mid-sized performance venues, VTVCH fills a gap in the local arts scene, and now has improved acoustics, music and dance rehearsal rooms and state-of-the-art facilities.

Went there for our wedding photoshoot. Extremely beautiful location. Quiet, serene, beautiful. Guards were friendly, did not chase us away but told us nicely the guidelines. Full of vending machines for hungry visitors too.

Stunningly beautiful building with amazing acoustics; I liked the huge sprawling fields and public amenities for people to rest their feet.

No guided tours were available in the theater during our visit, so we ended up exploring it from the outside, with numerous photo-ops of it and the area surrounding it.
