The guided tour is excellent and great value. What a fab-u-lous place! Informative guide and a most interesting visit. Highly recommend. Some narrow stairs to negotiate. However there is a lift to the different levels.

We’ve been to this unique theatre many times for performances but never done the tour. Over the Bank Holiday we had a visitor to stay and thought it a perfect addition to an outing to Richmond. At only £5 each (£4 for English Heritage members)...More
