Kings Theatre Edinburgh upcoming events

2 Leven Street, Edinburgh
The Kings Theatre, standing on Leven Street in Edinburgh, first opened its doors in 1906. It is one of the most luxurious theatres in Scotland after its last major refurbishment in 1985. There are plans for another refurbishment to make the theatre more modern. It seats 1350 people, and this is just over half of its original capacity. The venue is mainly used for variety shows and also hosts Edinburgh's annual mainstream pantomime. Many big Scottish names have appeared there including Stanley Baxter and Jimmy Logan.

Venue Details

Getting there

The Kings Theatre is situated at 2 Leven Street in the Tollcross area of the city and is accessible by train, bus, or car. By train and tube: There is a train station near to the theatre which is Haymarket, but it is probably easier to get a train to Waverley Street station and then take a bus from there. By bus: The Lothian buses that go to the Kings Theatre are numbers 10, 11, 15, 15A, 16, 23, 27 and 45. By car: Driving from the centre, the west end of Princes Street, turn right up Lothian Road. At the top of Lothian Road is Tollcross with three forks. Take the right-hand fork and the theatre is about 500 meters on the left. International: The city is served well by trains, trams and buses from Edinburgh Airport, about 8 miles outside the city. The Airlink 100 Express or the N22 night bus both run from there.

Parking facilities

There is street parking near the theatre if you are lucky, but apart from that there is an underground car park at Riego Street and an NCP car park on Castle Terrace. The park had dedicated yellow lines, too. These are both about 15 minutes walk from the theatre, however.

Accessibility for people with special needs

There are excellent facilities for those with disabilities, with wheelchair access, wheelchair spaces, assistance for those who are visually or hearing impaired and disabled toilets. Please contact the venue in advance to discuss your exact requirements.
