Visited the theatre last Monday to see Pressure. Amazing play. Great staff. Theatre seats VERY uncomfortable making concentration hard due to cramped seats causing painful knees. Would return but hopefully seated in another part of the theatre the next time.

OMG whatever you do give this place a miss if you are a wheelchair user. You are not even allowed to stay sitting in your wheelchair, no ramps, no accessible toilet. I thought these kind of places became illegal decades ago!!!

The theatre opened in 1913 and it looks like it hasn't been refurbished since.The overhang (circle) come quite far across the stalls; was this an extension to add more space? I hear there may be a change of ownership followed by a refurbishment.

Let's be blunt: when people talk about a quaint, intimidate theatre they often mean it's simply uncomfortable. And on a hot August night in central London, the Ambassadors takes discomfort to almost artistic levels. Roughly half the people in the front row of the Dress...More
