Trafalgar Studios is a venue that you might not be aware of unless you have actually been there; it is on the way to Westminster from Charing Cross and given its small size, hosts less high-profile productions. However, it is well worth a visit if you like an intimate setting and getting a first look at potential huge shows of the future. It often hosts plays which are better-suited to smaller spaces.

There are two ‘studios’ – Studio 1 (380 seats) is much bigger than Studio 2 (100 seats) and visitors to both have the use of the bar downstairs. Given the small size, it doesn’t have the ladies’ toilets problem suffered by most of the larger West End theatres, which is a welcome change.
