Ambassadors Theatre



Ambassadors Theatre

Found on West Street, London, The Ambassadors Theatre is one of the smallest West End theatres, but nevertheless still mighty. It has been open for over 100 years and was once home to Britain’s longest-running show: Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. The murder mystery opened at The Ambassadors on 25th November 1952 and ran all the way until its 21st Birthday when it then moved next door to the larger St Martin’s Theatre. A commemorative statuette which was presented to the theatre by Agatha Christie herself is located at Ambassadors stall bar! Visit this popular venue and buy tickets to enjoy a variety of different performances.
