Guide dogs and assistance dogs

Guide dogs and assistance dogs are welcome inside the auditorium, although we are always delighted to look after your guide or assistance dog during the show – the choice is yours.

We will provide your dog with a water bowl, and can take them for walks during the show.

Parking near the London Coliseum

There are a couple of disabled bays in St Martin’s Lane and in Charing Cross Road. However, these do get snapped up very quickly so we don’t recommend that you rely solely on them.

Instead, we recommend getting dropped off at the theatre in time for the driver to get to Q-Park Trafalgar on Spring Gardens, which is on the other side of Trafalgar Square.

You can receive a 50% discount at this car park, as well as other nearby car parks.  To redeem your discount, please ask the foyer desk at the London Coliseum to validate your car parking ticket and present it to an attendant at your chosen car park.

More information about disabled parking in the area is available on the Westminster Council website.
