The Phoenix TheatreWednesday 24 February 2010 by Sam Moore London’s finest theatre
Situated between Leicester Square and Tottenham Court Road tube stops it’s in the heart of the theatre district.
The striking theatre in London’s West end, which opened in 1930, has been home to many a fantastic production. For 21 years it held the renowned Blood Brothers, today it is home to an array of well-reviewed productions.
Designed in an Italian style, the Phoenix resonates the feeling of grandeur with its golden wall engravings and plush, red carpets.
The Seven Dials is nearby; a lively, buzzing snippet of modern London: full of pubs, bars and cafés making it a perfect pre-theatre dinner destination, or for post-show drinks.
Always busy, this intriguing area of London that links Covent Garden to Soho is a delight to explore.
