In case you have never been there before, Theatre Royal is a wonderful old Victorian building just three minutes walk from Stratford Station, which itself is a mere 12 minutes from Liverpool Street on the Central Line. Stratford is also served by the Jubilee Line, The DLR, Overground and Mainline trains and is one of London’s primary transport hubs so getting there and back should not be a problem.
