Seating Plan

Due to the age and design of the building and due to the staging of some productions the Grand Circle and some seats at the sides of the auditorium may have a restricted view. There are also some seats with a pillar restricted view. An interactive seating plan is available.


There is no parking at the Theatre itself, however, there are several large car parks within walking distance of the Theatre, including Charlotte Street and Southgate. Both charge for evening parking – Southgate approx. £2 per evening, and Charlotte Street approx. £5 per evening (when last checked).

The Theatre Royal Bath can be found by following the brown tourist & pedestrian sign posts, and is no more than 10-15 minutes walk from any of the car parks listed.

Matinee audiences may wish to make use of one of the three park and ride schemes which service the City Centre from Lansdown, Odd Down and Newbridge.

All drop-off and collection points are within easy walking distance of the Theatre Royal.

Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair spaces are available in the Stalls and Royal Circle at a reduced price. Accompanying person pays half price.
