Venue Accessibility Information

About Our Venue

Theatre Royal Sydney is a heritage listed building originally designed in the 1970's. All foyers within the Venue have level access including the merchandise stand, box office, cloakroom, and bars. There are designated accessible bathrooms on Level 5 and 7, whilst our level access and wheelchair user seating is located in the Circle on Level 7. We recommend this seating to all patrons who may struggle with stairs or use mobility aids as access to all seats in the Stalls require patrons to walk up or down stairs.

Should you have any questions or concerns about access please don’t hesitate to contact the Box Office who recommend the best seats to suit your needs.

Vehicle Drop Off and Parking

The designated drop off for patrons requiring level access is on Castlereagh St adjacent to the office tower entrance. From here patrons can travel through the lobby to one of the lifts that provide direct access to all levels of the foyer.

If you are coming by car, the best place to park is at the Wilson Parking 25 Martin Place Car Park. See Parking for more details.

Accessing The Venue

The main access to the venue is via the main entrance on King Street. This is an accessible level entry and provides easy access to the stairs and lifts that operate on all levels of the foyer area. You may also access the theatre foyers from the retail areas in 25 Martin Place (this is especially handy if you are coming from Martin Place station or from 25 Martin Place car park). The Box Office and Main Foyer can be accessed through Level 6 of the 25 Martin Place Precinct. Our friendly front of house staff will also be in the foyer areas and will be happy to help you if you need additional assistance.

Wheelchair and Accessible Seating

Theatre Royal Sydney offers accessible seating in Row N of the Circle. This seating is available to patrons who may be wheelchair or mobility aid users, those with low mobility or struggle with stairs, and their companions. Patrons can elect to transfer into a seat or remain in their wheelchair. Please contact our box office with any questions about how to book these seats.

Limited Mobility or Trouble With Stairs

If you have limited mobility but can manage some stairs, seating which may be suitable include rows R, S and T of the Stalls and rows L and M of the Circle. If you use a mobility aid, we recommend our accessible seating in Row N of the Circle. Should you wish to discuss your options with the team please do not hesitate to contact us.

Hearing Loop

A hearing induction loop is available within the Auditorium and provides coverage to all seats in the venue. To connect to the hearing loop please switch your hearing aid to T-Mode.
