Located just up from the Aldwych Theatre on Kingsway, the Peacock Theatre is slightly removed from the main area of Theatreland. However, this can have its benefits, as the number of tourists to wade through is greatly reduced. The popular areas of Covent Garden and the Strand are close by. The theatre sits just off a major transport thoroughfare, so getting to the venue is never a problem.
