His Majesty's Theatre

His Majesty's Theatre was commissioned to replace Aberdeen's smaller Her Majesty's Theatre. Designed by the great Frank Matcham and opened in 1906, it was refurbished in the early 1930s by local businessman James F Donald, who added external neon lighting to give Aberdeen that hint of Broadway, and a revolving stage. It has received further refurbishments in the early 1980s and 2000s, and supposedly has its own ghost roaming the corridors, named Jake. The theatre receives major touring shows, operas and stand-up comedy.

Aberdeen station is ten minutes' walk away, and the theatre is served by the 3, 3G, 4, 12, 37, 59, 220, 305, 420, N37 and X20 bus routes.

  • Provides: Free wi-fi
  • Open since: 1906
