The Fortune Theatre, now one of the oldest buildings in existence to have been designed with a concrete facade, was the first London theatre to be built after World War I. In WWII it was a venue for forces entertainment, but it's now chiefly famous as the home, since 1989, of the second-longest-running show in the West End, The Woman in Black.
The theatre has limited wheelchair access and no dedicated spaces for wheelchair users. Guide dogs are not permitted in the auditorium because of loud noises in the show, but staff will look after them. The nearest Tube stations are Covent Garden (Piccadilly), Leicester Square (Northern/Piccadilly), Holborn (Central/Piccadilly) and Charing Cross (Bakerloo/Northern), which also has a surface rail station. The nearest bus stops are served by routes 24, 29 or 176.
