What lies behind those doors?
If you’ve ever walked by the Winter Gardens and wondered what lies behind its distinctive doors, maybe now’s the time to find out. Guided tours are available on Sundays to anyone who wishes to drop in. Alternatively, visit the venue mid-week and book your slot in advance.
Guided tours are recommended for up to 12 people at a time and give you the chance to take in the theatre’s architecture and enjoy a glimpse behind the scenes. You’ll tour around the theatre for about an hour. You’ll get to see backstage and even step onto the iconic stage where so many famous names have performed over the years. The tour guide will be able to answer any questions you have and there is time at the end to talk about the Winter Garden’s future and the plans for its regeneration.
