THE PALACE THEATRE
The Palace Theatre is an 'island' theatre, that is it stands alone with roads on all four sides. View Street Map. It is located on the West side of Cambridge Circus, a very busy cross roads between Shaftesbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road which is traffic light controlled.
The theatre has a 20 metre (66 feet) frontage that opens out onto a pedestrian area. The front has an ornate glass and iron work canopy which extends around the sides.
