His Majesty’s Theatre
Once described by Billy Connolly as ‘playing inside a wedding cake,’ His Majesty’s Theatre is an architectural marvel, even before you begin to look at who has performed there. Whether it is contemporary dance, West End theatre shows, a seasonal panto, or the latest performance by Scottish Opera or Scottish Ballet, it’s all here. Opened in 1906 (and 1906 is also the name of the Theatre’s restaurant) and designed by Frank Matcham, there are over 1400 seats in this iconic venue. It really has played host to some of the greatest names in show business: Noel Coward, Alec Guinness, Vivien Leigh, and Ian McKellan, to name a few.
