With a history dating back to 1916, St. Martin's Theatre is among the most legendary venues in London’s West End Theater District and one of the few remaining privately owned theaters in London. Housed in a magnificent Grade II-listed building, the theater is best known as the home of the West End’s long-running play The Mousetrap.
Performances of Agatha Christie’s classic mystery The Mousetrap are held daily (except Sunday) at St. Martin's Theatre, and the beautifully restored auditorium offers an impressive but intimate setting. Theatergoers can choose between seats in the Dress Circle, Upper Circle, or Stalls. Booking tickets in advance is highly recommended.
Things to Know Before You Go
- The Mousetrap runs for about two hours and 20 minutes, including an interval.
- Drinks and snacks are available to purchase before the show and during intermission.
- The theater is wheelchair accessible; there are three steps to enter the theater, but if you inform the staff in advance, they will provide a ramp.
