There are coach bays on Belvedere Road for short stay pick up and drop off, just a two minute walk from the entrance to County Hall.

These bays are operated by Merlin Events and require a permit as they are also used by customers for its South Bank attractions.

The performance lasts approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes (including one 20 minute interval). The theatre advises that groups should arrive at least half an hour before the start time as bag and ticket checks are in operation.
