The Gielgud Theatre is one of six London Theatres located on Shaftesbury Avenue.

Previously called The Globe, the theatre was built in 1906 and appears quite magnificent. It is four storeys high with a turret, and the interior is richly decorated in the Baroque style with a lovely curved Regency staircase.

In 1994 the theatre was renamed the Gielgud as a special tribute to Sir John and to distinguish it from the newly opened Shakespeare's Globe on the South Bank.
