Join us for our Theatre Tours with our in-house expert guide who’ll guide you through the theatre’s 253-year history – from the origin of its beautiful Georgian design, to tales of the myriad first-class actors who have trod our boards over the years.
Explore the recent developments to our building: the new front of house foyer space, studio theatre, and our long-awaited heritage offer. Also enjoy the classic elements of the building that have kept this theatre running for over 250 years, including access to areas such as our historic auditorium, and several side- and backstage areas.
The perfect morning outing for anyone interested in theatre and Bristol Old Vic’s rich history.
- Audio Enhancement via a headset of the loop system is available
- Our Tour script can be requested in advance or on the day
- The Tour includes steps, and whilst every effort has been made to make this tour accessible, the gallery can only be accessed via steps
As a working theatre with ongoing performances, rehearsals and other technical work, there are certain times when parts of the building will be inaccessible. We always endeavour to provide a true behind-the-scenes experience, but in rare circumstances it may be necessary for tours to be rescheduled.
