 Theatre Royal Drury Lane popularly called as Drury Lane is a famous West End Theatre in Covent Garden located in the London Borough of Westminster. This is oldest amongst four theatres in the same location, where the oldest theatre was in the year 1663. Interestingly for two centuries, theatre was regarded as one of the leading theatres.

 During the initial years of English Restoration, first theatre on this site was constructed and was called as Theatre Royal in Bridges Street for Thomas Killigrew. Some of the most popular actors of that time performed at the theatre such as Nell Gwyn and Charles Hart.

 In the year 1672, the theatre was burnt with fire and constructed a larger theatre which was designed by Sir Christopher Wren. Theatre was renamed as Theatre Royal in Drury Lane and was reopened in the year 1674. For almost 120 years, the building stood under the supervision of Colley Cibber, David Garrick and Richard Brinsley Sheridan.

 Under the grand management of Sheriden, building was destructed in the year 1791. In the year 1794, larger theatre was opened. However, theatre survived only for 15 years and burnt down in the year 1809. In the year 1812, theatre was reopened. Andrew Lloyd Webber is the current owner of the theatre and it is listed under Grade I building.

Royal Drury Lane Theatre also known as Royal Ghosts Theatre is regarded as one of the most haunted theatres of London. Some come and experience the magic of enjoyable Charlie and Chocolate Factory at the Royal Drury Lane Theatre!
