About Trafalgar Studios

The Trafalgar Studios are two venues housed within what was London's Whitehall Theatre. The building itself is Grade II listed, and is an excellent example of simple, unadorned Art Deco style. The interior, however, is spectacular, with complex, cubist designs and sweeping curves of moulding and ironwork. More about Trafalgar Studios
