Sadler's Wells TheatreModern contemporary dance and music performance space. Occupying a site with a long tradition of entertaining Londoners, Sadler's Wells exists to bring the best of national and international dance, ballet, opera and music theatre to the capital. Now a strikingly modern building with flexible performance and auditorium spaces, the original Sadler's Wells opened in 1683. Six Sadler's Wells later and sleek steel and glass have replaced the crumbling brick edifice of previous centuries. Originally a music hall, the venue now boasts a resoundingly contemporary but extremely accessible programme - with an emphasis on dance and movement - supported by innovative visual arts exhibitions in its public spaces. Sadler's really came into its own when Lilian Baylis took charge in the 1920s. Since then many of the world's best dancers have performed on this Islington stage. In 1995, Matthew Bourne premiered his magnificent Swan Lake here which went on to become the West End's longest running ballet. Sadler's Wells continues to have close associations with the centrally located Peacock Theatre, its home during periods of renovation, while the Lilian Baylis Theatre - now a highly regarded venue in itself is located within the Sadler's Wells Islington complex. Its really worth checking out whats on here if youre down for the weekend. Ranging from the cutting-edge to the mainstream, some truly landmark productions have taken place here over the years (Edward Scissorhands) which make this an attractive proposition for entertainment in the capital.

Best for:
Ballet and Bourne, Swan Lake and Scissorhands, contemporary dance and classics.
