PLAN YOUR VISIT
The Bristol Improv Theatre is located very close to lots of major transport networks, and the easiest way to find us is via walking or bus. Please see below for more information on the different ways to get here.
If you are lucky enough to live close by then we recommend taking in the evening air and walking. We are located at 50 St Pauls Road, BS8 1LP.
The Improv Theatre is located on St. Paul’s Road, just off Whiteladies Road. There is plenty of bicycle parking at the Richmond building Building (Queens Road) or at the side of Saint Pauls Church.
The No. 8 stops on the adjacent road by the Victoria rooms, and the No.9 stops directly outside. Catch them from Redland, Bristol Temple Meads Train Station and the City Centre. All busses stopping at ‘Triangle West’ are available, the theatre is a 5min walk from there.
The Theatre is a 10min walk away from Clifton Down train station. Just head down Whiteladies Road and turn right onto St Pauls Road.
Unfortunately we do not have onsite parking, there is however street parking and multistory parking nearby.
We are a 5 minute walk from the West End Car Park in Berkley Place, just off the Clifton Triangle or a 15 minute walk from the Clifton Down car park. Finding parking in the surrounding streets can be challenging, and may be some walk away. We recommend giving an extra half hour travel time if you are planning to look for on-street parking.
There is currently no provision for wheelchair access, as there are steps at both the front and rear of the building. Those with limited mobility may find entry difficult. We apologise for this and are working on solutions. If you have limited mobility and are thinking of paying us a visit, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss access further with you.
This historic building has served the wider Bristol community for many years. After months of refurbishments it now boasts multi-purpose theatre spaces, high spec technical equipment and an experienced team of event managers and technicians to help you realise your event.
