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. If you have limited mobility and are thinking of paying a visit, please get in touch and the team will be happy to discuss access further with you.
If you are lucky enough to live close by then it is recommended to walk. The theatre is 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 (Queens Road) or at the side of Saint Paul’s 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 buses stopping at ‘Triangle West’ are available; the theatre is a 5 minute walk from there.
The Theatre is a 10 minute walk away from Clifton Down Train Station. Just head down Whiteladies Road and turn right onto St Paul’s Road.
Unfortunately there is no onsite parking, however there is street parking and multistorey parking nearby.
The theatre is 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. It is recommended to give an extra half hour travel time if you are planning to look for on-street parking.
