Earls Court

Your Visit

Earls Court

Our Earls Court festival site is located less than a five-minute walk from West Brompton Tube station. 

Earl’s Court has been an epicentre of arts, culture and accessible entertainment for London and the world for 130 years.
In that time it has been a haven for artists, performers and creatives - and a hotspot for those in search of both mainstream and alternative arts and culture.
From opera in the park to a wild night out to remember (or not), Earl’s Court has it all: Great takeaway food, fine dining, theatre, live music, outdoor performances, large sports pubs, secret watering holes and historic walks.

Food
A stroll along Earl’s Court’s main drag and backstreets offers the visitor a raft of food options from around the globe. For a full list, see here.

Theatre
For immersive off-West-End performances, the Finborough Theatre is an internationally recognised one-of-a-kind. This pub-theatre has a capacity of just 50 people, so book early for both radical new productions and reinterpretations. The theatre reopens on the 14 September.

Live Music
The Troubadour is London’s most iconic basement music venue. Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones and Elton John have played legendary sessions here and it retains the vibe.

Pubs
The neighbourhood also has a brilliant range of great bars, pubs - favourites include The Earl’s Court TavernThe Prince of TekThe King’s HeadThe Blackbird, and The Bolton.

Secret Watering Holes
Evans & Peel Detective Agency and the verdant back garden of The Troubadour are staunch favourites.

Historic Walks
Visit Brompton Cemetery to soak up extraordinary local history, visit the place where Alfred Hitchcock wrote some of the most seminal films, or walk along the streets where Freddie Mercury and Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd spent their most hedonistic years.
Home to Princess Diana, Dusty Springfield, Agatha Christie, William Butler Yeats, Howard Carter, Benjamin Britten, Beatrix Potter - the list of culturally influential Earl’s court residents is long and illustrious.
So, whether you want to take a musical pilgrimage, are in search of the perfect outdoor prosecco brunch or want to immerse yourself in a sublime arts and culture experience - Earl’s Court is the place for you.

Local Hotels
There are a great range of hotels on the quiet crescents and garden squares just moments from Earl’s Court Road. Prices start from £40 per night for a double room, so whether you’re looking for a cheeky overnight stay or a luxury getaway, there are plenty of options.
Check out K+K GeorgeHotel IndigoOliver Plaza and many more.
