Royal Lyceum Theatre

 History of The Royal Lyceum

The Royal Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh opened in 1883, and although it has undergone few refurbishments over the years, it remains very close to its original Victorian design. The theatre has close links with the Edinburgh International Festival, and its focus is on quality drama.

This theatre has been the starting place for many Scottish actors. In recent times, it has hosted performances from David Tennant, Alan Cumming and Emily Mortimer. However, in its early years, the likes of Henry Irving and Ellen Terry stood on its stage.
