Fortune Theatre location
On Russell Street itself, the Fortune is just off Drury lane and Covent Garden. The theatre shares its territory with the much larger West End venues, the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Novello and Royal Opera House. Its central location means there's a wealth of restaurants, cafés, clubs and bars to be found close by and the public transport links are excellent.
