Love this theatre one of the best!
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
I live in Aberdeen and go to this theatre regularly. To start with booking the tickets is easy it shows online where the wheelchair spaces are. There is a lot of wheelchair seats in the stalls, dress circle and upper circle.which is all accessible by the lift. The staff can't do enough for you both over the phone and in the venue.i have had tickets bought to me as a gift before which aren't wheelchair ones and I have called and they changed them no problem. The wheelchair seats all have good views even the ones right at the back. Entrance to the theatre, the box office bar and restaurant is all very accessible. Toilets also great and quite bigs think the one in the stalls could of had handrails closer to the toilet though
Transport & Parking
There is not really any disabled parking I think there is maybe 2 spaces round the back of the theatre but they are usually full. I usually get a taxi or get someone to drop me off if I am going as they can stop right outside the main entrance to drop off. There are also plenty of bus routes that go into the city centre near the theatre.
As stated above I can't fault anything with the access. Compared to other theatres I have been to all over like Edinburgh, Glasgow, London etc Aberdeen is by far the best.
Again as stated before the loo is big although not handrails close enough to the toilet.
The staff go above and beyond to help you. One time I was at the theatre and there were 2 ladies with their guide dogs there. At the interval the staff came with the ladies drinks, bowls of water for the dogs and then took the dogs out quickly for the toilet. I thought this was so great.
