Opera Holland Park

31 May 2022 to 13 August 2022, Holland Park, London
Where is it?

Opera Holland Park is based in the beautiful surroundings of Holland Park, in west London.

How to get there?

Opera Holland Park is situated in the heart of London, making it easily accessible from any of London’s airports or train stations by public transport.

The nearest tube stations are Holland Park (Central Line) and High Street Kensington (District & Circle Lines), and London Overground trains run to the nearby Kensington Olympia Station. There are six main bus routes that pass the Earls Court entrance to the park on Kensington High Street: Routes 9, 10, 27, 28, 49 and C1. Buses are also available along Holland Park Avenue, outside Holland Park station.

Taxis can drop off and pick up outside any of the park entrances. The nearest park entrances to Opera Holland Park are via Ilchester Place Gate, Abbotsbury Road Car Park, Duchess of Bedford’s Gate and Kensington High Street.

Please note, there is no parking at the theatre and parking spaces around the park are limited.

Dress code

There is no dress code at Opera Holland Park and we pride ourselves on our informal and welcoming atmosphere. Our auditorium is canopied so there’s no need to worry about the rain, however we always recommend bringing layers as even on the hottest summer days it can become cooler towards the end of the evening.

Local accommodation

Thanks to Opera Holland Park’s central London location, there is a wide variety of accommodation available. We recommend booking in advance for best availability.

About the festival

Each Opera Holland Park season features a range of different operas, ranging from beloved classics to new works to operas rarely performed elsewhere. Surrounding our main programme of operas, we also host concerts, recitals, family events, ballet performances and lots more.

What can tourists visit nearby?

Opera Holland Park is based in west London. All London attractions are within easy reach by public transport, but we are particularly close to Kensington Palace and the South Kensington museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum.

What are the venues like?

Every year we build a temporary canopied auditorium against the backdrop of Holland House, in the centre of Holland Park, West London, where we hold all our main-stage opera performances. For the 2021 Season we reimagined our space to reflect the natural beauty of the theatre’s setting and to allow for social distancing. In 2022, we plan to update this design with improved sightlines and additional seating levels for our audience’s comfort.

Food & drink

Opera Holland Park offers a variety of sustainable refreshment options sourced from independent companies within a 50 mile radius of Holland Park, so you can make the most of your evening in the beautiful surroundings of Holland Park. Our onsite bar is open both before performances and during the interval, offering a selection of drinks and snacks for you to enjoy. We also offer picnic tables for customers who would like to bring their own food to enjoy before the show and during the interval. Picnic tables must be booked in advance.

Beyond the theatre, a variety of independent restaurants are available along High Street Kensington. We particularly recommend our friends Il Portico, Kitchen W8 and Clarke’s Restaurant on Kensington Church Street.
