Getting here

The theatre is based in Fortuneswell. There are no car parking facilities at the theatre, however there is limited on-street parking in the Fortuneswell, Verne Common and Harbour View Road areas. Alternatively, Council operated car parks can be located at the top of Fortuneswell and at the Masonic Lodge. Information on car parks can be found here.


By bus or on foot

The theatre is served by the frequent by First Bus' no. 1 to Portland Southwell/Weymouth Kings Statue. If travelling from the Weymouth direction, alight at the Fortuneswell Laundrette / New Star Inn and take the short walk down the road to the theatre. If travelling from the Portland direction, alight at Fortuneswell Top and walk through Fortuneswell. The theatre can be found on the right-hand side. 


By train

The nearest train station is Weymouth, which is served by the London Waterloo - Weymouth and Bristol Temple Meads - Weymouth lines. Once at the station, a short walk can be made onto the Esplanade where buses frequently depart from the Kings Statue for Portland (stop K4). 



The Royal Manor Theatre strives to improve access to the theatre to enable enjoyment of productions for all. Unfortunately, access to the theatre for those with physical disability is limited. 


The theatre has a raised step at the front entrance, which leads in to the lower hall. 


Access to the theatre's auditorium is via a staircase. The theatre has recently installed a stairlift to help those with limited mobility access performances, however this facility is unlikely to be suitable for those who are wheelchair bound.


Some productions may use theatrical effects, including haze, gunshots, and flashing lights. If these are likely to cause discomfort to you, please contact us prior to booking.

For the hard-of-hearing, the theatre is fitted with an induction loop facility. Hearing-aid users should turn their device to the 'T' position to utilise this facility. Seats towards the aisles have the strongest coverage for this facility. 

If you require assistance of information about access arrangements, please contact us.


We don't like to disturb a settled audience when if we can help it, s latecomers may only be admitted if there is a suitable break in the performance.  If that's the interval, then this may simply be when you'll be permitted access. Remember - please allow enough time for parking, or pre-show travel.




For your comfort and safety, you may be subject to security checks on your visit to the theatre - we appreciate your patience and understanding whilst these are taking place.
