Princess of Wales & Royal Alexandra - Directions

The Princess of Wales and Royal Alexandra theatres are located just a block apart, along King Street West, in the heart of Toronto's Entertainment District. The theatres are one block west of Roy Thomson Hall and two blocks north of the Rogers Centre, the CN Tower and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.


Visitors arriving by rail (VIA or GO Trail) can walk to the Princess of Wales and Royal Alexandra theatres from Union Station.

It is just a ten-minute walk to reach the theatres; west along Front St. to Simcoe, and north on Simcoe to King or you can take the subway from Union Station (on the University line) one stop to the St. Andrew Subway Station.

If you are arriving by car from out of town, the Princess of Wales and the Royal Alexandra are just north of the Gardiner Expressway (the QEW, to and from Hamilton, Niagara and Buffalo).

King Street Transit Priority Corridor may affect your parking route

The City of Toronto's King Street Transit priority corridor will reduce traffic in front of the Mirvish King Street theatres. You will continue to be able to travel between University Avenue and Peter Street, though no left turns will be permitted at any point through the King Street Transit priority corridor area.


For those arriving by car at the Royal Alexandra and Princess of Wales, there are four levels of parking located beneath the Princess of Wales, with an entrance ramp off John Street. An elevator takes you from the parking garage to the theatre entrance on King Street West. Please note: there are no left turns allowed off King St. West during rush hours; if you are coming to the Princess of Wales Theatre, eastbound on King St. West, you may have to go around the block to reach the John St. entrance to the parking garage.

Indoor parking is also available at the Hyatt-Regency Toronto, on King St., one block west of the Princess of Wales.

The Ed Mirvish Theatre can be found on Yonge Street, just below Dundas Square, across the street from the Eaton Centre. The box office and main entrance are at the rear of the building, at 244 Victoria Street.
