In 1900, at the dawn of a new century, the London Hippodrome opened its doors as a 'circus of variety', dazzling audiences with water spectacles and extraordinary novelties ranging from performing polar bears to plunging elephants.
Through the decades, it staged music, dance, revue and musicals before its 1958 transformation into The Talk of the Town, a theatre restaurant with glamorous floor shows and a galaxy of world-class stars.
Charlie Chaplin, Houdini, Audrey Hepburn, Julie Andrews and Judy Garland are just some who have taken to the Hippodrome stage. Today, The Hippodrome Casino continues this long tradition of pioneering entertainment; bringing individuality to the West End and welcoming visitors to a building with a proud heritage and many fascinating stories to tell.
