Wilton's


"the most important surviving early music hall to be seen anywhere... It is of outstanding architectural and archaeological significance"
- The Theatres Trust

Situated in the historic East End of London, within easy walking distance of The Tower of London, the River and the City, Wilton's is a focus for theatrical and East End history as well as a living theatre, concert hall, public bar and heritage site.

Wilton's presents a large variety of artistic work including plays, opera, puppetry, classical music, cabaret, dance and magic shows, alongside a year round programme of education and heritage activities such as workshops, talks and tours. 

Below you will find information on the journey this incredible building has made, from music hall to Methodist's Mission and derelict warehouse to a thriving venue once more.


John Wilton Room


Opening Hours
Monday to Friday     11am-6pm
Saturday & Sunday  Closed

Thanks to support from Heritage Lottery Fund, we now have this permanent space in which to explore and share our history and heritage in a wide variety of ways. The room currently houses: four displays inspired by objects from our archaeology collection and created by a team of volunteers; a 3D model of the Wilton's building; an audio-visual installation telling the story of the Music Hall through the voices of characters who frequented Wilton's in its heyday; and a series of colourful banners offering an introduction to the story of our remarkable building.

Please note that the bars and auditorium are not currently open during these hours, although this may change in future. If you would like to see the auditorium without seeing a show, it is worth booking for one of our guided tours, which will also involve a visit to the John Wilton Room.
