Sadler's Wells Theatre

Rosebery Avenue,
London,
EC1R 4TN

Sadler's Wells' has been a place of entertainment for over 300 years, ever since a Mr Dick Sadler opened his 'musick house' in Islington in the 1680s.

Soon afterwards an ancient medicinal well was discovered in the grounds and the enterprising Mr Sadler was quick to promote the water's health-giving properties. The spa soon became a fashionable attraction at the musick house, hence the name of Sadler's Wells.
