The grand old dames of Singapore’s performing arts scene, Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall (VTVCH), returns after a three-year refurbishment to Singapore's growing arts and cultural landscape. Its elegant Victorian facade is well-preserved, so are its famed clock tower and original passageway connecting the theatre and concert hall. Walk through this charming building to see its heritage elements carefully conserved, namely its 152-year-old twin domes. Providing mid-sized performance venues, VTVCH fills a gap in the local arts scene, and now has improved acoustics, music and dance rehearsal rooms and state-of-the-art facilities.

Walking distance within 10min from Esplanade or Fullerton Hotel. Great location and nice ambiance around the area with several museums. It is a different & refreshing experience to attend an afternoon or evening concert; beyond shopping in Orchard Road.

Walked past this gorgeous theatre at midnight. Got to hear the chimes from the clock tower too, which only added to the lovely old world atmosphere of the theatre and its surrounds. Would love to make a daytime visit in the future.

Went there for our wedding photoshoot. Extremely beautiful location. Quiet, serene, beautiful. Guards were friendly, did not chase us away but told us nicely the guidelines. Full of vending machines for hungry visitors too.

No guided tours were available in the theater during our visit, so we ended up exploring it from the outside, with numerous photo-ops of it and the area surrounding it.
