Has a studio stage and a theatre stage. Seen some amazing plays for both adults and children here. Lovely eatery and bar with a roof garden. Excellent for meeting up with people before a performance to have a bite to eat and quench one's thirst. Nearest stations are the Hammersmith and City's Metropolitan & Circle lines and Hammersmith tube's District and Piccadilly lines.
Lyrics has an open space outside where people sit and have their lunch, open water space for children to play around, banks all around, stores, food of different nationalities on Thursdays. It's simply a beautiful place. It hosts the summer festival every year with big screens broadcasting any sporting activities going on.
