The Normansfield Theatre is a Victorian era building located in Teddington, England.

The theatre is on the site of Normansfield Hospital, which was a self-sufficient Victorian hospital complex run by Dr John Langdon Down. The hospital was where Doctor Langdon Down conducted the pioneering research into the syndrome now known as Down's Syndrome. The theatre was constructed in 1877 and completed in 1879 for the use of the patients.

The theatre is held in care by the Langdon Down Centre Trust.[1]

Work on restoring the previously derelict Grade II* listed[2] building began in 2010.[3] It has now been converted for residential use and the former hospital workshops have been re-developed as social housing. The building has been removed from English Heritage’s At Risk register.[3]

It is a popular filming location, such as for Agatha Christie's Poirot in the episode "The Tragedy at Marsdon Manor", "The Case of the Missing Will",[4] "After the funeral" the 2009 film Dorian Gray and the ITV series Downton Abbey.[5]
