About Us

What is SeatPlan?
SeatPlan was established in 2011 to help customers find the best seats for shows and events across the UK. You can use our cutting-edge interactive seating plans to browse thousands of reviews and photos of the view from different seats, all provided by real people.

SeatPlan uses different ticket suppliers to give customers the best availability and prices. We are connected to many venue ticketing systems to ensure you are browsing tickets in real-time from the official source.

As a seating specialist, we also provide expert accessibility guides to help customers plan and navigate their way around each venue.

Is SeatPlan a secure site?
