Good Value Seats

Depending on the production, tickets are usually not West End prices. The Stalls and front of the Grand Circle offer the best views of the stage, with seats towards the ends of these rows coming without the premium price tag. Seats in the Upper Circle may feel distant from the stage, but views are largely unobstructed and are typically less money. Several value pages are available, which can include pre-ordered interval drinks.

Premium Seats

Premium seats are located in the Stalls and in the front sections of the Grand and Upper Circles. Sitting front-centre of the Stalls ensures the best view of the stage, whilst sitting in the front of the Grand Circle is best for large-scale musicals.
