Venue overview

The Theatre Royal Glasgow supports a wide variety of entertainment, regularly hosting large touring productions including West End tours of The Woman in Black and All My Sons. Originally opening in 1867 and reopening in 1985 after two fires, the Theatre Royal is home to Scotland’s resident companies; the Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet. The venue also acts as a City Centre for seminars, meetings and conferences throughout the year.

In 2005, ATG took over management of the theatre, ensuring that the Theatre Royal Glasgow would continue to provide first-class entertainment. Open for backstage tours during the day, with costumes and information on display, the building was restored in 2014 so that new, stylish contemporary designs could complement the original Victorian charm. Lifts were also put in so that the Circles and Balcony were accessible for all audience members. The foyer now includes a larger bar and café, whilst toilets and bars were renovated in each level and a new rooftop bar was put in place. With a seating capacity of 1,541, the theatre is built across the Stalls, Dress Circle, Upper Circle and Balcony, all offering varying views of the stage.

Good value seats

Less expensive seats are located towards the edges and rear of the Stalls and Dress Circle. The Upper Circle is a good bet for those wishing to see the whole stage, but it can feel fairly distant from the action. Some views towards the ends of rows may be a little restricted but are still good value for money.

Premium seats

The Theatre Royal offers affordable ticket prices for premium shows. The Stalls offer the best overall views of the stage, which is reflected in ticket pricing. Sitting in the front-centre of the Dress Circle is recommended for large-scale musicals. An Ambassador’s Lounge is also available in selected ticket deals.

This seat is such a perfect seat in this theatre. Most of the legroom in this theatre is great but particularly this seat being on the aisle. It is marked as restricted view because of the overhang but it doesn’t affect the performance or view at all.... More

This seat is a side on view of the stage which means you will need to lean forward. The seats aren't the most comfortable and the legroom isn't the best even for me at 5". Although taking the price into account this is a good enough seat if you're on... More

Really comfortable - great legroom as it’s on the aisle so you can stretch. The view is really good - advertised as restricted view but there isn’t really any. Also infinitely cheaper than neighbouring seats. More
