Venue overview

The Adelphi Theatre is an exceptional example of Art Deco design and is situated directly on the Strand. Restored in 1993, the theatre is co-owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber's LW Theatres and Nederlander Theatres and has housed many prolific musicals and plays. Currently, the Adelphi hosts the smash-hit musical Kinky Boots.

Despite the stunning architecture, the theatre is notoriously tricky in terms of seating, and it is worthwhile investing some time to find the perfect place to sit. Seat prices differ across all levels due to various obstructions and overhangs, which means that the best value for money is often hidden away.

The Adelphi Theatre is split over three levels, with the two higher tiers set back from the Stalls. The best seats are towards the centre of each row, especially for the big musicals which are often housed at the theatre.

Good value seats

The front row of the Upper Circle is often discounted. If you can put up with limited leg room and want a clear view of the stage it is certainly worth a look. Make sure you go for the middle of the row first!

Premium seats

The Dress Circle provides some spectacular views, especially if you can sit close to the middle. Try the second or third row back and you will be able to see all of the action perfectly. If you are seeing a play you will be better off in the Stalls, as it is easier to catch the detail in the actors' expressions.

This seat offers a great view. (The safety rail doesn't affect the view at all) You could see everything and you're not too far away so you could see facial expressions and details. It's quite comfy and legroom was fine for me. More

Absolutely fantastic seats!! The view is really good and after a short time you forget the railing is even there. There is enough legroom and the seat is comfy, there is even a tiny table to put your things on. More

The view is good and you can see almost everything, the bar on the left is restricting the view a bit but nothing major. There was plenty of legroom but a taller person might may be not too comfy. I would buy again! More
