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.

The view from here is impeccable! Fantastic distance from stage and sounds amazing. Seats were comfortable enough but definitely took use of the interval to stand up and stretch legs because of the small amount of legroom!... More

Sat in this seat before hence why we chose to sit here again. Seats are comfortable, you have a good view of the stage. You only you miss a tiny bit of the bottom left corner of the stage, but nothing happens there anyway!... More

Perfect side view with acres of lovely legroom as nothing in front! Just what I look for in the perfect seat! I have sat in many seats at The Adelphi but this was even better than my (previous) favourite at the end of row B! Slightly cheaper as sold ... More
