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 owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Group 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 is an amazing seat! You will need to lean forward to see the entirety of the stage, but you can lean on the safety railing in front of you and it's surprisingly comfortable! It's in the middle, so nothing on the sides of the stage is obstructed ... More

This seat offers a really nice pretty much central view of the stage, occasionally the heads of those in the row in front might block the front of the stage but I didn't find this to be massively distracting. The legroom was acceptable but I didn... More

Really great and pretty close up and central view of the whole stage. The seat didn't have a lot of legroom but was still a pretty comfortable seat. The seat is very central as well so you can see everything that's going on.... More
