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.

Could see the whole stage and all the action. The seats are quite close to each other, felt my arm constantly hitting off the man next to me but didn't really take away from the show, would sit here again.... More

This seat is a side view but nothing happens on the very far right hand side of the stage so you don't miss anything however you can't see the shoes when the performers are further back on the stage. Comfortable seats and plenty of legroom.... More
