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.

Back row of upper circle in a row of 3 seats so ideal for access. Loads of legroom and space for bags and coat etc. Good but distant view of all of stage only slightly obscured stage right by lighting equipment. More

Lucky to pick these up as day seats, which were excellent value! The view is nice and central, however not perfect. My main gripe is that the rake in this dress circle is not very steep, which means heads in front can obscure your view quite significantly... More

Absolutely fantastic view!! We were upgraded from the back of the dress circle so I'm not sure what kind of price it usually is here, but I would definitely sit here again. The seats are fairly comfortable. Leg room isn't the best but it was fine for... More
