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.

All of the stage visible, and this seat is right in the centre of the front row, right behind the conductor so all the action is right there. You do sometimes have to turn your head to watch scenes that are set almost entirely stage left or stage rig... More

All of the stage visible, and not too high a stage that you have to crane your neck. Enough space for a small bag and coat, and the seats were nice and comfortable. The front row, however, got uncomfortably hot this time.... More
