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.

Seats very comfortable, very top of stage is cut off by overhang from circle, but no action takes place at the very top - so you don’t miss anything. I had a very good view especially as no one was sitting in the seats directly in front of me!... More

Good view of stage, only had to lean forward a handful of times. Seats are quite close together, limited leg room and felt close to those either side. Seat itself was not very comfy either, the wood panel at the top dug in as the padding on back cush... More

Adelphi Theatre D21 view from seat photo

I was very excited about getting these seats at the centre of the upper circle for only £29.50 each (and in row D too!) however I forgot from last time, when I sat row D before, that the rake in the Adelphi Theatre is not as good as other theatres. T... More
