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.

Plenty of space in this seat. Was sold at a discount due to restricted view, there is a bar that blocks a small section to the left but this did not ruin my enjoyment of the show. Really worth the discount ticket price. More

Seat felt a little low to the ground but besides that was perfectly comfortable. So much legroom in the front row that you can have your legs straight out and people can still walk between you and the stage. View for me was perfect having seen the show... More

I could see all of the stage from where I was sat, despite being towards the back of the stalls under the overhang of the dress circle! The rake meant that people’s heads weren’t particularly in my way and the seats are placed between each other anyway!... More
