Venue overview

The Aldwych Theatre dates back to 1905, and was originally designed as a twin theatre to the Novello, bookending the famous Aldwych. Today, the theatre has been home to many successful musicals and plays, with the hit Carole King musical Beautiful currently entertaining audiences in the large theatre.

Built in a similar style to the Novello, the Aldwych is traditionally Georgian. Split over three levels, the lower Stalls are underground whilst the Dress Circle is at street level. The theatre is tall and narrow, with good views throughout the auditorium.

Good value seats

Seats 1-6 and 28-33 in Row A of the Dress Circle are often discounted as they follow the curve of the balcony and face the stage side-on. They are the least affected seats in the price reduction, so if you don’t mind having a slightly rounded view of the stage these seats may be a bargain.

Premium seats

The best views of the stage come from the front Stalls section, around Row B and C. Aim to sit as centrally as possible, although aisle seats fall within the proscenium and can be just as good.

I never normally sit in the dress circle but we had complimentary tickets so had no choice. I was pleasantly surprised by the view. You can see all of the stage and there was a good rake meaning that you could see easily over the top of others heads.... More

Aldwych Theatre F26 view from seat photo

The whole stage is visible from this seat and the theatre is not massive so you are not that far from the stage. The legroom is limited and I found myself having to adjust my legs regularly. Not good for someone with long legs. Despite the limited le... More
