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.

Seats are pretty comfortable but the leg room is quite limited here. You can't really stretch your legs out and it can start to feel a little cramped by Act 2. Otherwise, despite being right to one side, the view here is great and you don't miss anyt... More

Most of the general action takes place at the very front of the stage so patrons will find viewing rather tedious from this seat once the show is underway. Most people in front tend to lean forward thus blocking the view further. The stage also seem... More
