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.

Just a warning that I've heard this show is always sold out and the evening I went was no exception and so legroom was taken up by shopping bags, rucksacks to name a few and NOT legs. The seat would have been a lot more comfortable if my knees were not... More

Good seat, mostly good view, leg room OK. I prefer not to be under the overhang of the floor above but that's personal choice. You do miss the front of the stage a bit because of the heads in front. Don't know if this was performance specific, but I felt... More
