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.

View really good leg room brilliant, my husband is 6’3 and he was fine. Only downside is as there are no armrests dividing seats up. You can get certain people sharing some of your seat. Would book those seats again though More

The good news is that you have quite some legroom, the bad news is that there are no arm rests, so you are really close to your neighbor (basically touching arms the whole time). I think I would have preferred a seat more close to the stage, but this... More

Slightly to the right of the dress circle but you don't notice it at all and it may as well be centre. Perfect, unobstructed view of the entire show. No aisle in the middle so a lot of getting up to let people past but that didn't affect the experience... More
