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 thought this seat wasn't worth the price I paid. I got fidgety twenty minutes in. It also cramps your neck because you have to look down to see the action (I was aware this would be a problem when I booked it though). Otherwise, I could see the whole... More

The seat is pretty bad. I am very much against body-shaming but for the experience of the theatregoers, this seat should come with warning. First of all, it is extremely narrow and tight and that is coming from a small person with an average BMI. It would... More
