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.

Great view but the leg room is quite restricted and become quite uncomfortable by the end of the show. Grand circle is very steep so you don’t have to worry about people in front getting in the way of the stage More

There is a really good view from this seat. Just off centre of the stalls. Even when the people sat down in front of me, I could easily see the stage over their heads. Seats are positioned so you can also see in between the people in front. Good leg... More

The legroom is ok if you're not too fussy, I'm 6ft 2 so had to shuffle now and then but wasn't too bad! My knees kept hitting the binoculars though! The view itself is actually very good. We didn't miss a single bit of the show! More
