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.

For the price, an okay seat. View was good, only missing the top of the stage which, for this show, didn't matter except for one brief bit at the end. The legroom was okay, but the seat was a bit tight - I'm a size 16 and had to squash in! More

Think these are great seats for the price and highly recommend them. Third time I have seen this show, first time was upper circle and second time stalls, but prefer upper circle seats. No issues with anyone sitting in front due to the rake of the seats.... More

Sitting here, you get a fantastic view of the stage and particularly for this production, feel so immersed in the energy from the actors and the music. It's phenomenal being so close and I think it really pays off. You might get a slight head in the way... More
