Venue overview

The Apollo Theatre opened in 1901, with an aim to present light musical comedies. Now, the venue sees a high turnover of both plays and musicals throughout the year.

Constructed in a French Renaissance style, the theatre is opulently decorated, with a distinct lack of support pillars. In 2013, the Balcony collapsed during a performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, and has since been removed.

A relatively intimate theatre of 658 seats, the auditorium is divided between three floors. There are excellent views throughout the theatre, with very limited overhang from higher tiers and steep rakes throughout.

Good value seats

The front row of the Grand Circle is often reduced, and although it is quite high you can see the action very well. The best seats are one row behind in seats B15-18, as they do not have restrictions from the lighting equipment. Otherwise, sit towards the rear of the Stalls for a great view of the entire stage on a budget.

Premium seats

The Stalls provides excellent views of the stage throughout, even towards the rear of the seating. Sit in the front section of either the Stalls or the Dress Circle for an immersive experience.

From the back row of the dress circle, your view is actually really good from, giving you the full scope of the stage and all its height. The seat itself is ok, though a little cramped in terms of legroom. More

I was able to see what was happing through most of the performance. Due to props and some cast members sitting down, I was unable to see quite a lot of the show. Even though I had to use a booster seat I still struggled to see. There was a lot of legroom... More

High stage. This row allowed a decent view without being too far. The seats were offset with an okay rake but my view was slightly restricted by a tall person two rows in front. Ample legroom, seats are narrow and okay for comfort. More
