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.

Very far from the action. You can see the whole stage with no obstructions other than the heads of the people in front of you. If you want a cheap seat, this is good value as you won't miss any part of the show. More

Whilst only missing minor details when characters first enter the stage due to people blocking them, this was a fantastic seat. There were no heads in the way and they are very close to the womens toilets for those who need to run during the interval. More

Although when I booked this seat it claimed to be restricted view, you are able to lean forward for one scene you may miss if you sat in you seat normally. This is my favourite seat in the dress circle for the price and view which you are given More
