Venue overview

The Arts Theatre is situated in Leicester Square, in the heart of the West End. Opening in 1927 as a private members club, the venue is now an independent theatre which provides a platform for smaller plays and musicals.

The auditorium is intimate, with a capacity of 350 across the Stalls and the Circle. It is a traditional black box theatre, which boasts good views throughout.

After a refurbishment in 2009, the Arts Theatre hosts comfortable seats and good overall sight-lines. Slight restrictions can be found at the ends of Row J, which are behind pillars, and Rows M and N, which are affected by the Circle overhang. Slip seats in the Circle are restricted due to the angle of the seating.

Good value seats

The Circle Slips are usually heavily discounted, due to facing side-on to the stage. These seats can be excellent value for money, particularly seats 8-14, which are in front of seats 1-7. As they are angled towards the stage, some leaning is required, but the whole stage can be seen. These are benches rather than theatre seats.

Premium seats

The best seats for viewing the action on stage are the centre of rows B-H in the Stalls and the centre of rows B-C in the Circle. From these seats you will be able to clearly see all the action on stage without any kind of viewing restriction or inconvenience.

Possibly the best view in the house. Definitely a good option if you want to see the entire thing (especially when something is going on further back on the stage) and still actually pretty close to the stage in matters of distance. More

Row BB is the front row in this production. Legroom adequate. Having to crane my neck throughout the show as the stage is high resulted in a neck ache so despite being up close, I would not choose this seat again. More

The view from this is really good. The seat is at the end of the row, however you can still see the entire stage as the theatre is small. Sometimes due to the sight lines, some Queens block your view of other Queens but this is only for a few seconds.... More
