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.

I had a great view of the stage I was quite central so I could see everything that was happening during the show. I loved the amount of legroom that there was. I was very comfortable during the show. More

Outstanding view. You can see all of the Queens and are really up close. Seat is a long bench which isn't the most comfortable but the show is only 75 minutes and you will want to be bouncing around along to it anyway. Leg room is ok here. More

I would say that this is a near perfect seat for Six! The seat was close enough that you could see everything perfectly, but far enough away that you don't have to look up at all. The seat is almost central which means you get a fantastic view of the... More
