Barbican Theatre Seating Plan

Good value seats

For those on a strict budget, the least expensive seats are located in the Gallery, which can feel extremely distant from the stage. Alternatively, seats towards the ends of rows in each section are cheaper, due to being angled towards the stage.

Premium seats

If money is no object then the best seats can be found in the centre of the Stalls and Circle for a perfect view of the stage. Rows F-J are considered to be an excellent distance from the stage, but you should sit further forward if you want a more intimate experience.

View was exceptional. Quite tight on legs. One thing to note, if this is important to you, this was a captioned performance and from this seat it was not that easy to look at captions and action at the same time. More
