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.

At least there are people in front of you here- the gallery is VERY high and I’m not normally funny about this but just open space in front was quite unexpected. This seat is actually only half depth so very little to sit on, more like perching. Was very... More
