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.

This is a restricted view seat. The far left of the stage is not visible. There is a safety rail in view. This is a good value seat close to the stage although on a higher level. The legroom is tight. The seat behind is wider and possibly more comfortable. More

Front row great for Anything Goes. Could see the dancing in all its glory. Great legroom. Saw the show before from a side view, having the centre view this time was 100% worth coming again. No issues with this seat or view. More
