South Gallery guide
London County Hall has three galleries, spanning three sides of the auditorium – the North, Central and South Galleries. The South Gallery is split into three sections, a central block and then a block of seats on the right and left-hand sides of the section. The South Gallery is high up and each row is raked, we do not recommend that customers who suffer from vertigo or those who struggle to climb stairs book seats in the South Gallery.
As a grade II listed building, London County Hall retains many of its original features, including pillars and architecture that cause restrictions to the view of the stage from many of the seats. These seats are particularly prominent in the side blocks of the South Gallery. Row A of the gallery has narrow access and may not be suitable for all patrons.
The best seats in the South Gallery are A1-3, which offer an uninterrupted view of the action below. Alternatively, seats in row A and B (4-7) in the central block provide a good, elevated view of the action. The best restricted view seat in this section is C15 which has a lighting rig in the sightline, but no part of the stage is obstructed.
A bar serving a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages is available for patrons in the South Gallery. The bar is located in the foyer on the gallery level outside of the auditorium.
Toilet facilities are available in the foyer on the gallery level for customers sitting in the South Gallery. Unfortunately, there are no accessible toilet facilities on this level of the venue.
