Good value seats

Because of the number of pillars in the venue, some seats are severely discounted, which can occasionally provide decent value for money. Alternatively, sitting in the front row of the Upper Circle is an excellent choice. Sit in seats towards the ends of the rows for a superb view of the stage on a hugely discounted price.

Premium seats

Premium seats are located in the front row of the Dress Circle in seats 12-21, with central Stalls seating also being excellent. These seats provide the best overall views of the stage and feel incredibly close to the action.

These seats are definitely good for the price. I also like the fact that they are more private but couldn't see everything on stage. You do have to lean forward at times and after a while you may get tired and just choose to listen. All in all, I... More
