Duchess Theatre Seating Plan

The Duchess Theatre has a capacity of 503 seats. Section capacities are 315 Stalls and 188 Dress Circle. Use our interactive seating plan to view 1153 seat reviews and 616 photos of views from seat.

The Dress Circle is much narrower than the Stalls, and both sections offer a variety of views for a variety of prices. The central Stalls offer the best views, with side-angles from seats on the ends of the rows.

Good value seats

The cheapest seats are located in the final two rows of the Circle, which are far back from the stage, but for the size of the theatre are not particularly restricted. Alternatively, seats at the ends of the rows in the Stalls are often discounted, as they can be partially restricted, but are usually good value.

Premium seats

Due to the size of the theatre, most shows do not have premium priced seats. The best seats are in the front and centre of the Stalls, where the rake begins and the Dress Circle overhang is not yet in place. Alternatively, sit at the very front of the Dress Circle, in the centre of the row.

Recommended Box Seats

Get the right view for The Play That Goes Wrong by booking one of the Duchess Theatre box seats on your next visit. Located in the Dress Circle, the boxes have a capacity of between two and four patrons and are the ideal choice for those looking for a more spacious and private experience when seeing the show. All boxes are accessed via a private entrance and contain moveable chairs allowing you to maximise your legroom, view and overall comfort.

Box C is a two-person box situated at the rear of the Dress Circle, behind the main block of seating. From these seats, the very top of the stage is cut off due to the proscenium arch, but SeatPlan users still give high praise to the view due to the theatre’s intimate size and the great value of the seat. Box B is a larger 4-person box also found at the rear of the Dress Circle. Reviewers for this box complimented the spacious legroom and comfort of the box, without compromising too much on the view. Perfect for a couple’s date night, family outing or friend’s get-together, why not book a box at the Duchess Theatre to make your visit unforgettable.

Lovely seat. The auditorium is small and cozy, so even if you're in one of the last rows of the stalls the view is still very close. It isn't particularly well raked, so a very tall person sitting in front of you may affect your view. Nice legroom and... More

The seats were comfortable but incredibly narrow, it was also incredibly high. I felt kinda dizzy getting up and navigating around. However, they were great seats for the price I paid. I could see all of the stage and even saw the tech box which sometimes... More

Rather comfy seats compared to most theatres. It’s a small theatre so you feel very close to the stage which is nice. The safe rail does block the very very front of the stage but nothing really happens there and for the split second it dies you can just... More
