Venue overview

The Duke of York’s Theatre, named in honour of King George V, opened in 1892 and has a rich history of performing classic and contemporary plays. Situated behind the Garrick Theatre, the venue usually has a fast turnaround of plays throughout the year.

With a seating capacity of 640, the theatre is relatively small, with the majority of seating in the Stalls section. Certain seats can offer restricted views depending on the production, and it is worth researching the seats before you make a purchase.

Good value seats

The Row H bench in the Upper Circle is an excellent bargain seat. Despite being towards the rear of the entire theatre, Row H offers great overall sight-lines for the lowest price possible. Sitting in the Upper Circle can be, at times, restricted, but there are bargains to be had there.

Premium seats

The best seats for this theatre are certainly towards the front of the Stalls, around row E and F in the centre. Avoid sitting too close to the action, as the stage is very high, but any further back and seats are affected by the deep overhang of the level above. Alternatively, sitting in the Royal Circle allows for some excellent, unrestricted views.

Good view from here - not as bad a side view as feared, was able to see 95% of the stage. The raking is almost nonexistent in the stalls, if you have someone tall in front of you that could be a problem. No massive discomforts in terms of leg room. More

Good distance from the stage, could see facial expressions/details whilst being far enough back to take in the full stage. Rake is poor meaning those sat in front can disrupt the view, wasn’t much of an issue for me during this show though. More
