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.

The very front of the stage was obscured a little by the heads of the people in rows A-C, but this did not block much of the action, just some of the set - only once was a little leaning forward required, and only for a moment. The legroom is good enough... More

The stage is rather high so for a small person (like me), I'd advise either asking for a cushion or sit on jackets to get a better view. Otherwise wonderful seat right in the middle of the front row, with good comfort and excellent legroom. More

Perfect seat. This was the second row for this production, but the stage isn't too high so the viewing angle was fine and I didn't have to look up too much. The legroom is great and the seat was very comfortable. I would definitely sit here again. More
