Venue overview

The Garrick Theatre first opened in 1889 and was financed by W.S Gilbert. Named after prolific Shakespearean actor David Garrick, the theatre was the first in the West End to be named after an actor. Decorated in an Italian Renaissance style, the stage is marked by decorative pillars. The Garrick Theatre regularly houses successful one-off plays, most recently hosting the year-long residency of the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company, which included productions such as , Romeo and Juliet and The Entertainer. In the past, the theatre has hosted musicals such as Rock of Ages and Chicago.

Since renovations, you are able to hear the rattle of the underground during productions. Seating at the Garrick Theatre is notoriously tricky, with support pillars and circle overhangs restricting the view for many seats. The Stalls and Dress Circle offer the best views.

Good value seats

The best seats on a budget can be found in selected seats towards the rear of the Stalls, where seats are usually discounted because of the many support pillars and Dress Circle overhang. Otherwise, buy a Grand Circle ticket and hope for an upgrade!

Premium seats

Sit between Row D and J in the Stalls for an excellent, unrestricted view of the stage. Alternatively, the Dress Circle offers incredibly clear and detailed views, without feeling far away from the stage. These seats have brilliant views of the stage, which is reflected in the price of tickets.

This seat is brilliant and makes one feel almost part of the performance. I could appreciate details in the set that would be lost on seats further back. Leg room is decent enough although there is not much of an incline. More

Legroom is great here and as comfortable as you can expect from a theatre seat. Unfortunately the seat is rather directly behind the one in front without any real slope so you tend to get a head directly in the way. Very central though and does not feel... More

I was extremely happy with this seat, especially as the theatre had upgraded me from U17! No idea why, but I didn't complain. Leg room was the best I've had in a theatre. I could actually stretch my legs out! The view was excellent too. I could see expressions... More
