Venue overview

The Gielgud Theatre, formerly the Globe Theatre, is named after prolific actor John Gielgud. Opening in 1906 and located on the famous Shaftesbury Avenue, the theatre retains much of its original design.

Typically used for short runs of plays and musicals, the venue is host to the long-running The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Good value seats

Due to the shape of the Dress Circle, a number of seats are restricted view, particularly towards the ends of rows A and B. These seats face the stage at an angle, but provide an intimate view of the action. Alternatively, sit in the Grand Circle for a bargain!

Premium seats

The best seats are located towards the mid-rear of the Stalls, just underneath the Dress Circle overhang. Seats towards the front of the theatre may miss some of the action on stage, due to the height of the stage. Sit in rows N-P for the best overall views.

This seat was great as I got it as part of Rush Tickets with TodayTix so only cost me a little when it is often sold at premium prices! The view is outstanding, dead centre and the rake of the seating means even if someone leans forward you miss noth... More

Due to curve of the theatre, this does give a restricted view and you can’t really see the far front of the right side of stage. You also get quite a few heads in the way due to people leaning and the average raking. However, I didn’t feel too discon... More
