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.

Surprisingly good and clear view of the stage despite being marked as slightly restricted. Just bear in mind that the Grand is rather steep so no good for those with vertigo, excellent value for money otherwise. More

Seat was comfortable enough although not much padding and there was plenty of legroom for me. It’s not too far away from the stage so you can still see facial expressions well. However, this seat is directly behind the seat in front and so the person... More
