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.

A fantastic seat in the second row of the dress circle. There seemed lots of leg room - I had a rucksack in the space and still had plenty of room. Seat is very comfortable. The view is great. You’re close enough to see all the expressions and to take... More

The view was pretty much non existent as most of the action takes place in the small part of the stage that's not visable from this seat. Even if no one else was there, you'd still miss out. Legroom for me was ok but the lady next to me was less comfortable. More
